Ticket #4486 (closed defect: fixed)
VirtualBox 3.0.2 hard hangs Solaris 10u6 kernel when running HW assisted VMs -> fixed in SVN/3.0.6
|Reported by:||tallpaul||Owned by:|
After installing the 3.0.2 update (and rebooting to make sure driver structures were consistent), attempting to run previously built and running (under 2.x) virtual machines (Windows 2008, Linux Ubuntu 8.10, Centos) will eventually hard hang the Solaris 10 host kernel it is running upon.
Started Win2k8 and Ubuntu guests headless (with HW virtualization enabled). System hard hangs after about 3 hours runtime. Could not break console to MDB (system was booted w/debugger enabled). System does not character echo nor respond to network (ping). No disk activity observed.
Same hang happened almost immediately after starting 3 guest VMs concurrently. All VMs had HVM enabled with one CPU allocated to each guest (IO Apic enabled).
This configuration had been running solidly under VB 2.2.2 for months uptime.
No entries were noted in either the VM logfile(s) nor syslog. Guests could be resumed after host is rebooted. Currently reverting to 2.4.x.
- Priority changed from major to blocker
