This entry is part 10 of 10 in the series LJDT - Linux Just Does That

Have you ever wanted to resize a disk in a VM and wondered how insanely painful that would be? After all, from the old days of platter-based spinning drives in computers (sorry to those of you still living in those days), before SANs with resizable LUNs, file-backed VMs, and other marvels of recent times, disks didn’t magically resize themselves unless it was to get smaller because they were breaking/broken. As a result, OS’s have learned to handle bad sectors by avoiding them, but growing the current, running disk just seems eerie to me every time I want to do it. Apparently I’m old.

KBOYLE explains some little-known details about managing your virtual machines. When you use Yast to “Create Virtual Machines”, it does several things. For example, suppose you create a VM (DomU) called “oes11″. The information you provide is saved in a file: /etc/xen/oes11. That information is also imported into the XenStore where it can be managed. You can then use “Virtual Machine Manager” to make changes to the DomU configuration saved in the XenStore. You can add devices, increase memory etc. but you will notice that none of those changes are reflected in /etc/xen/oes11.1.
