Re: [Xen-users] Gluster as Localstorage in XenServer 6.1 ?

Thanks andrew, and sorry if the question  should not be here, but we won't use nfs, we want to use the fault tolerance of gluster as local storage.

Today, if you use  Xen Center there isn't thie option, perhaps in the future, but we believe that there must be a way to present gluster to xen server as local storage. 

Greetings Pablo

I am not entirely sure if I am qualified to answer this question. But glusterfs is a distributed file system. meaning that it is not suitable for local storage.

You *might* be able to do something such as creating a distributed disc where the replication number is equal to the number of locations you are using in the gluster cluster.

The other option, and more likely way to do this, is to look at the NFS connection for gluster, and connect to xenserver to gluster via the nfs interface.

Dear Community:

      We're surfing the web trying to search any hint for to use gluster as localstorage with XenServer 6.1, without success.

      Our doubt is , we can use the xen command line as:

      xe sr-create name-label="GlusterTest" type=xxx content-type=yyyy .....

     Thanks in advance for any hint.
