add iso partition to xenserver

link: https://adamscheller.com/systems-administration/xenserver-local-iso-storage-new-partition/

for posterity…

figure out the name of the volume group (something like name-uuid)

pvscan

 

create the new volume

lvcreate -L 150G -n ISOs name-uuid

 

find the volume you just created

 
lvscan |grep ISO

 

create the filesystem

mkfs.ext2 /dev/other-name-uuid/ISOs

 

make the mount point

mkdir /mnt/isos

 

create the repository

xe sr-create name-label=ISOs type=iso device-config:legacy_mode=true device-config:location=/mnt/isos content-type=iso

 

mount the disk

mount -t ext2 /dev/name-uuid/ISOs /mnt/isos
