Sorry for my fault that I just sent this mail
to xen-devel first.
I am trying to use VHD disk format on
My environment is fedora12+
xen-4.0.1-rc6 + xen-stable/184.108.40.206+libvirt-0.8.3
I success on booting VM in VHD disk
correctly using “xm create VM.cfg” and everything runs alright
Where disk = [
"tap2:vhd:/root/tapdisk/vhd-f12,hda,w"] in VM.cfg
And “vhd-f12” is
a VHD type image file created by vhd-util.
However, when I trying to use virsh dumpxml
to dump guestVM’s xml file, there’s no any disk information in the xml.
On the other hand, I also tried to add the
following part into xml manually and then use “virsh create VM.xml“ to create
<disk type='file' device='disk'>
but guestVM can be started without error
but guestVM cannot get disk device correctly.
If I replace driver name='tap’ to ‘tap2’,
libvirt raise error:
(xend.err 'Error creating domain: Block
device type "tap2" is invalid.')
Is anyone has idea how can I enable vhd
format using libvirt?
Thank very much!
