Simple really: Instruct qemu to provide the physicalDear list, please CC me on reply, since I am off-list. I have a linux server on which a linux quest is running in a qemu virtual machine. To the server, I attached an external hd enclosure (usb) of 8 disks. 4 of these disks form a btrfs raid which is already formated and full of data. I am now searching for a way to connect the disks to the virtual machine. I already found out, that I can mount the btrfs file system on the server and export the mount point folders to the virtual machine. This approach, however, seem to imply nasty problems with data permission. The files on the btrfs file system do belong to different people, and I want to keep it that way. Since qemu is running as a user process, I do not see how is is possible to get r/w access to the data. What I rather would like to archive is to wire the bare metal disks up to the virtual machine and manage the btrfs filesystem on file-system level from withing the virtual machine. How can this be done? Thanks for your help!
disks as "raw disk images", by simply using their
device names on the host (e.g. /dev/sdk and /dev/sdm)
as the filenames of the disk images on the qemu
command line. Then the guest OS will see those two
physical disks as physical disks with different names,
such as /dev/vdb and /dev/vdc or /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc
depending on the type of virtual hardware you specified
for them on the qemu command line.
