Hi All.

I have tried hiding two PCI cards from Dom0 on boot up in accordance with the documentation.

Xen 3.3.1_18546_16-0.1 upon openSuSE-11.1 release.

Using the following /boot/grub/menu.1st directives:

title Xen -- openSUSE 11.1 -
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/xen.gz
module /boot/vmlinuz-
root=/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-1AMCC_U15626923F6A26004196-part1 resume=/dev/ disk/by-id/scsi-1AMCC_U15626923F6A26004196-part2
splash=silent showopts vga=0x317
pciback.permissive pciback.hide-(04:00.0) (06:04.0) (08:0e.0)
module /boot/initrd-

after booting - if I run "lspci", Dom0 still sees the PCI devices I am trying to hide exclusively for the use of DomU's.

Can anyone advise what may be the issue why this is not working?

Thanks. Grahame

(appended is my vm-dmesg if required).
