  • @Ryan, The best place to ask this question would be on xenserver.org, and in one of the various support options available. I'm going to suggest the mailing list (xs-devel) as a starting point, and that's mostly because of the deeper nature of your question. I know of block storage working with 4k block sizes, so on the surface there sh...

  • Chris, If you use standard 10GbE with XenServer 6.2, the maximum throughput will be limited by your CPU. Most people get in the range of 3.5-5.5 Gbps. If you use the same hardware with XenServer 6.5 (Creedence), you'll get close to line rate. Should you want to go higher, you can obtain some 40Gb NICs and while ymmv, I've seen rates in th...

  • Pavel, Based on this it appears the patch you applied contains Citrix specific code. This leaves you with two options. First you can rebuild your pool. To do that successfully you'll need to add a fresh server in with the offending patch not applied and then move VMs to it, and effectively downgrade each host with the goal of restoring a ...

  • Unfortunately this is somewhat expected, and there may be more artifacts from applying a Citrix hotfix to a pure XCP than just licensing issues. Citrix hotfixes are only ever tested with a Citrix release, unless specifically designated as applying to XCP (e.g. security hotfixes). With that bad news out of the way, lets see if I can't get yo...

  • Stan, I suspect you're using XenApp 6.5, and there is nothing in that SDK which would explain what you're seeing. The Shell object, and the Windows method are all standard COM objects from Microsoft. More likely the cause of your problem is either the COM registry isn't consistent between the two machines, or because the machine experienci...

  • @james, Answers inline, though on the surface it sounds like you want to accomplish this using Citrix XenDesktop. Also, you're more likely to get interest on this by posting on the xenserver.org developer mailing lists, or the Citrix XenDesktop vGPU support forums. > 1) Do I need to have multiple copies of Windows license by clon...

    ferry, I think you'll have more luck posting your question to the xs-devel mailing list over at xenserver.org: http://xenserver.org/discuss-virtualization/mailing-lists.html. On the surface, migration of any VMs in local storage will be problematic if you haven't performed a metadata backup prior to the hardware failure. If your XCP host w...
