The VDI is not available on Local SR for XenServer

I have a local storage repository that is attached to a raid controller. I have one vm running on it just fine. I went to add a new vm and it gives me this error, The VDI is not available. I tried to delete some other virtual disks and it gives the same error. I am fearful of powering down my current VM or rebooting this XenServer in case I won't be able to get it back up.

What new VM were you adding?  Local template or imported XVA?  Might want you to dig up a more useful error in the system logs, but I need a bit more context to tell you which log to look in.  There actually are useful error messages buried in there, much better than the default stuff they present to the GUI as you see.  

I suspect it's simply unable to create a new VDI for some reason.  I've seen this before, but do need some solid context to point you in the right direction.

OK, I was adding a new VM based of the Windows Server 2008 template, tried 32bit and 64 bit. When that didn't work I then just tried manually creating one and adding a disk, got the same error. I then tried removing a disk and still got the same message. Where might I dig up these error logs as I am only familiar with the GUI Log tab.

OK, let's start with the main log.  Check the file /var/log/xensource.log on the xenserver.  You can find it by going to the console of the server in XenCenter, hitting enter, and typing 'more /var/log/xensource.log'.  In there, around the time you try to create the VDI, there should be several SR commands and hopefully some errors.  Please post anything relevant that would have resulted from the output of that VDI create command.
