we recently someone approached us to look at the possibility to run
FreeBSD 5 under VMware ESX server, since they had some machines running
with 4 allready they wanted to test out the newer versions. But it
seems while 4.10 and earlier boots fine 5.2.1 and 5.3-BETA-1 both
crashes a terrible death.
When booting with verbose logging it stops when doing something with
bt0 using strict something, then it goes to
alot of errors like these
bt: ccb 0xd9688080 - error 4 ocured. btstat = 11, sdstat = 0
then ioapic0: routing ... down to
ioapic0: routing intpin 9 (ISA IRQ 9) to cluster 0
and then crash.
On a normal boot it crashes at
Waiting 15 seconds for SCSI devices to Settle
Any idea how to workaround this or are they stuck on FreeBSD 4 for now?
