Exporting and Importing a List of Managed Servers

Jan 31, 2013

You can export your list of managed servers from XenCenter to a configuration file which can then be imported into a XenCenter session running on another computer. This could be useful, for example, to copy your list of managed servers from your desktop computer to a laptop, avoiding having to manually adding a long list of servers on the new machine.

The IP address/DNS name, port and display name of each managed VM is saved in XML format in a XenCenter configuration file with a .config file extension. Your login credentials are not stored.

To export your list of managed servers

  1. On the File menu, click Export Server List.
  2. Specify the name and location of the export file and then click Save.

To import a list of servers

  1. On the File menu, click Import Server List.
  2. Locate the XenCenter configuration file and then click Open.

    The servers appear in the XenCenter Resources pane with a disconnected status .

  3. Double click on each imported server in the Resources pane to connect to it.
