Updating XenCenter

If automatic update notifications are configured, you might occasionally be notified that a new version of XenCenter is available. New versions of XenCenter are supplied on the Citrix Hypervisor product downloads page.

For more information, see automatic update notification.

To check for new XenCenter versions manually at any time, select Notifications, Updates and then select Refresh.

To provide update notifications, XenCenter requires internet access. If your XenCenter is behind a firewall, ensure that it has access to the updates.ops.xenserver.com domain and subdomains on the citrix.com domain through the firewall.

To download and install a new version of XenCenter:

  1. From the XenCenter navigation pane, select Notifications and then Updates. This panel displays a list of available updates.
  2. Select the required XenCenter update from the list and select Go to Web Page from the Actions menu. This action opens the Citrix Hypervisor product downloads page in your web browser.
  3. Sign in to the website, if necessary.
  4. Download the latest version of XenCenter and save the installer to your computer.
  5. Exit your current XenCenter session.
  6. Browse to the location of your download and double-click the installer .msi file to begin installing the new version of XenCenter.
