That is rather odd - My server VMs are all 25GB or bigger and are as
happy as a clam. Are you reserving all of the space for the disk in
advance or allowing it to grow dynamically?

In my case, I have a single disk file (I find 2GB chunks a pain to
track / move around, and they're really not needed with the newer file
systems). I also usually tend to set them as growable as opposed to
reserving the space in advance. I use that as a crude form of thin
provisioning.

Fortunately, I have not had to reboot servers very often for the
configuration problem. At this point I see it crop up on occasion after
a kernel upgrade, where I'm already going to reboot the box anyway.
Booting it twice at that stage has been more of an annoying
inconvenience than anything else.

Glad the firewall port fix helped!

Cheers,

Chris
