No, you can create on SR and store all of your VMs on that SR.  For example, if you use an NFS target for your VHD files, all of your VMs could share that SR.


You don’t need to assign a separate PIF for each VM.  In fact, most people won’t.  You will assign a separate VIF for each VM and then XCP can route the VIFs through a shared PIF.

I am very new to XCP , and I have couple of questions to make things clear.


After creating a resource pool:

Do I have to create a SR for each VM, if I needed to assign 100GB HDD for this VM??

Do I have to assign a pif for each VM to distribute the traffic over my hosts NICs or the master will handle this??


Thanks so much for any help
