Re: [virt-tools-list] Using more than four CDROMs with virt-manager

Thanks, Cole.  I used virsh edit to edit the XML and it works great.  All I had to do was change the bus from ide to scsi and give each one a unique unit number.

But virt-manager only creates IDE CDROMs, as far as I can tell.  Could I tweak the XML file to add SCSI CDROMs?  I am using kvm 0.12.5 on Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.6, amd64.

virt-manager doesn't currently support creating SCSI CDROM devices. You can
tweak the XML though, you basically want something like:

    <disk type='block' device='cdrom'>
      <target dev='sda' bus='scsi'/>
