Showing sda or hda disk as xvhda on Xen Center5.6 FP1


I am using Xen Center5.6 FP1 since last 8 months and it was working
fine since last few weeks, when i observed that suddenly all new Xen VMs
started showing me sda or hda disks as xvhd.
This is observed when i try to create any new Xen VM on my
XenCenter5.6FP1. All my earlier Xen VMs are still showing hda or sda but
when i try to upgrade the respective VMs say from SLES11GA to SLES11
SP1, it again started showing me only xvhd.

Can anyone on the forum let me know the reason for that?

Thanks in advance.
