I have 7 vm's installed on LVM volumes (5xCentos 6.3, 1xubuntu and
1xfreebsd) All works fine.
Server Centos 6.3 with KVM.
All machines installed from iso images.

qemu-kvm.x86_64                    2:           @updates

Machines installed using command:

virt-install -n test -r 2048 --vcpus=2 --os-variant=rhel6 --accelerate
-v -c /home/iso/c63mini.iso --mac=RANDOM --bridge=br0 --vnc
--vnclisten=w.x.y.z  --disk path=/dev/maszyny/test


UNIX allows me to work smarter, not harder.
