Resource Status Icons

The current status of managed resources - servers (hosts), virtual machines, storage, and templates - is represented using different icons in the Resources pane and elsewhere in XenCenter:

Servers

Icon Description
Alt text A server that is connected and is up and running normally.
Alt text A server that is temporarily not connected to XenCenter, for example because it is being rebooted or suspended.
Alt text A server that is disconnected, for example because it has been shut down.
Alt text A server that is currently in Maintenance Mode. See Run in Maintenance Mode.
Alt text A server on which a crash dump file has been created as a result of a system failure. Crash dump files are located in a folder named crash under the /var directory on the server. Crash dump file can provide invaluable information to your support engineer to aid in diagnosing XenServer-related problems, and can be included in server status reports generated in XenCenter using the Get Server Status Report utility. See Creating a Server Status Report. for more information on using this feature. When you remove the crash dump file from the /var directory on the server, the server status icon shown in XenCenter will be restored to normal.
Alt text A server for which updates are available. See Updating Managed Servers.
