Default How to attach SSD to a VM with vmd

Hi,

I'm thinking about creating a Linux a virtual machine under OpenBSD with vmd to use as my NAS.
I will need software that is not available on OpenBSD (like: PLEX) and I think putting the NAS in a VM will provide isolation which gives more security.

Now the question is: How do I attach a physical hard drive or SSD to be directly (and maybe exclusively) used by the Linux guest OS? I haven't seen any option for this in vmd or vmctl.

I hope it's possible without using qemu.

Hello, and welcome!

This is not a possibility at present. There is no "pass-through" of any physical device under vmm(4). For virtual disks, only raw or qcow2 image files are currently possible to provision.

Yes, this is what I suspected.
Thank you for confirming.
