In this video we will step though the installation of Citrix XenServer 5.6, installing Supplement Packs, installing the XENCenter Management Tool and creating an NFS ISO Library. To start I have to download the XenServer Installation ISO from Citrix and the Linux Supplement Pack so I can support Linux virtual machines as well as Windows based VMs. XenServer is a Linux based Virtual Machine Server and install quite quickly, once installed I am prompted to install any supplent disks, from here I then switch disks and install the Linux Driver Pack. Once installed the XenServer will boot to a Text menu from where I can manage the server and virtual machines. I can use the menu or shell out to the command line. Often though administration is maintained from the GUI base XenCenter from a Windows desktop. The XenCenter msi is found on the installation disk for XenServer so is simple to locate and manage. From XenCenter I can connect to my XenServer and manage virtual machines. Additonally I can add the NFS ISO library, connecting to another Linux Host that has shared out ISOs with NFS. This ISOs then can be made available to my Virtual Machines.
