We are in the process of migrating several stand-alone
server hosts onto a CentOS-6 kvm virtual host. We also
use Webmin to administer our hosts. All of the guests,
without exception, have been cloned brom a prototype guest
using virt-manager. All of the additional VirtIO disks
assigned to some of the guests have been added through
virt-manager as well.
Recently I have encountered a situation with the
development copy of Webmin where I can see an additional
VirtIO disk assigned to one guest instance, but not yet
added to the lvg of that guest, as an unknown device on
different guest. Further, I can see an lv assigned to one
guest instance as an lv on a difference guest.
The webmin author is aware of this problem and is
assiduously trying to determine its cause. My difficulty
is answering the question: How is it even possible for an
application running under a httpd service on one guest to
see anything at all besides the VirtIO storage assigned to
Has anyone else encountered this anomaly?
