How to use "kvm -net smb" option in virt-manager
 
I have been reading about a kvm -net smb option which sound like it might allow simple drive sharing with a Windows VM. Problem is how do I use this option with virt-manager?

If the option is not implemented, you don't do it in virt-manager, and use virsh edit $VMNAME instead. If libvirt doesn't have it implemented, you use a direct qemu-kvm commandline.

'virsh edit Win8' brings up an xml file to edit but where do I put the "-net smb" option?

Couldn't find it here: http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html

guess it's not implemented, ask in libvirt.org mailing lists
