Hello List,

i just set up a iscsi Server and installed XCP in a 2nd machine.

I now connected XCP in the GUI with my iSCI Server and said "YES" to
format my isci target. (i guess its xe sr-create ... on the command

My question is now: What is it now actally exactly doing here? How is
it formated or partitioned? I read something about LVM?

I configured my isci server to serve /dev/sdb1.

sr-create for LVM-based SRs simply dd if=/dev/zero on the first 100Mb of the target. If you do not want to loose your data - use sr-introduce. If you already done sr-create, you lost your data. Not completely, but you'll need a very high level professional service to recover them.
