Subject RE: Am I missing something? XenServer 6.2 SP1 & CloudStack 4.3
Date Wed, 14 May 2014 04:43:35 GMT

You can use XS6.2 with SP1 and XS62ESP1004 hotfix but CloudStack 4.3 will use XenServer620
resource file to connect to this host and won't be able to leverage new features/guestOS supported
in SP1 and XS62ESP1004 like vGPU feature addition in XS620SP1 and new guest OS support like
"Windows server 2012 R2".

My experience is that CloudStack 4.3 does support XenServer 6.2 with SP1 and XS62ESP1004 applied.

This Citrix article confirms this
as does the CloudStack Hypervisor capability view under Global Settings.

Hi Eric,

CloudStack does not support XS620SP1 in CS 4.3, because of that you are not able to deploy
"Windows Server 2012 R2" guestOS.
The next CS release i.e. CloudStack 4.4 supports XenServer 6.2SP1 and XenServer 6.2.5 as well.

(DirectAgent-238:ctx-d7215636) XenServer 6.2.0 DOES NOT support Guest OS type Windows Server
2012 R2 (64-bit)

New build and everything seems fine, but can't install from ISO.
I haven't tried to work around with another template yet, as I figured this would be supported
since it is on XenServer itself.

Just wondering if I did something wrong...
