Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Hotplugging SCSI device to Windows 2k3 GOS

Hi James,


Looks like I am missing something in my test setup.


I have tried gplpv_fre_wnet_x86_0.10.0.69.msi. But with these drivers I am not even seeing a hot plug event in Windows GOS when I run the xm scsi-attach in Dom0. With the WinGPLPV-0.9.x, I used to get a hot plug event in Windows.


Do I need start any specific component/module in Xen, before hot plugging? I tried this with a Xen 3.3.1 and with fresh Windows GOS image which didn’t had any preinstalled GPL drivers.

Try using the 0.10.x series of GPLPV drivers. You'll need to run the

uninstall script before installing.


I just tested then and it worked fine under 0.10.x. 0.9.4 may only

support the pre-release version of pvscsi that never made it into xen.
