Hello George,

are these Methods suitable for the XEN Cloud Platform, too?
If that's a stupid question, please excuse me - I'm fairly new to XCP
and i thought every DomU-Disk is a logical volume with its own partition

if yes, I would be glad if you'd give me some more ideas about the 1st

Many thanks in advance and best regards,
