Re: [Xen-users] Heterogeneous XCP 1.6 pool - SOLVED

Hi Neal,

Thank you very much for sharing extlinux.conf -- the error was really there.

I'm using XCP with the MPP driver (Linux Multi-pathing). In that case, the 
default boot is not "label xe", but "label xe-mpp".

Everytime I run "xe host-set-cpu-features" it changes the boot options of "xe" 
and a few others, but does not touch "xe-mpp".

I just copied "cpuid_mask_ecx=0x009ce3bd cpuid_mask_ext_edx=0x28100800" from 
the other regular "xe" and added it to "xe-mpp" and it worked! :)

One caveat, though: I had EDX before ECX on the line above and only the EDX 
register was masked -- so, it looks like the order matters: EAX, EBX, ECX then 

It looks like this behavior should be seen as a bug, although the fix is rather 
easy to be done manually.

Once again, thanks for your help…

Best regards,
Eduardo Bragatto
