Here you have hda, hdb and hdd.

But here it seems to create hda, hdb and hdc. I'm not sure what that is
all about, but it seems odd. Can you try giving hda/b/c in your config?

Other than that I'm not seeing anything strange about your logs. Can you
post the output of "xenstore-ls -fp" while the problematic domain is
running please.

If you only care about PV access to /dev/sd{a,b} (as opposed to emulated
IDE) then you could also try putting them on xvde and xvdf (out of the
say of the IDE stuff). That might help.

Does the 1 (additional) disk case work regardless of whether you use sda
or sdb?
