Makes sense. I used to use xvd[x] syntax but when I switched to FC8 as my host some time ago it didn't work so I ended up with sd[x]. I've updated it a few times so I'm sure it probably works now.
Problem is that I have this on a countless number of VM's (plus templates). If that's what it takes, I guess I will need to do it.
I was just hoping there was a simpler way to get around this (like creating a reserved /dev/sda that does nothing or something so that hotplug would skip it.
Actually, is there a way to block specific ones in hotplug? I remember some time ago (probably years now) there was discussion somewhere about setting specific hotplug entries for usb mounts. I didn't follow it to see if there was ever a resolution.
ps: sorry for top post ... OWA

That's probably one of the reasons why Redhat decided to promote the
use of xvda for domU's disks instead of hda or sda :)
Try changing your domU config and fstab to use xvda1, xvda2, etc.
PS: Personally I use hda :P
