Re: [Xen-users] SSD 4K Alignment?

Hi All,

Just wondering if Xen/XCP aligns local storage to 4K boundaries when
using 4K formatted storage such as SSD's? If not, is there a documented
way to manually perform this alignment?

You mean in the context of using a file to contain the virtual disk image? Just put it on a FS that is using 4KB sectors, and that is aligned to a 4KB boundary, and when you are installing the guest make sure you set up the FS to also use 4KB blocks.
