How to mount a CDROM on a Xen guest virtual machine? I tried adding this to the disk array with no success


1 Answer 1


Under xen 3.0.2 I did successfully this:

xm block-attach etch2 file://etc/xen/grml_1.1.iso /dev/sdd r

In domU I could see the device with fdisk -l and mount /dev/sdd as usual.
