Solaris 10 Host reboot - after kernel panic...

Reported by: JensMR Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.16 Keywords: Host crash panic
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Solaris

Description

After patching our Solaris System 10 with the actual patch cluster (21.5.2012) and updating VirtualBox to version 4.1.16 our server crashes. In the system messages we always find the attached message ahead of the crash. The referenced CPU number varies and so do the addresses. But the rest is 'stable'.

Since January we used VirtualBox v4.1.8 without any crashes. And after having troubles with version 4.1.16 I reinstalled v4.1.8 but the crashes persist.

System is a SunFire X4600M2 with 8 sockets (Opteron 8356) and 256GB ECC memory. No hardware changes between the running and the crashing system.

The guest systems did not change (predominant is WinXP, but linux systems are also running -- sometimes). The logfiles of the users VMs do not show additional messages. It does not seem to be load-dependent - right now only a small number of users is working on the system (load < 20%).

Did somebody else experience this? Any ideas? Please let me know, if you need additional logfiles, stats or data.

Could you please upload VBox.log for the VM that ran when the kernel panicked?

You will find two new files attached. Each one containing the vbox.log files of the open sessions at the relevant date and time. Within the attached files the logfiles are separated by ===========

Replying to ramshankar:

New errors with the new patchset. Previously installing a patch (147441-??) fixed the problem - at least until I installed the recommended patchset from December. Now the problem is back - but this time it is only after having installed the patchset, no changes to VirtualBox.

_The following lines are from the messages file and show what's been happening the first time the system crashed (last lines show the boot process) : See file 28_12_2012.txt

_The second crash shows a Panic (again the last lines show the boot process): See file 31_12_2012.txt

So it seems to be the same error message as in June...

Can you be more specific about the patchset you installed? We need a scenario to reproduce the problem and the VBox version for which you saw the problem. A VBox.log of such a VM session would also be helpful.

Replying to frank:

The patchset is the recommended patchset for Oracle Solaris (x86-64):

Title on Oracle Support website: "Patch Recommended OS Patchset Solaris 10 x86: Recommended Patchset for Solaris 10 x86 (Solaris Operating System patches only)" Last Updated 19-Dec-2012 13:00 Product Solaris Operating System Release Solaris 10 Operating System Platform Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit) After installation we have "SunOS mri000 5.10 Generic_147441-27 i86pc i386 i86pc"

The installed VirtualBox worked fine from June until December 27th. After installing the Solaris patchset the whole system crashes - not only the VirtualBox-Processes.

Thanks for the logs. Btw, the files VBOX.logs and VBOX.2.logs have the same content.
