Is it possible for Xen itself to detect the preexisting partitions (which we have created from domain 0) on the device we are trying to connect. Something like:

[phy:/dev/sda,/dev/hda, 'w'], just mapping some device to a virtual physical device on guest. The ghuest OS be able to detect the partitions drawn on /dev/sda from domain 0 I tried but does't seem to work.


a. The device would appear as /dev/hda0 and not as /dev/hda.
b. fdisk even shows the partitions on the /dev/hda0, but /dev file system
doesn't have any corresponding devices.

It does seem to find the first partition, just doesnt scan for any others.

I'd like to be able to assign whole disks to domU's and have domU's handle partitioning particularly so that Linux extX fs labels aren't visible to the dom0. And to simplify management of disks.

If you find a solution and become attached to it, the solution may become
your next problem.
