Re: [Xen-users] XCP storage

Hi Jon,

I have setup XCP using the install .iso and have been trying to do an install 
over http, this has failed miserably each time. So now I want to just carve out 
an lvm from the disk and put my .iso files in there and install off of them. 
How is this done?

what url are you using? http://ftp.debian.org/debian ?

Does you dom0 have access to the internet? Can you wget the following url from dom0 : http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/xen/vmlinuz . If not, you could check dom0 network config.

If you cannot have access to internet from dom0 (internal policy, etc.), then you can set up an internal web server with the content of the following directory : http://ftp.debian.org/debian/dists/squeeze/main/installer-i386/current/images/netboot/xen/ . You are not required to download more since you can configure the debian installer to use a proxy after initial kernel/ramdisk loading.



I can create an lvm easy enough but I am not sure how to mount it and expose it 
to XCP. Is there some type of magic I am missing? Is there a good manual that 
explains this and gives some examples? Is the storage.pdf file from the xen 
site what everyone else has used to understand this and do what I am trying to?

Thanks for any guidance,
