Hi all from Italy!!!

I have a strange problem:
From 8 months I have a perfectly working setup of Proxmox 1.1 in a production environment, 3 Virtual Machines, 1 Win2k server + 1 WinXP Professsional kvm and a Debian Lenny OpenVZ.

Because i'm using RAID1 software, I can't upgrade to 1.4 (I tried the upgrade script, a disaster).

The problem is that a business management software, installed on WinXP machine, use a lot of SMB traffic, and it seems to freeze host.

I made a lot of tests, passing software on Win2k machine, changing virtual NICs and their speed. Always the same: suddenly, without any apparent reason, host freeze.
After a hard reboot, all normal.
No trace on logs. I'm sure it's not a HW problem.

The only thing I noticed, freezes seem to be related with high load SMB traffic. Only when software is used heavily, a freeze can occur.

Any idea?

Any idea?

yes, do not use software raid as we point this out every time.

we do not support old releases so you should move to the latest version.
