Switching to libvirt managed QEMU instances

This page gives tips for migrating from standalone QEMU instances, over to managed libvirt instances.

Command line argument equivalence

Monitor command equivalence

change hdc /some/path/cdimage.iso

From the command line

 virsh block-attach --type cdrom --mode readonly myguest /some/path/cdimage.iso hdc

Or from an API call, pass the following XML

 <disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
    <source file='/some/path/cdimage.iso'/>
    <target dev='hcd'/>
    <readonly/>
 </disk>
