Because it is my first post to the list i want to say Hello to everybody.


Currently, at work, I try to establish the environment based on XEN virtualization solution. We want to us it to host Windows 2003 systems in SMP mode and as primary requirement it need to support more the one CPU. So I’m very interested how this discussion ended.


Daniel, did you run SMP Windows in DOMU with more than one vCPU? It’s work well on Xen 3.0.4 version?


I try the gentoo 2006.1 with XEN 3.0.2 and while its fail I try openSUSE with XEN 3.0.3 witch work well without acpi and one VCPU. While I try to set acpi and apic it run installer using two VCPUs well but hang when it try to detect the hardware. So I consider to try porting the Xen 3.0.4 to do that and answer for the posted question will be very useful while it save my time while I will know if it still “worth to fight”. If not for a while I will use only one VCPU instant.


Thanks for the answer ore some suggestion about how to archive the goal. I seating on this more than two weeks and I start to lose my patent.

Best, Bart.
