Re: [libvirt] VolumeCreateXML "XML" description for ESX



The XML i am trying to use is "<volume><name>test_vm.vmdk</name><key></key><allocation>0</allocation><capacity unit='G'>2</capacity></volume>"

or

"<volume><name>test_vm.vmdk</name><directory>test_vm<file>test_vm.vmdk</file></directory><key></key><allocation>0</allocation><capacity unit='G'>2</capacity></volume>"

and if i added directory and file directive i am still getting the same error, i am not sure if i am doing something wrong or it is a bug , can someone please advice me what is the correct XML structure for creating volume using the ESX driver ?

Thank You
Regards,
Sherif

Matthias, sounds like there's a bug or we need to update the docs?
