Really I don't know, it is the first time I deal with SAN and xen.
I know that we have an HBA with fiber channel.
I need some advice on how to use a domU with a SAN storage.
Specifically I have a mail server on a DomU with a debian lenny amd64
operating system.
The filesystem is all on a logical volume named mail-disk of about 200Gb.
I have all the mail account under /var/vmail.
I want to create another mail server and use the same mail accounts.
So my need is to move /var/vmail under SAN storage so it can be
accessed by the first mail server and by the second mail server.
Besides I need much more space for /var/vmail so to move it on a SAN
storage I think is the best solution.
