comment FreeBSD, VirtIO, and Virtualbox
What's wrong with the configuration? We've run FreeBSD since v4 and ZFS for maybe 2-3 years now (and have tripled the size of our pool since then). Performance is quite good, and VirtualBox with win2k3 guest and ~10 remote users works well for us. What kind of trouble should I be on the look out for?

So that fixed the problem?

Michael, thanks for letting me know. This is a non-IT small business (2 locations, ~20 users in all) and the FreeBSD/Virtualbox setup works quite well for. It is a setup and situation that is admittedly very different from companies with hundreds or more of employees! Thanks for your explanation your answer.

Thanks very much for the answer. Just to make sure I understand correctly, I can install the virtio drivers in the Windows Server guest without any special support at all (or any modifications) in the host operating system?

Thanks for the reference--perhaps I will have better luck there. I don't get the -1 downvote as this question does involve server software, hardware, and virtualization.

Yes, sorry, I thought that was implicit in my question. I would like to get the performance gains from using VirtIO for both network and disk eumlation in Virtualbox. I'm not sure if this is possible with FreeBSD as the host system (I'm having trouble finding any documentation). Does that make sense?
