    I have Solaris 10 x86 VM's running on Parallels for Mac Desktop. Besides the boot disk, I can attach 2 more virtual hard disks using the GUI configuration. Is there another way I can add more disks?

    Thanks!

    We have IDE controller in VM, and limitation thus is 4 devices, one of which is used by CD-ROm
    However you can use NFS share from Mac OS side, if you need place to store data

    John, you are missing SCSI

    You may use 15 SCSI interfaces for Hard Drives and for CD/DVD-ROMs.

    Are the SCSI interfaces available starting on Parallels 4.0? Or are they available on 3.0 if the hosting computer has a SCSI interface?

    Yes, in Parallels Desktop 4.0 a virtual machine can be booted from SCSI, in the version 3 it wasn't possible
