XenServer® hosts with shared NFS storage

The basic hardware requirements are as follows:

  • Two or more 64-bit x86 servers with local storage
  • One or more Windows workstation(s), on the same network as the XenServer hosts
  • A server exporting a shared directory over NFS

Follow this high-level procedure:

  1. Install the XenServer host software on the servers.
  2. Install XenCenter on the workstation(s).
  3. Connect XenCenter to the XenServer hosts.
  4. Create your pool of XenServer hosts.
  5. Configure the NFS server.
  6. Create an SR on the NFS share at the pool level.
