Citrix XenServer 5.5 Installation Guide

August 4, 2009

Overview

This Xtravirt white paper details the process of performing a basic installation of Citrix XenServer 5.5, including XenCenter and the registration and licensing process. Although similar to XenServer 5 (http://xtravirt.com/xd10025) the fundamental difference is the registration and licensing section.

A XenServer installation consists of two separate, physical computers; one being the XenServer host and the other to run the XenCenter management application.

XenServer is a 64-bit, x86 server-class platform devoted to hosting multiple Virtual Machines (VM’s). XenCenter is a Windows based client application that runs on a remote machine and is used to manage XenServer hosts. While the XenServer machine must be dedicated to the task of hosting VM’s, XenCenter can run on any general-purpose machine, alongside other applications.

Key Concepts:

  • Installation of XenServer 5.5
  • Installation of XenCenter 5.5
  • Registration and Licensing
