Description of problem:
I tried exporting a whole disk (/dev/sdb) to guest but virt-manager does not
allow that until and unless one partitions the disk (create volumes).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.32-193.el6.x86_64.debug #1 SMP Mon Aug 29 11:43:10 EDT 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure have the second disk /dev/sdb, no partition on this disk.
2. Format this disk with type ext3.
3. Add a new storage pool by vitr-manager GUI
choose type "disk:Pysical Disk Device"
4. Click Forward, choose "/dev/sdb" for Source Path.
5. Click Finish button.
Error creating pool: Could not start storage pool: cannot open volume '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory
New storage pool can be added successfully
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
I assume this is a libvirt issue, reassigning
I can't reproduce on f23, so closing
