I thought if hot-add wasn't working I'd be able to just add it to my .xml file and redefine the domain with virsh, relevent sections

    <disk type='block' device='disk'>
      <driver name='phy'/>
      <source dev='/dev/vgr1/wintest2'/>
      <target dev='hda'/>
    <disk type='block' device='disk'>
      <driver name='phy'/>
      <source dev='/dev/vgr5/junk'/>
      <target dev='hdb' bus='ide'/>
    <disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
      <driver name='file'/>
      <source file='/mnt/repo/iso/w2k3_32.iso'/>
      <target dev='hdc'/>

But the new "hdb" device still doesn't show up in Disk Management, it does show in Device Manager, but only named as "xen vbd device #832"
