[Issues at the end of this post...] Here it is ! Full of promizes, and full of new options we are all waiting for. Let me tell you first, this is BETA release from Citrix, so don't complain to me or to Citrix if you crash your production servers, you have to run test and wait for the final new release. You can access the whole stuff from your MyCitrix account in Tech/Beta preview of XenServer. You have to download the two isos files, the proper license file and XenCenter (there is a new 5.5 version). To perfom this update just boot on the CD you just download and follow the instruction on the screen, this is what I did in the next video : [flash medium=6] Once it's done, just reboot and you did it ! Now let's me show you some of the new things I saw, I will come back later on it with a full report, it's sunday and I'm suppose to stop to geeking around during the week end :) Edit : later in the afternoon... First issue : The network didn't work at all on the new XenServer 5.5 Beta 1. I wasn't able to ping it and wasn't able to ping from it. Weird behave, it looks like the system doesn't have the parameters showing in the console recorded in the network configuration file. First try was the good, just reconfigure the network management card with the same parameters as before, so the configuration will be record again in the filesystem. BUT I DIDN'T LAST.... I had to browse a bit Citrix's support to find out I had to editÂ a file : /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and add : ETHTOOL_OPTS="speed 100 duplex full" I think it finaly did the trick... I will wait for tomorow to tell you it was good.
This video shows the way you have to follow to update your Citrix Edgesight 5.01 to 5.01 with SP1. You have to log in Windows with the database service account if possible because for a reason I haven't understand yet, as I'm using a nlb IIS Cluster with nlb SQL Reporting Services and a SQL 2005 cluster database, I was not able to complete the installation of Edgesight 5.01 SP1. (Watch bellow the version you'll get) Click on continue reading to watch the video : [flash http://www.archy.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/update-citrix-edgesight-501-to-sp1.swf] Once the setup is done, as I'm in nlb mode, I have to upload new templates and reports on both machines, so I change the nlb name with the two servers name and updating everything. Don't forget to update you XenApp Edgesight Client and you Endpoint Edgesight client as well.
