OpenXenManager is spotty at best.  If you have the option available of a windows workstation
then run XenCenter otherwise the xe commands are your best bet.

Hi guys,

Yeah, I'm trying to use OpenXenManager, but am seeing mixed results.
 Sometimes it just crashes.

It did seem to attach my iSCSI storage, though, but does not show it from
the GUI (I can see it in Xen directly).

Weird
