MS Virtual Machines able to use physical hard drives, instead of virtuals?
Posted on 2008-10-18
I've been looking for a while on this one, but can't seem to find any decent information (which leads me to believe what I'm trying to accomplish here isn't possible).
Basically, is it possible to have a virtualized machine (running under MS Virtual Server 2k5 R2 SP1) use host level hardware, instead of making a software virtual hard drive that sits somewhere?
What I'd like to do, is that I have a scsi raid array - that I'd like to give the whole thing to one of my virtual machines, and not have to put a vhd inside the raid. If you know what I mean.
Of course, this would be for the virtual machine's secondary drive, as I've already got it built using a vhd for the os.
Sorry if this question is rambled, but just trying to find out information on the topic.
Thanks for always helping.
