  • Description modified (diff)
  • Summary changed from OpenSolaris08/11 guest hang on Solaris 10 5/09 to OpenSolaris08/11 guru mediation on Solaris 10 5/09

The actual problem is that VBox is not able to allocate enough usable pages. How much RAM does your host have? And did you run any VM or other memory-intensive application in parallel to that VM?

Increasing swap to 10Gb helps. There are no errors at any workload. Thanx for support!!!

Solaris 10 has a double memory accounting bug. Please check the link above. It could be due to this bug.
