Power on a server remotely


XenCenter YYYY.x.x is not yet supported for use with Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 in production environments. To manage your Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 production environment, use XenCenter 8.2.7. For more information, see the XenCenter 8.2.7 documentation.

You can install XenCenter 8.2.7 and XenCenter YYYY.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter YYYY.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

The Host Power On feature allows you to remotely power on managed servers from XenCenter. For servers to use this feature, they must fulfill the following criteria:

  • The server has remote power control support: Wake-on-LAN functionality, a DRAC card, or a custom power-on script.
  • You have enabled Host Power On in the server Properties settings. This feature can be enabled once for multiple servers at pool-level. For more information, see Configuring Host Power On.

After Host Power On has been configured, select the server or servers and then do one of the following:

  • On the Server menu, select Power On.
  • Right-click and select Power On.
