ESXi image as guest crashes Solaris host
|Reported by:||joe42||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
We have been running an ESXi "server" as a guest under VirtualBox (no this does not make sense in production but it is very useful for testing ESXi API interactions in a development setting).
However, starting up the ESXi image with VBoxHeadless will often cause the entire hypervisor host to crash; the Solaris kernel dumps a core and reboots.
If the ESXi image starts up successfully it seems to be able to continue to run. But most of the times when you start up the image, the host system will be taken down.
This happened on 4.1.6 and 4.1.4.
