Does RHEV support hot plugging or un-plugging virtual disks for VMs?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Does RHEV have the ability to add or remove storage (disk) while the VM is still running?
  • I would like to see the ability to hotplug additional disks
  • Optionally remove ones that are no longer in use, to a VM without a virtual power-cycle. With RHEV I have to power-cycle the VM to get a new disk added.


  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.1, 3.2
