Thread-topic: [Xen-users] Xen GPL PV, W2k3 SBS, Xen Net driver
I always backup a machine before make important changes on the Setup.

If I boot the described machine without /gplpv, the system runs fine.

Next week all accounts are moved to another Server, this Exchange Server is 
empty and I can test all you want.

I hope you've backed up your production system first :)

Thanks for testing this. The "Preparing Network Connections" delay is
expected, as Windows seems to do this whenever network cards are fiddled
with. The delay (or hang?) in opening the network configuration is not
expected though...

Could you try and change config using 'netsh'? It's a command line tool,
and if you aren't familiar with it it might be a bit baffling...

I wonder how hard it would be to copy the registry config across from
the card that is being replaced, eg look through the registry and find
the config for the qemu card with the same MAC address as the gplpv
card... that might break more things than it fixes though.

I'll try and find time to test the above situation but it will involve
setting up active directory which is more involved than just a simple
