    How to install XenServer Tools on Centos / Linux

    In this tutorial we covers how to install XenServer Tools for your current virtual machine. This applies to CentOS, Debian and also Red Hat methods.

    1. Open up XenCenter and set up a connection for your XenServer. Here is an illustration of this a Virtual Machine it really is a fresh install although won't have XenServer Methods setup. You will discover that for "Virtualization State: " it claims "Tools not installed".

    Let's get started through right-clicking about the name of our Virtual Appliance and also clicking "Install XenServer Tools". A warning may come up stating that will, "Any CD as well as DVD currently inside Virtual Machine's CD drive might be ejected when xenServer Methods are installed. " Visit "Install ZenServer Tools" to unless you are currently employing a CD in the VM. If you do, continue this tutorial during a period when the exclusive disk get will be free for make use of.


    3. You should be sent to this console tab of XenCenter for your Virtual Machine. You will notice that at the top of the window, below the tabs which the software is letting you know who's has this CD image regarding "xs-tools. iso" loaded into the DVD Drive. It also will provide you with the device name from the system.


    4. You're able to do the next steps via either the machine or via the SSH session towards the system. I will certainly perform the set up using SSH. Here would be the output of my own session. Remember which the drive's device name is supplied by XenCenter.





    Code:
    $ ssh 10.17.37.243
    root@10.17.37.243's password:
    Last login: Thu Sep 11 12:57:31 2008 from 10.0.80.84
    [root@ns0 ~]# cd /mnt
    [root@ns0 mnt]# ls
    [root@ns0 mnt]# mkdir xs-tools
    [root@ns0 mnt]# mount /dev/xvdd /mnt/xs-tools/
    mount: block device /dev/xvdd is write-protected, mounting read-only
    [root@ns0 mnt]# cd /mnt/xs-tools/Linux/
    [root@ns0 Linux]# bash install.sh
    Detected `CentOS release 5.2 (Final)' (centos version 5).
     
    The following changes will be made to this Virtual Machine:
    * packages to be installed/upgraded:
    - kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.1.13.el5.xs4.1.0.24.x86_64.rpm
    - xe-guest-utilities-4.1.0-257.x86_64.rpm
     
    Continue? [y/n] y
     
    Preparing...########################################### [100%]
    1:xe-guest-utilities########################################### [100%]
    Preparing...########################################### [100%]
    package kernel-xen-2.6.18-92.el5 (which is newer than kernel-xen-2.6.18-53.1.13.el5.xs4.1.0.24) is already installed
     
    You should now reboot this Virtual Machine.
    [root@ns0 Linux]#
    If you would like to simply copy and paste into your shell, this script should do the work for you provided that you are assigned the same device name of /dev/xvdd

    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/xs-tools
    mount /dev/xvdd /mnt/xs-tools
    cd /mnt/xs-tools/Linux/
    bash install.sh
