Could you post your Xen domU configuration?  Also, are there any Events in the Event Log upon reboot that indicate why it hard locks?  Any output in "xm dmesg" or "xm log" that may be related?

I have done some more testing and the problem is not related to having
two NICs, I think it is something to do with traffic going across the
LAN. Using WAN or LAN bridge is OK, using WAN or LAN MAC is OK but as
soon as Lan IP comes up I get a couple of pings before the VM hard

The only service running on the LAN is an SQL Server 2005 Native Client
ODBC connection to another system on the same LAN network. How do I go
about debugging/fixing this?

Subject: [Xen-users] Xen PV 0.9.12-pre3 with Multiple NICs/Bridges, Hard

Hi Everyone,

I'm using a Xen 3.30 on Centos Dom0 setup with two bridges, one for WAN
and One for LAN (Both are on separate physical NICs within Dom0). 

I can use a 2 NIC setup with Server 2003 Pure HVM fine. A single NIC
setup works fine with the Pre3 drivers but as soon as I add the second
NIC the system hard locks within a few seconds of networking coming up.
Both NICs looks fine from device manager and Network connections.

Any ideas how I can get this working with 2 NICs. Is a different version
of the GPL PV driver more likely to work?

Thanks in advance,
