Oracle VM server release 2.1.2
I'm getting an error when I want to add a disk on OVM. There are all ready 16 disks (a-p), but gets error on 17th (p) Error: ('cd81da11-4f92-0eeb-b6b2-d2f27521246f', 'VM_metrics')
Here is the config file :
name = "***o2db01"
memory = "8192"
disk = [ 'phy:/dev/mapper/mpath17,xvda,w',
Is there a limit on the amount of disks that can be added?
yes in OVM 2.1.2 there was a bug, allowing only 16 xvd* devices.
Workaround is to use /dev/sd* as device.
Better it would be to upgrade to OVM 2.2 where this is solved.
(Or even 3.0, but this is a major task).
