I have a couple of questions regarding XCP I hope to get answers to:

1. I've enabled local storage caching, with the command xe
host-enable-local-storage-caching host=(uuid) sr-uuid=(local ext3)
How can I check if this is working? My local SR used space does not seem to
change over time and the HD seems to be idle...

2. Has anyone been able to get quiesced snapshots working on a Windows SBS
2003? Since XS 5.6 I've almost never been able to perform a VSS snapshot,
instead XCP throws an error similar to "The quiesced snapshot failed for an
unexpected reason". This error has haunted me from XS 5.6, XCP 0.5 and now
XCP 1.0 RC2. Whether NFS, local EXT3, Intel or AMD, VSS is just broken. I'm
begging for help, in this regard.

Thanks in advance.
