Hi Paul,
I use Xen 3.4.2 in production on Centos with Windows 2003 server virtual machines using those GPL PV drivers.  I put it into production in March this year I think.

The only stability problems I’ve had has been because my Xen servers are using an NFS root from an at times overloaded NFS server.

 Thanks, Evan.

Subject: [CentOS-virt] Xen version


We are thinking of using CentOS with XEN in production, but we are facing some issues regarding the 3.0.3 version of the xen hypervisor and windows paravirtualization. The drivers we are using are from here (http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenWindowsGplPv). The solution we found is upgrading to xen 3.4.2, using a strange repository (gitco.de<http://gitco.de>), and everything seems to work. Now the question is: would you recomand using the 3.0.3 kernel provided by CentOS in production and searching for other paravirtualization drivers, or go with 3.4.2? Is this version of the hypervisor stable?
