Following my request below. Can anyone point me in the right direction to
help me debug this?
I'm concerned that once the kernel upgrade bug is fixed I will be forced
onto the new kernel and have two broken servers.

Serious issues with Kernel 2.6.32-279.11.1.el6 on two different servers
If anyone can help I would be most appreciative.
Kernel Version: 2.6.32-279.9.1.el6.i686 (SMP) i686 As a Hyper-V virtual
guest with MS Hyper-V components installed (Linux Integration Services
Version 3.4 for Hyper-V)
At the moment 5107R still has the kernel upgrade bug where a kernel upgrade
does not take effect unless you manually change /boot/grub/grub.conf
So I noticed that Kernel 2.6.32-279.11.1.el6 had been installed and thus I
edited /boot/grub/grub.conf in 3 places to use this new Kernel.
Booting into the Kernel works and the server becomes responsive on the
network for a few seconds then something major crashes and takes the server
The console shows all sorts of strange output but the last two lines are:
[<c052e0a1>] ? sys_read+0x41/0x70
[<c0409a9f>] ? sysenter_do_call+0x12/0x28
A screenshot of the console output is here:
I can't see anything particular in dmesg but if you want to take a look it
Editing /boot/grub/grub.conf to use 2.6.32-279.9.1.el6.i686 (SMP) i686 fixes
the issue so it seems to be something about this new Kernel.
Any ideas where I should start looking?
Thanks in advance
