I can confirm this, it seems to be missing from the packages.

@wido, do you know about this ? It seems that we might be missing a dependency in the deb
packages. At least on 14.04.

don't you?

folder. This bit is missing from documentation and because of this system vms will no get
created. Simply downloading the file into the locattion indicated in the installation guide
is not enough. It is not being copied to the xenserver host automatically.
