Re: [Xen-users] Xen GPL PV, W2k3 SBS, Xen Net driver

I have experienced this same phenomenon with my SBS server.  The slow

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

Running netsh from the command prompt hung.  I'm sure it would've
completed eventually but I gave up on it.

Ah. That kind of makes sense. Netsh uses the same backend api as the
network manager.

Are you able to try booting in one of the recovery/safe modes?


I did a fresh install of 0.9.11-pre9. On first boot I went into Safe Mode with Networking support and selected the boot option with GPLPV. </downloads/Xen%20PV%20Drivers%200.9.11-pre9.exe>It took about 5mins "preparing network connections" before the login prompt was displayed but I got logged in to the desktop in the usual time. Once logged in I was able to give the adapter an address, reboot and every thing works as expected - normal boot up and login speed.
