Mounting host partition on KVM guest
I am fairly new at KVM and virtual machines. I have just recently set up a virtual server (CentOS 6.4) and have a CentOS 6.4 guest on that machine. I have an lvm volume on the host machine that I would like to have the guest access, basically as a mounted drive. However I ONLY want the server and this specific guest to have access to the volume. The Idea being that this will keep my precious data separate from the guest machine and therefore can be moved around, backed up, and switched over to other guests at will and independantly of any specific guest machine, and yet stay secure to whatever guest it is connected to at the time.
Anyway, I have no Idea where to start. I tried making the volume an nfs share, but I feel that isnt very secure, and there has to be a better solution than that.
Any advice is appreciated.
