Citrix XenServer 6 and Web Self Service


Here’s a new video showing you how to install Citrix XenServer 6 and enable IntelliCache in XenServer. IntelliCache is a technology that may reduce the requirements for central storage by as much as 90%. Be aware that this is a technology which is dedicated for XenDesktop using Machine Creation Services (MCS) only. Provisioning Server does not leverage IntelliCache technology today.

Select Enable thin provisioning (Optimized storage for XenDesktop) when installing XenServer. The installer will then create a Storage Repository which has thin provisioning enabled. You cannot enable thin provisioning after a non-thin provisioned Storage Repository has been created. This includes the case where you are upgrading from an older version of XenServer.

As a bonus we also show you how to import and configure the brand new XenServer Web Self Service appliance.

  1. Hi,
    thank you for the interesting tutorial.
    I’m trying to do the same using: vmware workstation 8, XenServer 6.0.2 and the WSS 1.1.1.
    Addresses are all set on DHCP on the internal private network (Host-only setting on vmware):

    I correctly installed XenServer on vmware and I connected using XenCenter on my pc. Afterwards I successfully installed WSS on XenServer and, despite the DHCP address is pingable from my pc, i’m unable to access the WSS via the browser.

    Do you have any advice?

    Thank you.
