Hi list,

I have the following problem:

I need to change the block-device timeout values for DomU's using vbd block devices (eg xvda, etc...). The block-devices are iSCSI devices off a NetAPP storage box, attached to virtualization hosts running Xen 3.4.2 on Centos 5, using OpeniSCSI.

I can set iSCSI timeout values, as well as the block-device timeout in Dom0 context in


However, this sysfs tunable does not exist in DomU context for the xvd-devices.

Any ideas?
