SolusVM error error: Failed to create domain from /home/kvm/kvm101/kvm101.xml error: cannot open file '/dev//dev/kvmcontainer/kvm101_img': No such file or directory

error: Failed to create domain from /home/kvm/kvm101/kvm101.xml
error: cannot open file '/dev//dev/kvmcontainer/kvm101_img': No such file or directory

This is caused by what we consider a quark in SolusVM that I helped a client with.

SolusVM has as config for the "LVM volume name" and does not enforce any convention.

Naturally most technical people would use the actual path eg "/dev/kvmcontainer".

However this causes the error above where it ends up using the path like "/dev//dev/kvmcontainer" so it never works.

Just enter the actual name of the LV in SolusVM and not the actual path to fix it.

Really SolusVM should catch this and fix it transparently or force the user to enter the input as it should be.
