[Xen-users] Attaching dom0 external USB HD to domU


I have an external USB 3.0 hard disk connected to my dom0 physical
server. Now I would like the whole disk to be available in a specific
domU. My conclusion is that there are 3 possible ways to configure
that with the xl.cfg file of the domU: using usb, using pci
passthrough and using the disk.

The easiest of all 3 seems to be to simply add an extra entry in the
disk [] parameter such as:


/dev/sdf is the device name of my USB external storage on the dom0 and
would be available as xvdb on my domU.

Would this work? or is it not recommended and I should rather use the
usb config for that purpose?
