comment SSH file transfer between VM host and client
randomblue: open cmd in Windows 7 and type: "ipconfig" without the quotes. This should return the IP for your Local Area Network Connection. It is likely 192.168.x.x (we need you to fill in the x's). I agree with John, I think your VM is using another subnet (192.168.93.0/24) and your Windows 7 host is unable to route to it. If your Windows IP is 192.168.1.x, can you change the IP on your linux box to something in that range? maybe 192.168.1.130?

comment Generalized strategy for file server virtualization in Xenserver
Thanks for the clarification. I knew of TrueNAS but not their enterprise support option. NexentaStor I've typically seen more associated with the "Community" edition of Nexenta, but I do know vendors like Pogo are selling appliances with it preloaded. I fully agree with your answer though, I think those are the best options.

comment Generalized strategy for file server virtualization in Xenserver
Great answer. I'd group TrueNAS, NexentaStor and the other options like FreeNAS, OpenE, etc down with #2 and openfiler though. You can buy prebuilt appliances for many or build it yourself using some servers. Regarding whether you should run "heavyweight" VMs on a SAN/NAS, if it is properly designed, absolutely you can do this. I'd take a close look at NetApp. It is pricier than option 2 but may give you a better upgrade path to support growth and will give you great flexibility on how you use it (SAN/NAS). You may also want to consider how important support is, as option 2 may be limited.
