Dynamic Storage Technology (DST) for Open Enterprise Server (OES) 2015 SP1 works similarly on a native hardware environment and on a virtual machine, with the following caveats:
DST supports up to 16 shadow volumes and up to 16 ShadowFS volumes in a virtualized guest server environment.
DST is not supported for use in the virtualization host server environment.
Limits for the number of devices assigned to a virtual machine:
Para-virtualized: 16 devices
Fully virtualized: 4 devices
