Adding a Local Storage Repository to a Citrix XenServer

삽자루 | 2012.02.25 16:18 | 조회 13613

I was recently involved in a series of stress tests to understand how many Citrix XenDesktop Windows7 instances could be crammed into a particular hardware solution.  Initially the solution used shared storage for all VDI-related needs (including a mix of SSD and SAS 15K).
Once these tests were complete the hardware stack was altered by adding direct attached storage (DAS) to the blades.
For the

Ensure that the physical server sees the disk; to list the visible disks:
fdisk -l | more
Find the new disk, for this example it is found at /dev/cciss/c0d0, and then create a new partition on the disk:
fdisk /dev/cciss/c0d0

New partition




Partition ID


Starting block


Ending block


Write changes and exit


Create a physical volume with the new partition

pvcreate /dev/cciss/c0d0p1

Create a volume great (in this case named, “VG-DAS”) with the new partition

vgcreate VG-DAS /dev/cciss/c0d0p1

Format the partition ext3

/sbin/mkfs.ext3 /dev/cciss/c0d0p1

Find the host ID for the XenServer in question

xe host-list | more

Copy the UUID to notepad, e.g. 3a358d8b-1034-44bc-851c-4f08bd0014e1

Find the ID of the new partition
ls -l /dev/disk/by-id | more
Find the disk (e.g. c0d0p1) and copy the string to notepad, e.g. cciss-3600508b100104a39535a543030550000-part1
Create the storage repository using your unique UUID and Disk ID

xe sr-create content-type="localSR" host-uuid=a83d9760-0edd-461d-8e75-ab07ffe44d9c type=lvm device-config:device=/dev/disk/by-id/cciss-3600508b100104a39535a543035430000-part1 name-label="DAS_SR"
