oVirt isn't an OS manager, it is a hardware manager. It manages the virtual task of plugging a hard drive in.

The OS then needs to manage its hardware within the virtual machine. You manage the OS.

You may set up templates and scripts that automate and roll this stuff out for you in future.

I don't know of any hypervisor that takes care of in-OS management for you apart from heavily scripted/automated systems usually found in the big cloud providers like AWS.

Hi Joseph.

Thanks to your answer, I perfectly know Linux disk management, but I thought it was to Ovirt to manage all attached disk.

I'm new to Ovirt ecosystem.

Thanks again.

Like a normal hard-disk, you will need to format it - currently it is just a 'physical' device (/dev/vdb), you'll need to create a partition table, then a partition, then format that partition to a filesystem. This is not anything specific with oVirt or VM's - just general harddrive management.

Hi,

I'm facing a virtual disk behavior I don't understand.


Currently my VMs are spun up with a Boot disk of 25GB and an additional disk of 215/45/65 GB depending.

When logged to the webui I see the two disks, but when I ssh to VM we only see the primary boot disk, the other one can't get a UUID and then cannot and is not mounted

I also noticed in the webui the second disk doesn't have a logical name as you can see in the screenshot.

Pleas can someone explain this behavior please?

Here is my disk management commands outputs

[root@fp-gpu-node3 centos]# fdisk -l
