    How to mount *.qcow2 image.


    Hi folks,

    KVM
    host - Debian 5.0

    I need to mount kvm/qemu *.qcow2 image reading its content. I can't figure out the type of file "-t"

    # mount -t mke2fs -o loop VM/vm30.qcow2 /mnt
    # mount -t e2fs -o loop VM/vm30.qcow2 /mnt
    # mount -o loop VM/vm30.qcow2 /mnt
    # mount -t ext3 -o loop VM/vm30.qcow2 /mnt
    # mount -t ext2 -o loop VM/vm30.qcow2 /mnt

    None of them can work. Please help TIA

    B.R.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    It is probably not mountable in the normal sense, but only by the virtual machine manager.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
