  2. Running more than two DHCP servers when attempting to boot a VM from a network, can cause the VM to incorrectly wait for a reply from the DHCP server and eventually time out.
  3. Attempting to boot VMs from a network where the boot files are hosted on a server other than the DHCP server, can cause the VM boot to fail. Continue reading “Hotfix XS602E010 for XenServer 6.0.2”
