Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have two Citrix XenServers in a pool. Both have a NIC for Management, a NIC for the SAN and a NIC for the VMs to connect to the network. The NIC for the VMs (eth3) has multiple networks configured for the VMs with different VLAN IDs.

This has been working well for 2 years. Recently, I started getting dropped pings to the various VMs which I'm monitoring.

When this has happened, I immediately checked the VMs and couldn't see anything work. For example, one of those VM is running Windows 2008 and I had an RDP session. I got the alert and alt-tab'ed to my RDP session and it was fine.

One time, the outage lasted several minutes. But all other 5-6 times in the last 3 weeks, the outage was so quick I couldn't check anything while it was down.

I do have messages from the software running on some of those VMs that there was a network outage - i.e. the software running on VM1 was not able to connect to the database on VM2.

I looked at VM1 network adapter in Windows and it reports having been up for 500+ days. So it did not get a "link down" event.

I checked my switch to which the XenServers are connected to and I don't see anything there.

I have DVS Controller installed (but I may have done some setup wrong on this - but it has been like this for 2 years so...) and today I noticed this message shows up just before the time I get the alerts:

Established control channel for network on server 'xen1'

Then, I, I get multiple events such as:

'server1' now using IP 10.5.4.1 with interface 'mac-address'. 'server1' added interface 'mac-address' to network 'Vlan640' on server 'xen1'

It repeats those 2 entries for every VMs on xen1.

On the XenServer host, in /var/log/messages, I find the following lines (there are more but that is what seems relevant):
