Using KVM to create Virtual Machines -- how to access CD drive on local machine
Posted on 2013-05-25
I'm using KVM on CentOS to create Virtual machines and it's working very well.
I'm connecting to those VM's using remote desktop on my local PC, actually it's a Mac running remote desktop but the same difference.
I want/need to be able to install something on the VM from a CD. But if I put the CD into my local machine running remote desktop, it's not showing up on the desktop.
I checked the settings for Remote Desktop and it doesn't seem to have an option to mount the CD from the client machine (my mac). Maybe this is different if I was using PC as the client, I don't know.
But my basic question is, can I use the CD/DVD player on the client that is connecting to a VM to mount the contents of the CD/DVD on the VM?
