XenServer 5.6 Feature Pack 1 Beta – storage consumption problem solved

October 27, 2010 2 comments

You remember my posts about XenServer storage consumption? The problem is, that after deleting a snapshot the space on the storage is still in use, this is really annoying and you have to reclaim the space manually by typing a command in the XenServer console or use my Powershell script.

Now the game has changed, XenServer 5.6 FP1 Beta is finally able to reclaim the space after deleting a snaphot! Feel free to test the FP 1 Beta and try it yourself! I’m glad Citrix has finally solved this problem, many XenServer customers had massive problems with this “issue”, let’s hope the final Feature Pack becomes available soon.
