Subject Re: System VM's hanging
Date Mon, 06 May 2013 16:46:06 GMT
I am not seeing any splash screen, I see the Seabios screens and then the
PIX boot line, then GRUB loading stage2.. and the KVM process eats 100% of
one of the cores for about 5 minutes, then the management server tries to
restart.  I am using CS 4.0.2

0) acton-systemvm-02062012.qcow2.bz2
1) I will try this, I ran qemu-img check on all the image files and they
all are fine (I did a virsh dumpxml s-1-vm and looked at the disk it was
referencing), I have also reinstalled SystemVM as per installation
2)  I cannot even get it to let me get to a point where it will let me edit
grub boot parameters.
3)  Like I said above the System VM doesn't even show me a splash screen.

I have reinstalled management and system templates and am trying it again.
 I will also try to run the system VM's by command line and see if it works
from command line. I had everything working with basic networking, as soon
as I switch it over to advance networking (using VLAN) is when this started
