Feature suggestion: attach an existing SR in XO
AFAIK XO can only create a new storage repository, it would be nice to being able to attach an existing one as well.
I think we already have this, but you can try to confirm (it works for iSCSI and NFS IIRC):
- Add the info
- if should warn there is a previous/existing SR on this iSCSI/NFS share and you can reconnect.
I see, there IS a reattach feature but it's not entirely obvious.
When I click on the white chain, blue background "Reattach SR" icon it creates an iSCSI SR named "[object HTMLInputElement]" and the xsconsole says it's "detached and not usable by this host".
So it doesn't appear to work as intended, at least not in git version e88848c44 from a few days back.
If I click the "Create" button after having clicked "Reattach" I get a warning about existing VDIs will be deleted and that's also what happens when I go through with it.
I also suggest placing button next to the "Create" one. Like this
Thanks for your feedback, please open an issue here to describe that so XO devs will improve it: http://github.com/vatesfr/xen-orchestra/issues/new
@peder Did you resolve this issue or report it on github (can't find it)? I have same issue reattaching NFS and iSCSI SR. After clicking reattach button, the SR is created but with no PBD. Creating new SR is fine. I have to use xencenter for reattaching.
@tonyp90 I did file a feature suggestion, https://github.com/vatesfr/xen-orchestra/issues/4273 , but not a bug report.
I'm using the xsconsole on the xcp-ng server itself in the few cases where I need to re-attach an SR.
