Select any connected server in the Resources pane and click on the General tab to see its properties and current status. Click Properties to change the properties of a server.
You can change the name, description, folder, and tags for a server on the General Properties tab of the server's Properties dialog box.
The server's iSCSI IQN is used to uniquely identify it when connecting to iSCSI storage repositories (SRs). XenServer hosts support a single iSCSI initiator which is automatically created and configured with a random IQN during host installation. The single initiator can be used to connect to multiple iSCSI targets (SRs) concurrently. For more detailed information about XenServer support for iSCSI storage, see the XenServer Administrator's Guide.

Custom fields allow you to add information to managed resources to make it easier to search and organize them. See Using custom fields to find out how to assign custom fields to your managed resources.
Use this tab to configure performance alerts for the server's CPU, memory usage, and network activity. For more information, see Configuring performance alerts.
Use this tab to configure email notification for system alerts generated on a standalone server. This feature is configured at pool level for servers in a pool. See XenCenter Alerts for information on how to receive alert notifications by email.
Dynamic storage multipathing support is available for Fibre Channel and iSCSI storage repositories, and can be enabled via the Multipathing tab on the server's Properties dialog.
See Storage Multipathing for information about enabling and disabling multipathing.
Use this tab to configure the XenServer Host Power On feature, allowing managed servers to be powered on remotely. For more information about configuring this feature, see Configuring Host Power On. For servers in a pool, this feature is configured at pool level.
XenServer system log messages may be stored locally on the server itself or on a remote server.
The remote server must be running a syslogd daemon in order to receive the logs and aggregate them correctly. The syslog daemon is a standard part of all flavors of Linux and Unix, and third-party versions are available for Windows and other operating systems. The remote server should also be configured to allow remote connections from the hosts in the pool, and have its firewall configured appropriately.

The GPU tab allows you to:
The GPU tab allows you to set a host-wide policy to assign VMs to available GPUs to achieve either maximum density or maximum performance. Select an option based on your requirements.
The GPU tab displays Mixed setting only when different settings are used for different GPU groups, that is, when certain GPU groups are configured to achieve maximum density, and the rest are configured to achieve maximum performance. Customers should note that it is not possible to set or edit the Mixed setting using XenCenter. You should use the xe Command Line Interface if you would like to use different settings for different GPU groups.
Integrated GPU passthrough
When your XenServer host is connected to an Intel GPU on an Intel Server, the XenServer host’s control domain (dom0) will be connected to the integrated GPU device. In such cases, the GPU will not be available for pass-through. Select This server will not use the Integrated GPU to disable the connection between dom0 and the GPU and reboot the host for the changes to take effect. For more information, see GPU.
