Ah, this leads me to my next ?

Do VMs need exclusive access to disk or can I have a common space on the dom0 with multiple domUs accessing it via phy mechanism?

Hi Brian,

Yes. Dom0 uses LVM and passes through LVs to the paravirts. All domUs share a single /usr partition that is mounted read only.


There has never been a problem that I've noticed and I have been doing this since 3.0.2-2. (you can tell by the "hda" disk name :)
