[Xen-users] installation and configuration documentation for XCP

i've installed XCP 1.5-beta. i'm a little confused as to what has
happened. everything so far seems to work. however, i need more
information on what was done to my hard disk during the installation
and how was the file system set up.

in particular, i was investigating how to create a new logical volume
to place my ISO file to use as my ISO storage (SR). i notice (see
below with lvs command) that something like this was already created
automatically, BUT, it was not mounted anywhere. i was wondering why
this artifact logical volume was created and not mounted?

i have a 3 TB hard disk. when i issue: fdisk -l, i get the following output.

WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util
fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.
WARNING: The size of this disk is 3.0 TB (3000592982016 bytes).
DOS partition table format can not be used on drives for volumes
larger than 2.2 TB (2199023255040 bytes). Use parted(1) and GUID
partition table format (GPT).

the pvs command gives me the following:

the vgs command gives me the following:

the lvs command gives me the following:
