OLVM: Unable to Direct Attach Disk to a VM - Domain Already Contains a Disk With That Address (Doc ID 2673317.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 28, 2022

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 7.8 and later
Linux x86-64


On : Oracle Linux 7.8 version, Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager(OLVM) 4.3.6

When hot-adding a new 7th virtioSCSI disk (iSCSI or FC LUN) to a running Virtual Machine, OLVM will create the disk but will fail to attach it to the running VM.
OLVM Web Interface will not give an error, but the disk will stay with a Red Icon and will not be attached to the VM.

Error in the OLVM engine.log:
