XenCenter

Exporting and Importing a List of Managed Servers

You can export your list of managed servers from XenCenter to a configuration file. You can import this configuration file into a XenCenter session on another computer. This feature can be useful, for example, to copy your list of managed servers from your desktop computer to a laptop. You can avoid having to manually adding a long list of servers on the new machine.

XenCenter saves the IP address or DNS name, port, and display name of each managed VM in XML format in a file with a .config file name extension. Your login credentials are not stored.

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