Re: [Xen-API] Storage Repository FileSR on ZFS won't work - Linux

Thanks Germano,

I'm running latest master branch taken from here:
git clone git://github.com/xenserver/buildroot.git
as per:

If you could recommend me any good working branch I might be keen to try it.

btw. slightly off topic...
I've to admit that during last days I've run into so many issues that almost gave up using Xen. But on the other hand I'm not sure if KVM is any better.
For contrary, VirtualBox even if is headed towards desktop user, for couple of VMs as I need at the moment could be a better solution for me... It's sad to get to such conclusions, but given the time I've spent troubleshooting and running from issue to issue... It makes me thinking Xen is more in beta stage than real production one.

Hi Dawid,

Which sm or XS version are you using?
If you are using 6.2 or earlier, yes the fs need to support direct IO.

In the master branch and xs64bit there is code to disable o_direct.

Those changes go hand in hand with corresponding blktap changes.

I'm looking forward for your help in NFS context.

In regards to nosync - I'm happy to give it a try as it's just a test
system now but I'd prefer to find working solution.

I've spent couple of days/evenings already fighting to get Xen working
on Ubuntu with ZFS and I'm close to give up and try KVM. It's way to

I'll still keep trying...
