How to install xen tools on Citrix XenServer 6.5?



  • Hi,

    I have installed pfSense 2.2 on Citrix XenServer 6.5. How can I install Xen tools on pfSense?

    Thank you for help



  • poldas, try it:

    Step 1:  # pkg install xe-guest-utilities

    Step 2: Enable it to start on boot.

    echo "xenguest_enable="YES"" >> /etc/rc.conf.local

    ln -s /usr/local/etc/rc.d/xenguest /usr/local/etc/rc.d/xenguest.sh

    Step 3: Start

    service xenguest start

    The service will start automatically when you next reboot
    it works for v2.2 on 6.5 XS

    p.s.
    your VM must be connected to inet



  • Hello net1c, in pfsense 2.3 I receive the following error "no packages available to install matching xe-guest-utilities". How can I install xenserver-tools on pfsense 2.3? Thank you



  • I don't know what happened to you, but I can verify that it worked with 2.3.2-RELEASE.
