Step 15: It will ask for an installation for XenServer click on It.
Step 16: Set the date and time and click on ok.
Step 17: After installation, it will open the Citrix XenServer.
Step 18: Note down the IP address of the XenServer.
Step 19: Go to Start -> Control panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Advanced Sharing Setting.
Step 20: Both in public and private turn on network discovery, turn on file and printer sharing, and select use user account and password to connect to another computer, but in public turn off password protect sharing and click on save changes.
Step 21: Go to Citrix folder -> share with -> specific people, and share that folder with everyone
Step 22: Open the Citrix XenServer.
Step 23: Click on add server it will ask the server name to provide the IP address (192.168.159.162) and password as (“admin@13”) and click on ADD.
Step 24: After connecting to server click on “new storage”, select “window file sharing (CIFS) and click on next.
Step 25: Give some name to storage and click on next.
Step 26: In location give \\192.168.159.162\Citrix then click on finish.
Step 27: Now we have new storage in which we have all the (. ISO) files required for the installation of VMs. So let’s create a new virtual machine, and for that click on new VM.
Step 28: In the template field, select the name of the virtual machine you want to install. Then in the name field provide the name of the virtual machine of your choice. In the Installation Media field selects the ISO image of the VM from the storage repository we created earlier.
Step 29: On home server just click on next.
Step 30: Provide CPU & Memory details.
Step 31: Provide the storage for VM.
Step 32: Keep the networking field as default and then click on create new.
Step 33: Once created it will automatically power on.
In conclusion, implementing VMS on XenServer can be a straightforward process by following a series of steps. By creating a virtual machine, configuring settings, establishing network connections, and utilizing storage repositories, you can effectively set up your XenServer environment.
