XenServer Host Details

In the XenServer Host Details step in the Virtual Machine Configuration Wizard, you enter the details required to connect to the XenServer host server that you want to use for Install Capture.

Hostname / IP Address – Type the IP address or DNS name of the XenServer host server – for example: or server.domain.com.

Username – Type the XenServer user name. If this is your domain account, enter your domain-qualified user name (for example, domain\user or user@domain.com). However, Citrix recommends that you use a dedicated XenServer user account whose password is set to never expire rather than your standard domain account.

This user account must have VM advanced operations permissions on the XenServer. Typically this means that the user account must have at least the VM power admin role.

Password – Type the account password.

Important: If the password changes in the future, you will need to run this wizard again to enter the new password.

Test – Click to confirm that AppDNA can connect to the specified XenServer host server. If you do not click this button, the wizard performs this check when you click Next.
