Hi Bob, I disabled the firewall on my storage server and attempted to add 
another storage domain on the same storage server with v3 - it succeeded. 
to further verify - I then enabled the firewall again and attempted to 
add yet another storage domain with v3 - and it failed, just like before. 
so it seems that you are right - something is probably wrong with the  
firewall configuration on my storage server - I will investigate. 
Many Thanks!
