It's hard to believe that they didn't catch a completely broken driver during QA so my hypothesis is that maybe the new Virtio driver is incompatible only with the older Kernel of CentOS 6 and that this wasn't properly tested. To verify this one could check if the same thing happens on a CentOS 7 Host but at the moment I'm to busy the check this. Regards, Dennis

Regrettably Microsoft has picked up the habbit of giving out buggy patches.
Sysadmins are becoming betatesters.

I wish I could test it but haven't got no C7 host yet.

Hope you didn't got bitten too hard and thanks for the heads -up.
