Hp-vm sharing of DVD results error.

hpvmdevmgmt -m gdev:dev:attr:SHARE=YES
Failed to modify device 'dev' attribute 'SHARE' to value 'YES'.
hpvmdevmgmt: Unable to continue.

So first i need to chnage as SHARED.
Now changed the attr as SHARE=YES,
bit when try to modify on guest it says:

gedhpvm1 /var/opt/hpvm/common # hpvmmodify -P gethpvm1 -a dvd:avio_stor::disk:/dev/rdsk/c1t0d0
hpvmmodify: ERROR (gethpvm1): Duplicate backing device '/dev/rdsk/c1t0d0'.
hpvmmodify: ERROR (gethpvm1): Unable to add device '/dev/rdsk/c1t0d0'.
hpvmmodify: Unable to create device dvd:avio_stor::disk:/dev/rdsk/c1t0d0.
hpvmmodify: Unable to modify the guest.

Thanks

Re: Hp-vm sharing of DVD results error.

You need to substitute "dev" in this line

hpvmdevmgmt -m gdev:dev:attr:SHARE=YES

e.g. by /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0

Hope this helps!

Re: Hp-vm sharing of DVD results error.

First make the device shared, then assign it to the guests.

Hope this helps!
