This post is targeting pvops kernel configuration close to aka Suse 11.3 Xenified kernel. This config by some reasons allows OpenSolaris134/OpenIndiana147 PV Guest obtain IP address pretty stable on systems Xen 4.0.1 & PVOPS like it happens on OpenSuse 11.3 with Xen Hypervisor upgraded up to 4.0.1 and the most recent XenLinux kernel.

PVOPS systems with mentioned drivers hard linked to the kernel have permanent trouble with obtaining IP via DHCP request issued by OSOL/OI_147 PV guest at least through my experience. Actually , only xen-netback module loaded separately from kernel is important. I just tried to change traditional PVOPS config , working perfectly for Linux guests, a bit more then usual a see what happens. The last step obviously requires changing xen-backend.rules.
