TKU February 2009

In TKU February 2009 the patterns for both Citrix XenServer and Citrix XenCenter were updated with changes to the 'type' attribute for the XenServer and XenCenter.
The 'type' attribute have changed as follows:

  • Citrix XenServer pattern:
    • 'Citrix Xen Enterprise Server' to 'Citrix XenServer Server'
    • 'Xen Enterprise Server' to 'XenSource XenServer Server'
    • 'Xen Enterprise Domain' to 'Citrix XenServer Domain'
  • Citrix XenCenter pattern:
    • 'Citrix Xen Center' to 'Citrix XenCenter'

In addition to this, the vm_type attribute (created when SI for XenServer domain is created) was changed in Citrix XenServer pattern from: 'Xen Domain' to 'XenServer Domain'

Finally, the Consolidation method was modified. A new approach is used, which rectifies a bug in the former Unix trigger, and adds support for consolidating Windows guest hosts. For more details, please refer to the relevant page.

TKU May 2009

In TKU May 2009 Citrix XenServer pattern updated to resolve an issue that could occur on some hosts where an attempt to download '/sys/hypervisor/uuid' file could lead to discovery hanging due to a bug in the Linux kernel of the host. The pattern only attempts to download the file if 'xenstored' process is running.
