Onto our next problem with trying NCS on OES2. We have a test server
running under vmware ESX 3.5 with current patches of OES2. We were able to
configure cluster servers giving a cluster object and SBD partition -- looks
good so far.

When starting up NCS (/etc/init.d/novell-ncs start), the server very quickly
seems to have a panic and reboot. Not much in /var/log/messages (see
below).

Thoughts? Is it related to being a VMWARE guest?

This is where the server reboots itself so messages after this point are
from the next boot cycle . . .
