      Description

      XenServer 7.2 will fail with the following error when attempting to reclaim freed space on a SSD RAID array:

      "Failed","Reclaiming freed space on SR 'Local storage'
      blkdiscard: /dev/VG_XenStorage-5e3bb883-fe1b-e4d0-401c-4006fe1efeb2/5e3bb883-fe1b-e4d0-401c-4006fe1efeb2_trim_lv: BLKDISCARD ioctl failed: Operation not supported
      Time: 00:00:02","servernamegoeshere.com","Dec 20, 2017 9:23 AM"

      XenServer refuses to cleanup failed migration storage that I have no access to remove, thus eating up all local storage space. This was not an issue with XenServer 5.x or 6.x with SSDs.
