I setup various logical volumes for different domains.  When I start a domain, it sets up the root file system  and swap correctly but the actual “/” is the existing logical volume from domain 0.  I’m sure it’s something  simple that I have wrong.


Here is part of the config:


disk = [ 'phy:/dev/VirtualVolume/vir%d,sda1,w' % (vmid), 'phy:/dev/VirtualVolume/virswp%d,sda2,w' % (vmid) ]


root = "/dev/sda1 ro"


I did not notice any part of the installation instructions mentioning disabling /etc/ config file (fstab) and /etc/init scripts.


Is there documentation you can point me to that will explain what I should change in /etc  for the quest domains?
