tl;dr: I had to reboot code, the gnucash-win32 build server, and indeed
the whole VM system yesterday. It took a few hours to get everything
shut down, and then several more hours for the system to come back up.
If you think something is still broken please let me know.
I started having issues on one of my VM guest systems (in partcular, a
mail server) where it was failing to properly connect to itself.
Response was being very slow, the VM host had a load of over 15, and
other VM guests were also starting to misbehave. I was also having
issues getting into the VM Admin Interface.
In order to recover I decided to perform a full theraputic reboot of the
complete VM system (which, by the way, had had an uptime over 200 days).
To that end I slowly shut down each VM Guest. The GnuCash Win32 builder
took a long time to shut down (much longer than expected) because it
wanted to install an update.. Yay Windows. I think it took an hour to
Anyways, once everything shut down I rebooted the VM Host, and then
everything came back up. At this point I believe everything back up and
is working correctly. If you see something not working please let me
PS: The VM system does seem to be much more responsive now. Perhaps I
should reboot more often? :)
