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.

XenCenter enables you to save search queries as .xensearch files. When you export and save a search query, only the search query is saved, and not the results.

  1. On the Search tab, select Export.
  2. Enter a file name and location.
  3. Click Save to confirm.
  1. On the Search tab, select Import. Alternatively, on the XenCenter File menu, select Import Search.
  2. Browse to locate the exported search file (file name extension .xensearch) and then click Open. The imported search is performed immediately, displaying results on the Search tab.
  1. Click Save.
  2. Specify a Name for the search query.
  3. Choose the Location where to store the search query metadata.
  4. Click Save to confirm.
