Reattaching an SR


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.

A detached storage device has no association with any pool or server, but the data stored on it is preserved. When you reattach an SR to a managed server, provide the storage configuration information in the same way as when you add an SR.

To reattach a detached SR

  1. Select the detached SR in the Resources pane and then do one of the following:
    • Right-click and select Reattach Storage Repository on the Resources pane shortcut menu.
    • On the Storage menu, select Reattach Storage Repository.
  2. Enter the required configuration information in the same way as when you add an SR. See:
  3. Click Finish to complete the SR configuration and close the wizard.
