Creating a Server Status Report

The Server Status Report wizard provides a convenient way to collect and package a comprehensive snapshot of a specific Citrix Hypervisor installation for troubleshooting purposes. Options let you include or exclude a range of different configuration files and log files for selected servers.

The Server Status Report gets packaged as a single zip file that can be stored or emailed. The size of the report you generate varies, depending on which items you choose to include. The zip file includes:

  • A folder for each server, containing the report types you select in the wizard
  • XenCenter log files

By default, the files gathered for a server status report can be limited in size. If you need log files that are larger than the default, you can run the command xenserver-status-report -u in the Citrix Hypervisor server console.

On the Tools menu, select Server Status Report and follow the steps in the Server Status Report wizard:

  1. Select Servers. Select the servers for which you want to collect report data.

    All available managed servers are listed. If a server not listed, you might be able to add it to the list by clicking Add New Server.

  2. Select Report Contents. Select the data to include in the report and then select Next.
  3. Compile Report. This page shows the progress of the report compilation and reports any problems with the data collection. Select Next when the report compilation is complete.
