Sebastien, he's trying to attach to an iSCSI LUN which is different.  If available, XenCenter
is the easiest way to do it otherwise it _can_ be done through the xe commands but it's a
bit more involved.

Mike, I am out of my comfort zone here, but I believe you need to define a storage repository
on your xen host:

In devcloud Rohit did it like this:

xe sr-create host-uuid=$hostuuid name-label=local-storage shared=false type=file device-config:location=/opt/storage/primary
