Hello all,

I have a single qcow file. I wish to run multiple domains using using
the same backing qcow file - to save diskspace. I tried using qemu-img
create -b.. But it did not work. I get a QCOW open failed error when
creating a domain. Also, qcow-create didn't work for me. What stupid
mistake am I doing here ? Please help.

Also, I converted a raw image file to a qcow using qemu-img convert.
But id did not work. I suppose qemu-img tool does not work with XEN ?
Please clarify.

Thank you.
warm regards

Balaji Rao
