unRAID on Xenserver - "attached" SATA drive not found

Hello unRAID experts,


I'm using unRAID for quite a while now as a VM in ESXI without any problems. Now I want to give xenserver a try. I managed to install unRAID on xenserver following this guide: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=30719.0


My hardware does not support IO virtualization, so I managed that one SATA hostdrive was recognized as "Removable storage" in xencenter (see here: http://techblog.conglomer.net/sata-direct-local-disk-access-on-xenserver/)

Then I can attach this drive to the unRAID VM. When I log into unRAID, this is the result of fdisk:

fdisk -l

Disk /dev/xvdc: 2000.4 GB, 2000398934016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 243201 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000xxxxx

    Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/xvdc1               1      243202  1953512448    7  HPFS/NTFS


But the webinterface does not show this drive! I already attached this drive to a Windows VM. And it worked. The unRAID logs do not show anything (obvious) to me.


Can someone please help?


Thanks in advance!
