Starting or Exiting XenCenter

Starting XenCenter

To start your XenCenter session, do one of the following:

  • On the Start menu, choose: Start > All Programs > Citrix > Citrix XenCenter
  • Double-click the Citrix XenCenter desktop shortcut.

If you previously configured XenCenter to restore your server connections on startup and set a master password, XenCenter prompts you to enter this password before continuing. See Store Your Server Connection State to find out more about how to set your server reconnection preferences.

It is possible to run only one XenCenter session per user.

Exiting XenCenter

To exit the current XenCenter session, on the File menu, select Exit.

Any servers and VMs that are running when you exit XenCenter continue to run after the XenCenter application window closes.

If there are any XenCenter tasks in progress, such as importing or exporting VMs, XenCenter warns you when you try to exit. You can choose to exit anyway, in which case unfinished tasks might not complete successfully. Alternatively, you can wait until the unfinished tasks have completed.
