Thanks, Harold,
Interestingly in the XCP 1.5 beta release I do not see /dev/disk/by-id,
so I wasn't able to use that.  Instead, I came up with the following
xe sr-create content-type=user device-config:device=/dev/sda3
host-uuid=47f5967d-76c9-4e66-b6e6-543afcf1c19e name-label="Local
storage" shared=false type=lvm

This should have been done at install time by the installer, so not sure
if this is a bug or just a glitch during the install I was doing?
