I'd like to be able to create a windows DomU which is to be stored on a NAS (Equallogic) device. I was wondering if anyone has any best practices on how to do this? Is there a way to extend the DomU C drive once you create the initial device, etc? Any suggestions would be great.

I have already tried this by just using a phy:/dev/path-to-iscsi-mount- point and it appears to be working great. But I'm unsure of how stable, performance problems, etc this would cause? I've also so far been unable to find a way to extend the drive if I add space to the volume on the Equallogic device.
