Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 246441
can not specify the type of driver device
Last modified: 2008-02-20 23:38:37 EST
Description of problem:
I would like to set the type of driver device(aio/sync ...etc),
when I install the guest domain.
But there is no option on virt-install, so I can not specify any
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virtinst 0.103.0(changeset 205)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install the guest domain
# virt-install ...
We can not specify the type of driver device.
We can specify the type of driver device.
I attached the patch that I added the option to choose the
type of driver device.
--drvtype=DRVTYPE Type of driver device, e.g. 'aio', 'qcow', 'vmdk',
Created attachment 158326 [details]
added the option
Having driver as a command line option seems useful, but virt-install prompting
the user for a driver on a "guided" install is not the best idea: the info is
not needed as we can choose a working default, and it is probably too advanced
for most people using the guided install.
Could you remove that portion of the patch, and post it to
email@example.com for a wider audience? Thanks!
Many thanks for reviewing this BZ.
I had already posted it, and I understood the option which I added was not
really useful option, because its only used by Xen paravirt.
c.f. the thread at:
And, it will be too advanced for installing as you said.
So, could you close this BZ ?
Ah sorry, must have missed when that patch came by on the list. Thanks for the
pointer, closing this as WONTFIX.
