Hi All,

I've got a 3 node cluster with HA. All three nodes are HP ProLiant DL360 G5
systems with Dual Processor, each with 16gb ram. They have shared NFS
storage via a FreeNAS system.

On the systems, Proxmox is installed onto a RAID1 on the local system. The
systems were 2.0 initially and upgraded to 2.1 via apt-get.

The CPU are:
root at homer:/var/log# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 15
model name      : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU            5160  @ 3.00GHz
stepping        : 6
cpu MHz         : 3000.147
cache size      : 4096 KB
physical id     : 0
siblings        : 2
core id         : 0
cpu cores       : 2
apicid          : 0
initial apicid  : 0
fpu             : yes
fpu_exception   : yes
cpuid level     : 10
wp              : yes
flags           : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic mtrr pge mca cmov
pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe syscall nx lm
constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts rep_good aperfmperf pni dtes64 monitor
ds_cpl vmx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm dca lahf_lm dts tpr_shadow
bogomips        : 6000.29
clflush size    : 64
cache_alignment : 64
address sizes   : 36 bits physical, 48 bits virtual
power management:

So here is the skinny:
1. Create new KVM vm.
    -OS Type: Linux 3.x/2.6 kernel (l26)
    -2gb RAM
    -64gb qcow2 drive image, on NFS store. virtio controller
    -ethernet virtio controller
    -centos 6.2 iso
2. Start OS install into vm.
3. About mid-way through the install, the vm randomly shuts down.
   -there is no log entry in the "tasks" area of the gui.

I'm not exactly sure where i should look to get to the bottom of this. any
insight is appreciated. :)
