Re: NetBSD SMP in VMWare

Dear NetBSD:ers,

I am writing to ask for some ideas. I am struggling with a NetBSD virtual
machine that is running at a customer of mine in VMWare - not sure if it's ESX
or ESXi.

The VM has been assigned several CPU cores, but it NetBSD only recognises one.
It's running a generic kernel and identical setups works fine on hardware. I
think I've exhausted what google can tell me at this point and I've run out of
ideas myself.

Does anyone have any ideas or similar experiences?

Thankful for any input.

Kind Regards,

Hi Carl,

I'm not sure why that would be. I have a client system on hand which is running 5.0.1 on a recent build of ESXi and it reports both CPU's. [1]

What NetBSD version are you running? While I don't expect it to be a factor, knowing the ESX[i] version might help.
