Hi guys,

I'm not 100% I'm correct, but I thought i would ask here anyways.

At first I noticed the guests on my Xen server were no longer reachable by SSH.
Luckily my dom0 still was so i logged in to see what was wrong.

No matter what i did, I kept bumping into "Input/output error" messages..

A hard reset was the only option, and everything came up just fine, and is working again. This is why I suspect some kind of bug with the git xen 2.6.32.x kernel, which is why I'm asking here if anyone has a clue or maybe encountered the same thing before, or - a man can hope - just fixed a similar issue in that kernel ;)

The server had been online for 6 days, running 6 guests without any of them being very loaded. Running Xen 4.0.1, kernel, XFS filesystems.

A git pull updated my currently in use code to this:

75cc13f..3d14ce7  xen/stable-2.6.32.x -> origin/xen/stable-2.6.32.x

Any pointers will be very much appreciated!

Kind regards,

Bart Verwilst
