    Hey, I'm wondering if it's possible to mount part of a volume to a hard drive in a VM. I have a hard drive that I'd like to give every VM a portion of (~50GB), and I'd like to make it appear as a drive to be compatible with all OSes. If this is possible, please let me know.

    Simply install LVM on that harddisk. Then you can use it as normal storage and assign parts to the VMs.
     
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
