Subject Re: CloudStack and XenServer 6.0.2 - stray snapshots on primary storage

Thanks for the feedback Nik.

>From looking at the lvm chain, yep, we're running into that too, but I
think ours is a little worse. They're still there in the GUI. CloudStack
(or XenServer) is leaving them there.

The other day I went through and deleted them manually. The auto-coalesce
process kicked in and saved a bunch of space, but the next round of
CloudStack snapshots left them on XenServer primary storage.

It's a huge PITA.
