Creating a Server Status Report

Oct 09, 2015

The Server Status Report wizard provides a convenient way to collect and package a comprehensive snapshot of a specific XenServer installation for troubleshooting purposes. Options let you include or exclude a range of different configuration files and log files for selected servers.

The Server Status Report gets packaged as a single zip file that can be stored and/or emailed. The size of the report you generate varies, depending on which items you choose to include. The zip file includes:

  • A folder for each server, containing the report types you select in the wizard
  • XenCenter log files

To generate a server status report

On the Tools menu, click Get Server Status Report and follow the steps in the Server Status Report wizard:

  1. Select Servers. Select the servers for which you want to collect report data.

    All available managed servers are listed. If a server not listed, you may be able to add it to the list by clicking Add New Server.

  2. Select Report Contents. Select the data to include in the report and then click Next.
  3. Compile Report. This page shows the progress of the report compilation and reports any problems with the data collection. Click Next when the report compilation is complete.
  4. Report Destination. Browse to locate the folder where the report will be saved and then click Finish to save the report files to the specified folder and close the wizard.
