Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.0.3 to 3.2.3 [Release OVM30 to OVM32]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Solaris 10 guest VMs are restricted to four or fewer block devices, such as disks or CDROM?DVD drives.


Even though the PV drivers are loaded on the Solaris 10 OVM virtual guest, no more than four disks can be defined.  Attempting to add a fifth device produces:
