Re: [libvirt-users] Getting "unknown device type" when attaching NPIV (vHBA) to vm



Thank you for your reply,
I'm still getting hard time to attach the hostdev, I couldn't make it work out of the doc.

I took the address details from:

# ll /sys/bus/scsi/devices/7:*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Feb  8 12:58 /sys/bus/scsi/devices/7:0:0:0 -> ../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/0000:08:00.1/host7/rport-7:0-0/target7:0:0/7:0:0:0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Feb  8 12:58 /sys/bus/scsi/devices/7:0:1:0 -> ../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/0000:08:00.1/host7/rport-7:0-1/target7:0:1/7:0:1:0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Feb  8 12:58 /sys/bus/scsi/devices/7:0:2:0 -> ../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/0000:08:00.1/host7/rport-7:0-2/target7:0:2/7:0:2:0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 Feb  8 12:58 /sys/bus/scsi/devices/7:0:3:0 -> ../../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:03.0/0000:08:00.1/host7/rport-7:0-3/target7:0:3/7:0:3:0

and added them (7:0:3:0) to this base xml in various formats instead of the default zeros:

    <hostdev mode="subsystem" " type="scsi">
      <source>
        <adapter name="scsi_host7"/>
        <address bus="0" target="0" unit="0"/>
      </source>
      <readonly/>
      <address bus="0" controller="0" target="0" type="drive" unit="0"/>
    </hostdev>

Libvirt keeps saying:
" error : virDomainHostdevDefParseXMLSubsys:3091 : XML error: unknown host device source address type 'scsi'"

I still can't figure it out, I still have open questions I can't understand from the docs:

Am I using the right subsystem type? Or maybe I should attach the host HBA PCI (QLogic) directly?
Should I use the host scsi_host or should it be the vHBA created uding libvirt?
How exactly I extract the host address and derives the destination address?

This is not how you attach a hostdev to a domain. You need to be looking at <hostdev/>:
