Starting or Exiting XenCenter

Nov 28, 2012

Starting XenCenter

To start a XenCenter session, do one of the following:

  • On the Start menu, choose: Start > All Programs > Citrix > Citrix XenCenter
  • Double-click the Citrix XenCenter desktop shortcut.

If XenCenter was configured in an earlier session to restore your server connections on startup and a master password was set, you will be prompted to enter this password before continuing. See Store Your Server Connection State to find out more about how to set your server reconnection preferences.

Note that it is possible to run only one XenCenter session per user.

Exiting XenCenter

To exit the current XenCenter session: on the File menu, click Exit.

Any servers and VMs that are running when you exit will continue running after the XenCenter application window closes.

If there are any XenCenter tasks running, such as importing or exporting VMs, you will be warned when you try to exit. You can choose to exit anyway, in which case unfinished tasks may not complete successfully, or wait until the unfinished tasks have completed.
