I used the domu kernel built from stable/2.6.32.x git branch. It seems only
accept xvdX. Any workaround you can offer to rename xvdX to sdX? Otherwise, we
might need to change our codes.
Thanks in advance

http://wiki.xensource.com/xenwiki/XenParavirtOps says disk devices on domu are
always /dev/xvdX. And I failed when I try to map a raw disk to domu with the
name /dev/sdb. The line ‘phy:sdb,sdb,w’ in domu config file doesn’t take
effect. Actually I found
a raw disk named /dev/xvdf on the domu.
Anybody got any idea why xen4 put such restriction? How to map to other names
such as /dev/sdb on domu?
Maverick (10.10) will accept sdX from the xm config. Maybe Natty will too, but
not Lucid or Karmic, which want xvdX.
