This document (7000594) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Further, attempting to use the "add storage device" functions in SLES 10 SP2 may be unpredictable. Specifically, it has been noted that:
- A failure message may appear, however when the machine is rebooted the new device is added
- Multiple attempts to add the a disk may result in virtual disks pointed at the same disk. This may prevent the DomU from booting
- Failures are sporadic and unpredictable. Depending on the guest, it may or may not work
Please see the documentation for instructions on using command line utilities to create and/or add disks to DomU's.
