A new question on the XenProject.org Q&A asks about Solaris 11 HVM DomU on Xen Project 4.*.  I haven't found much on the subject online (probably reflecting the general lack of interest in the subject, given the fade of Solaris).

Does anyone have any insight?


"master" asks:

"I am using Ubuntu 14.04 amd64 server on a MSI MS-7737 with an Intel E5-2603 v2 as the host with the xen-system-amd64 package.
Most of my trials on guests are successful except...

After days of reading my Google friend and nearly a hundred of trials on config file, BIOS config, xen boot options, I did not find a way to boot Solaris 11.1 nor 11.2 HVM domU.

Solaris just hang, I waited for hours, checked iso sum, ects...
sudo xl create solaris.xl
cat solaris.xl
builder = 'hvm'
vcpus   = '4'
memory  = '4096'
name    = 'solaris'
vif = [ 'bridge=xenbr0' ]
disk = [ 'file:/home/dummy/sol-11_1-text-x86.iso,hdd:cdrom,r' ]
vncpasswd = 'vncpasswd'
Did Solaris is part of supported HVM guest OS?
Did someone have a working configuration and could share information?

Thanks in advance for your support. "
