Can I configure a virtual disk in RHV to appear as SSD (non-rotational)?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • A VM running in RHV sees its virtual disks as rotational: /sys/block/<device-name>/queue/rotational = 1
  • As the VM runs ODF, we want to present the disks as SSD.


  • Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) 4.4 SP1
