QEMU-KVM and number of drives


I use qemu-kvm for virtualization and I have a problem. I can use maximum 2 hard disk drives and only one CDROM drive. Everything above this limit is ignored by QEMU and devices do not appear in /dev. Is there some official limit or is this a bug, but I used versions 1.1 and 0.12 and both behave the same?

Pretty sure that is the limit for QEMU on windows host. If you want you can double check that either by the QEMU docs or it might even show up if you type qemu at command line or maybe qemu --help.

I don't think that should be the limit on Linux hosts but it may that also.

switch to virtio, you are probably using ide, which is limited by design.
