|How do I install Xen Server tools on Linux?|
Hey Reader, In this post, we will describe how to install Xen Server tools on Linux operating systems like Ubuntu, CentOS, RedHat. Xen server tools help you fetch additional information for monitoring, Operating System type, get private IP address in a networking tab, root-cause analysis, and many more.
Clients should install XenServer Tools on individual VM to be able to perform the following actions:
* Customize the number of vCPUs on a running Linux VM (Windows VMs require a reboot for this to take effect)
* View VM performance data in XenCenter
* Create quiesced snapshots or snapshots with memory (checkpoints), or revert to snapshots
* Migrate a running VM (using XenMotion or Storage XenMotion)
