Ok, thanks to both you and Christian for the explanations.
I think i understand better now. So essentially the hypervisor
assumes the OSInstance speaks L3 (but not exactly L2);->
Yep, that would be a little challenging .. I have other suggestions
on resolving some of this but i sympathize with the process you have to
go through so i wont burden you with it;-> I think the patch that was in
is good nuf a solution.

BTW, How did this work out in other OSes you mentioned?
For something as expensive as these beasts i have heard are, I
have to say i am a little suprised by this "deficiency".

cheers,
jamal
