- Unable to boot KVM VPS with IDE driver in SolusVM
Upon pushing the SolusVM > Virtual Servers > VPS > Reboot (Debug) button the following error is shown:
SVM_ERROR: error: Failed to create domain from /home/kvm/kvm101/kvm101.xml
error: unsupported configuration: Only a single IDE controller is supported for this machine type
- Three or more secondary disks are added to a VPS
There is a KVM limitation for the IDE devices - it is limited to a maximum of four virtualized (emulated) IDE devices per guest virtual machine: the main disk, CD-Rom, and two additional disks.
- Log in to the SolusVM admin panel.
- Enable the Virtio Driver instead of IDE in SolusVM > Virtual Servers > VPS > Settings > General > Disk Driver > Virtio:
Note: for Windows VPSs make sure the Virtio Driver is installed inside the VPS.
