Still, from my experience, if you disable hardware virtualization in BIOS Setup, bhyve does not work. I agree with you that bhyve is a masterpiece. The way it works with ZFS is brilliant too. I usually use the vm-bhyve shell with it, but it seems to be supported by some hypervisor management tools like libvirt. -- Victor Sudakov VAS4-RIPE http://vas.tomsk.ru/ 2:5005/49@fidonet
