How to Add a Virtual Disk

  1. Export the virtual disk back end from a service domain.
    ldm add-vdsdev [-fq] [options={ro,slice,excl}] [mpgroup=mpgroup] \
    backend volume-name@service-name
  2. Assign the back end to a guest domain.
    ldm add-vdisk [timeout=seconds] [id=disk-id] disk-name volume-name@service-name domain-name

    You can specify a custom ID of a new virtual disk device by setting the id property. By default, ID values are automatically generated, so set this property if you need to match an existing device name in the OS. See Virtual Disk Identifier and Device Name.

    Note - A back end is actually exported from the service domain and assigned to the guest domain when the guest domain (domain-name) is bound.
