I installed XenServer 6.0 on a machine with 2 drives (80GB SSD and 1TB SATA). My goal is to have some space for local storage where I can put ISO (since it will be very difficult to access the box physically, and I would prefer to install VMs from ISOs and not from CDs).
However, no matter what I specify for LVM, the only filesystem on sda is 4G (and only 2GB is available). XenCenter shows me plenty of disk space available for VMs; but that doesn't help me with ISOs.
Is it possible to increase local storage? I haven't started building VMs yet - so now is ideal time to partition the disk the way it should be. But parted is not installed - and I suspect for a reason.
Here is the output from pvdisplay:
[root@xenserver ~]# pvdisplay --- Physical volume --- PV Name /dev/sdb VG Name VG_XenStorage-a7bbe7ea-f205-5f25-4ef8-daec4e08bcb2 PV Size 931.51 GB / not usable 6.41 MB Allocatable yes PE Size (KByte) 4096 Total PE 238464 Free PE 238463 Allocated PE 1 PV UUID yqrKQi-l8mD-k3mo-PxEs-M0bK-7xx3-17nnzE "/dev/sda3" is a new physical volume of "66.53 GB" --- NEW Physical volume --- PV Name /dev/sda3 VG Name PV Size 66.53 GB Allocatable NO PE Size (KByte) 0 Total PE 0 Free PE 0 Allocated PE 0 PV UUID HlXvAo-f6gw-eqMz-5Y1d-YzYi-19tK-xZTWoE
So, the real question is, how can I make use of 66GB on
/dev/sda3 without breaking anything in XenServer?
