Sorry to leave you hanging for a few days. The problem here is that the
VM.suspend_SR field is new to the API, and isn't present in XCP 1.1. The
version of XenCenter you're using is for XenServer 6.0, which has the
new API field. Here is a mapping of XCP/XenServer version numbers:

 XCP   | XenServer     | Codename
1.0    | 5.6.1 "FP1"   | Cowley
1.1    | 5.6.1 "SP2"   | Oxford
1.5*   | 6.0.0         | Boston
1.6*   | 6.1.0* "SP1"  | Tampa*

* Unreleased version; names and numbers may change

(Note to self: this should probably be on the wiki somewhere...)

I think that your best bet is to install the XenCenter that corresponds
to XenServer 5.6.1 SP2 and use that with XCP 1.1. Or you can use
OpenXenManager[1][2], though I admit that it's nowhere near as polished
as XenCenter.
