Where are the xs-tools.iso?

I have installed xenserver with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as dom0. I finally figured out how to actually get a guest OS installed (also Ubuntu Server 12.04) and ran openxenmanager. Now I need to install the xenserver tools.

The problem is that every tutorial or users guide is telling me to mount it in the cd drive. The problem is that when I click on the drop down, the XenServer Tools is grayed out and unselectable.

I also tried out XenCenter on Windows and all of my installation ISO' are listed but XenServer Tools is blank.

How do I get Xen Server Tools so that I can install them on my guests?

    Mahesa,

    FWIW, questions about XenServer will find a better audience over at XenServer.org. They have a good Q&A section over there for questions like this.

    http://xenserver.org/discuss-virtualization/q-and-a.html

    You may get an answer here (a fair number of Xen users do so via XenServer), but XenServer.org has a focus on XenServer-specific issues like this.

    Still no answer from there. The drop down menu under storage doesn't give me the options for the xs-tools.iso.
