The vSMP Freefoundation Software is working fine in our server. We have added parameters “maxcpus=1 vga=normal xdriver=vesa” in the GRUB. But it is getting stuck in the booting process. The screenshot link for the following issue is posted below:-
The system and the software details are as follows:-
Two IBM Servers Model- IBM system nx 3650 M2
CPU cores- 4 CPU x 2.133GHz
Processor type- Intel Xeon cpu E5506@2.133GHz
RAM- 52 GB
OS- RHEL Workstation 6.4 64 bit
Could you boot the OS without vSMP Foundation Free, add ” intel_iommu=off” to the kernel command line (in grub) and reboot using vSMP Foundation Free?
BTW – you do not need to add “maxcpus=1” in this version.
Thanks for sharing this file. I would also like to ask you to run our data gathering utility (getnfo.sh) on the server.
1. download the utility from http://www.scalemp.com/downloads/getinfo/getinfo.sh
2. boot the system (without vSMP Foundation Free) and execute as root “getnfo.sh -s”
3. share the resulted files with us.
From the clip it appears that you added the intel_iommu=off in the wrong line.
This need to be in the “module /vmlinuz…” line, not int the “kernel /tboot.gz” line – as the intel_iommu flag need to be parsed by the linux kernel (rather than tboot).
could you configure correctly and test again?
Thanks for the help. The issue is now solved. It is working fine after adding line intel_iommu=off in the “module /vmlinuz…”. So i am sending you the link of the result that i got from “getinfo.sh -s”(with vSMP Foundation Free)
