For Vmware i see that you need to specify disk timeouts for various guest OS's in order for them to survive faults on the array(when the VDIs are on san), but i do not see any such timeout's for Xen. I cannot set them either since the files do not exist. (except for windows probably).

Any ideas as to if this is important, or if we can set them manually in guest os's (linux, solaris etc).

I have the simplest of tastes;
I am easily satisfied with the best.
