Power on a server remotely

The Host Power On feature allows you to remotely power on managed servers from XenCenter. For servers to use this feature, they must fulfill the following criteria:

  • The server has remote power control support: Wake-on-LAN functionality, a DRAC or iLO card, or a custom power-on script.
  • You have enabled Host Power On in the server Properties settings. This feature can be enabled once for multiple servers at pool-level. For more information, see Configuring Host Power On.

After Host Power On has been configured, select the server or servers and then do one of the following:

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