OVM 3.0 installation xen.gz hang fix


My Supermicro boxes all hung up when the installer booted. Recently there was a post about a fix for this issue on the Oracle OTN forums. To be honest, it’s almost a spam post, anyway. Follow the link in there.

Short version: You must disable IPMI serial forwarding if you have this issue. Some BIOSses apparently remap the serial port on the fly and this is whats causing the problem.
