Hello,


I am trying to use cloudstack open source version with open source xen. I am not able to find installation guide for cloudstack with open source xen (xcp). I found one doc for citrix xenserver but because its not free... we dont want to use it.


Please guide me to the installation document for Centos 6.x + Cloudstack + XCP (open source xen)


Thanks

CloudStack supports the free version of XenServer. There is no need to buy XenServer licenses as no CloudStack features require any features of licensed XenServer.

As for XCP, I assume you mean this XCP:
XCP Download

I don't know of any guides specifically for using XCP hosts with CloudStack. However, I believe you can simply treat XCP hosts as you would XenServer hosts since they are essentially equivalent.

If you mean XAPI / XenAPI / XCP toolstack installed on a general Linux distribution, you could try doing the same but I don't know if it would work.

Best regards,
Kirk

Hello,

Thank you for your response. Well, whenever I search for free xenserver version, it points me to citrix xenserver.. and free version of the same can be downloaded from below link.

www.citrix.com/downloads/xenserver/evalu...-trial-software.html


However the page says, "Trial / Evaluation software".. so I am not sure if this one should be deployed on production servers.. is this the free xenserver you are referring to?

Thanks and regards,

Hi, all you need is the installation ISO. After installing any addition of XenServer (the ISO is the same for all editions) it will be in evaluation mode for 30 days until you add a license. A free license can be requested and assigned in XenCenter.

To get the installation ISO I believe you need to create a My Citrix account, which should let you download the ISO here:
XenServer 6.0.2. Download "XenServer 6.0.2 Base Installation ISO".

Best regards,
Kirk
