Citrix Xenserver

I have added a new hard disk to my citrix xenserver (500GB).
I created a file system (mkfs command) and it is completed. The new partition is sdb.

I then added the same to fstab entries.

Later when I tried to add it as a new Storage in xenserver (xe sr-create command)
it says  "The storage is already in use". I have give the name as "Local Storage 2"

How to rectify this.

the error was "The SR operation cannot be performed because a device underlying the SR is in use by the host."
