1) on the stock 64bit 9.0 & 9.1-beta XENHVM kernels, we still had the

instead of the default ada0p2, and then edit fstab accordingly. I assume
others here had to do that as well?
Yes, but I think that's because with the XENHVM kernel the disks are using
a different driver. There's a difference between the ad and ada drivers.
2) I'm sure this will show a lack of understanding on my part, but I'm
curious about the xen-tools port that has been in the ports collection
little while. As per the pdf on the migration/suspend scripts, this
be installed first. I would think the current port - being called
"xen-tools", would/should include these migration/suspend scripts. It's
xen-tools (in Citrix parlance) without that capability. So, is this a
of the new scripts just "finish off" the work that went into the current
xen-tools script and the xen-tools port in the ports collection is
functionally incomplete? I guess I'm unclear as to the
history/relationship/status of the xen-tools port and these
This is likely where it will show up. I've been talking to the ports@ team
and it seems to make sense that we include it in that port.
3) In some of my googling on 64 bit XENHVM "how-to's", one of them (can't
find it at the moment) mentioned 64 bit Freebsd not working right under
with regards to SMP, and the how-to offered several patches to disable
amongst other related items. To run the new migration/suspend scripts,
other people here need to use those patches?
I have a feeling this is an old/resolved issue as I've not seen it yet.
