Remove a Server From a Pool


XenCenter 2023.x.x is currently in preview and is not supported for production use. Note that any future references to production support apply only when XenCenter 2023.x.x and XenServer 8 go from preview status to general availability.

You can use XenCenter 2023.x.x to manage your XenServer 8 and Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 CU1 non-production environments. However, 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 2023.x.x on the same system. Installing XenCenter 2023.x.x does not overwrite your XenCenter 8.2.7 installation.

  1. Move any data stored on local disks to a shared storage repository in the same resource pool. For more information, see Move virtual disks.


    When you remove a server from a resource pool, all VM data stored on local disks is erased. Ensure you complete this step to retain any important data.

  2. Shut down any VMs running on the server. For more information, see Shut Down a VM.

  3. In the Resources pane, select the server and do one of the following:

    • Right-click and select Remove Server from Pool in the Resources pane shortcut menu.
    • In the Pool menu, select Remove Server.
