Hi everyone,

I am creating VM on Centos as a host and Ubuntu as VM , using KVM and Libvirt manger ..

When i execute following command :

virt-install --connect qemu:///system -n r1u1 -r 2047 --disk vol=rf/r1u1 --disk path=/home/devang/ubuntutest.iso,device=cdrom,bus=ide,perms=ro --vnc --noautoconsole os-type linux --os-variant ubuntujaunty --accelerate

I got Error :

Starting install...
internal error unsupported disk type 'vda'
Domain installation may not have been
successful. If it was, you can restart your domain
by running 'virsh start r1u1'; otherwise, please
restart your installation.

if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: internal error unsupported disk type 'vda'
