I upgraded an otherwise healthy HP DL 380 G7 from OVM 3.0.3 to OVM 3.1.1, and now it will not boot. As soon as it gets by the grub screen, it gets about 4-5 lines into booting, and power cycles over and over. I cant see why, as it power cycles too quickly.
The same thing happens when trying to boot from the OVM 3.1.1 install CD after the main screen (press enter).
Has anyone else experienced this before? I don't know where to go from here..
Worth pointing out however, that the DL 380G6 is not compatible...
Oracle has downgraded the CCISS drivers from OVM 3.0.3 (CCISS v3.6.28) to OVM 3.1.1 (CCISS v3.6.26), which apparently changes how CCISS devices show up to the OS, because now, I have /dev/cciss/c0d1 device (my old local SR) that was previously a /dev/sdb device (and functioned fine). Now my SR is not detected by multipath (even with adding a device directive to allow it)... its a mess. In order to boot my vms I had to manually mount the cciss device, and manually run xm create..
411seeker see my previous post regarding manually mounting the cciss device in the same place it used to be, and running xm create on the VM's cfg file. The other option is to downgrade to 3.0.3 and let Oracle do something about it
you need "Oracle VM Server 3.1.1 SDK Template" from edelivery, then start virtual machine end rebuild kernel from source rpm with CONFIG_X86_MPPARSE=n on that virtual machine and then install new rpm to ovm server
