Power on a server remotely

The Host Power On feature allows you to remotely power on managed servers from XenCenter. To use this feature, the servers must have remote power control support (Wake-on-LAN functionality, a DRAC or iLO card, or a custom power-on script) and you must have enabled Host Power On in each server’s Properties (this can be enabled once for multiple servers at pool-level).

See Configuring Host Power On to what you need to do to set up and enable this feature.

Once Host Power On has been configured, select the server(s) and then do one of the following:

  1. On the Server menu, click Power On.
  2. Right-click and select Power On.
