I have created 2 lvm2 as partitions and I want to use them for the virtualization, when I use the yast > virtualization > create virtual machine > then when u get to the summary window in the disk section i want to add one of my partition but i wont accept, this my partiont:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 51G 8.4G 42G 17% /
udev 466M 176K 466M 1% /dev
/dev/sda2 21G 5.4G 15G 27% /home
6.0G 33M 6.0G 1% /system/host1
2.0G 33M 2.0G 2% /system/host2

Pretty much I want to put one of the last 2 partitions to the virtual host

Haven't done anything with virtualization, but have you tried using the device /dev/system/host2 instead of /dev/mapper/system-host2. This is most likely what your actual logical volume is. You can verify by doing a vgdisplay system and look for the logical volume.


# df -h /ts2
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
1.4T 788G 564G 59% /ts2
# lvdisplay /dev/mapper/hou204cm-ts2
Volume group "mapper" not found
# lvdisplay /dev/hou204cm/ts2
--- Logical volume ---
LV Name /dev/hou204cm/ts2 <----real lvol name
VG Name hou204cm
LV UUID 000000-0000-0000-0000-0000-0000-00000a
LV Write Access read/write
LV Status available
