Thanks for your reply.

So it sounds like I just need to do a standard XenServer install and not
have to configure anything specific for CS  - is that correct?

In your response to question 3 - "if your going with NFS this isnt
necessary, adding it via the GUI/API as a shared nfs storage should do the
trick." - by GUI do you mean the CS GUI and where do you add the storage?

In what situation would I need to set up a storage repository on the
Xenserver?
