Re: vkernel crash?
Unfortunately this is a laptop with no serial - i was very curious when i
read about vkernels as a more general replacement for jails so installed
dfly on the first free machine i could lay my hands on. I will set up
another box with a serial console and kernel config as you suggest to try
to provide some useful feedback.
i have continued to try to reproduce the error - even with a fair
amount of network and disk io things were fine.
i assume no chance in the future of net booting a vkernel from iscsi san
or will "ANVIL" provide a cleaner solution to having the vkernel/vmachine
filesystem available should the actual machine running it die and have
some monitoring solution to start the virtual machine on another box?

There could be something else going on. Well, keep an eye on it.
If you have the system setup to generate a kernel core you could
try building a kernel with:
Another option if you have a second machine is to set up a serial console
with a null modem cable (which is how I have my test box setup), so you
can see the crash no matter what graphics mode you are in.
