Subject RE: Using Direct Fiber attached storage
Date Tue, 26 Jun 2012 19:45:24 GMT
We are doing multipath iSCSI but it was more or less the same process.  You would add the storage
repo to your XenServer(s) first, then tell CS to use a preSetup storage repo and specify the
name of the SR you created.  Although it may be possible, I would recommend against putting
spaces in the SR name, otherwise it should be fine.  It's how FC storage is recommended to
be mounted with CloudStack and XenServer.

Subject: Using Direct Fiber attached storage

I posted this on the forum a few days ago, but haven't gotten any replies, so please forgive
the double post.

As odd and strange as this may be, our environment isn't really built out to use nfs or iscsi,
but we have a very extensive fiber network. We've traditionally used this for our storage
in our current VM environment. We are re-architecting our environment using cloudstack but
would really like to continue to use the direct fiber attached storage. Is it possible? We've
thought about using some hacktastic ways to trick the system into thinking it's using nfs,
but really be over san...again hacktastic. I noticed the option to add Pre-Setup storage.
Would we be able to go add the storage to the Xenserver directly, then take and add that to
CS? Or is there another way to use direct fiber attached storage without going the local disk
route and thus loosing the HA/live-migration features?
