Subject Re: NetScaler VPX 10 VM wont boot using CS 4.1
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2013 20:32:01 GMT
Hi, Dave.  CloudStack will always create a virtual CD/DVD drive for VMs.
 This is a known limitation.  I've filed an enhancement request for this

As a workaround, if possible try XenServer 6.0.2 since the NetScaler
appliance seems to work on it even with a CD drive.

Best regards,
