Re: [Xen-users] blktap2 and qcow2 images

So basically xen only supports physical devices and plain image files as disk back- ends?! To use snapshots one has to use LVM?

That seems pretty thin for something that I thought was a production quality virtualization solution.

A well, I guess I'll go back to virtualbox then.

Thanks for your help Thanos.

38 stands for ENOSYS (you can consult /usr/include/asm-generic/errno-base.h and /usr/include/asm-generic/errno.h for translating error codes). It means that something is not implemented, maybe support for qcow..

No idea.
