I have a XenServer running in my co-location rack and my XenCenter is running at home and connected to it.
What I am trying to do is create some VMs by importing XVA files, but those XVA files are on an NFS server local to the XenServer. The XenServer does have a Storage Resource (SR) on that same XenServer but at a different share point.
If I try to create another SR at the NFS share point where the XVA files are it does not recognize the XVA files as anything I can import. They are not visible at all.
What I don't want to do is copy those XVA files to the system where I am running XenCenter so I can do an import (menu File -> Import) from there. That would take too much time given that would be two transfers (one down, then back up) of 500GB files via a cable modem.
Is there any way to do this?
