I assume Windows VMs that get their drivers from Windows Update will not have this capability unless we install the simple service:1727.
On github, it says that the the VM service has to respond within 1 minute, but it would take several minutes to backup a database. The blog page says it will wait for answer. Sounds like Vates knows the answer is somewhere in between. We will wait, but only for so long 🙂
This is unconditional for a reason. The CSTATE errata in Nehalem are crippling - IIRC a core going in an out of a deep C state does not maintain cache coherency correctly, resulting in arbitrary memory corruption.
You really do care about not hitting this errata, even on a test/hobby server.
I don't know what CentOS 9 is like, I've never tested or installed it.
Centos 7 is quite stable, but over time it will fall behind, it only receives security updates.
To be able to install version 9 of Red Hat, Rocky Linux, CentOS, AlmaLinux, Oracle Linux, etc. ( Red Hat based OS ) you can use v8 templates.
For example, I use Rocky Linux 8 templates for VMs with Rocky Linux 9, but I also used Red Hat 8 template and it's ok.
@olivierlambert For now I am going to script it with 'xe vm-export" command. Also it would be good to be able to export to the server itself, instead of downloading to the client. My VMs are over 500Gigs
First alpha next week probably. Also consider 8.3 as a base for new stuff, not directly embedding a lot of new things for the official release 🙂 But since it won't be an LTS, it will be easier to make changes there!
As far as I understand it, this will give us multiple tcp streams over an LACP link, truely aggregating traffic on multiple interfaces. (Until now, you needed to use iSCSI multipathing for this, which isnt able to thin provision.).
You're neigher right nor wrong: LACP is more complex than just bundling NICs and in many cases it will NOT give you any benefit.
Why? Simple: For that you need to have NFS using multiple ports but stay with same MAC and IP, which means that your LACP balancing algo needs to be set (and support) L4.
Many just go L2 or L3 (means they decide on MAC or IP-Address).
As a quick search didn't answer me: If it even doesn't go that 'passive range' multiple port way: In typical environments it won't help you at all with LACP.
