Red Hat Virtualization limitations
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Virtualization has limits on the number of virtual devices available due to the virtualization software. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.2 limitations:
A maximum of four file-based virtual block devices.
This limit is only applicable for Fully Virtualized guests since it uses IDE emulation and not for para-virtualized guests.
For paravirtualized guests the limit was 16 in 5.2 which has been raised in 5.3. So the above statement should be mentioned to be specific to Fully virtualized guest.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Fixed in build 60. This limit is for other types as well. The expanded limitations section should be live in a few days.
