I have few Linux (RHEL 5.x / Centos 5.x) boxes running on KVMs, on which I used to attach and detach disks on the fly. Now the problem with EL5 versions are, when we add a disk, initially it will be marked as /dev/sdb. When I remove it and re-attach the disk again it is pointing to /dev/sdc instead of /dev/sdb again, if I repeat the process the disks will be /dev/sdd.. /dev/sde.. so on.
I want the disk always to attach to the /dev/sdb. How to I achieve this ?
I googled a lot and it took me no where :(.
Any help on this will be appreciated !
