Description

Getting these messages during the install. It's accessing the ISO installation CD and the VDI disk. I've tried different chip types, and had best success using the same ATA controller for both the CD image and the installation drive. When using the SATA, it seems to fail, but I haven't looked at the logs. I assume it's the same problem. Here's a bit of the log file from the VM.

The VM Manager also SEGFAULTed when I powered off the machine, and I'll attach the crash dump output as well.

This is also present in versions 5.2 and 6.0 releases as well.

It also occurs with LUN# 0 which is the VDI disk.

comment:2 Changed 20 months ago by unixwzrd

Have tried several/many combinations of controllers and locations for each device on the controllers. This is reporting problems with ASYNC IO on pretty much any type disk controller type.

Replying to unixwzrd:

… VDI …

Please describe the physical storage for the virtual disk.


I sometimes have the same symptoms with virtual disk images stored on OpenZFS with native compression (currently ZStd at its default) on a StoreJet Transcend – /dev/da3 at the time of < https://bsd-hardware.info/?probe=86613b04d3https://bsd-hardware.info/?probe=86613b04d3>.
