Hi

I just installed a new RAID1 array/logical drive into our XenCenter server running version 4.1.  However it does not show in the local storage area.

What else do I need to do for the extra space to be seen so I can add some VMs to it?

Thanks

What OS does it run?
Is Xcenter running on a physical server?
If it's Windows, did you check Disk Management in Computer Management yet? You may see the blank space under disk management and you have to create a partition on it.

Hmm...you weren't on the right track.

XenCenter 4.1 is a linux based OS in itself and VMs are created on top of it.  The storage that I added via the HP RAID config utility during boot wasn't seen by XenCenter 4.1.  

The basic command I ended up using was:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
xe sr-create host-uuid=<VALID_UUID> content-type=user \
name-label="Example Local LVM SR" shared=false \
device-config:device=/dev/sdb type=lvm
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apparently XenCenter 5.0 allows you to add storage via the GUI.

Thanks for the reply though.
