recover repository after re-install OVS 3.4

harvanaMay 25 2017 — edited May 26 2017

I re-installed  OVS (Oracle Virtual Server 3.4) for cleaning.

I wanted to remain VM, VA, Template and ISO file in existing Repository.

So I repartitioned disk only about OS when reinstalling.

And I want recover Repository for my VM ans ISO files after re-install.

But I think that OVS recognize blank disk as repository in OVM-UI.

I referenced 'Handling Missing Disks,FS and Repository' section of 'install and Upgrade Guide' on Oracle.com docs.

But, It's not sure correctly, because delete physical disk  in ovm-cli  according to this guide.

Below, storage report(.xml) in OVM-UI.
