XenCenter

Activate/deactivate a Virtual Network Interface

Note:

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.

You can activate or deactivate a virtual network interface on a running VM when the VM meets the following conditions:

  • The VM is not suspended.
  • The VM must have XenServer VM Tools installed.

To activate (“plug”) or deactivate (“unplug”) a virtual network interface:

  1. On the VM’s Networking tab, select the interface.
  2. Click the button labeled Activate or Deactivate.
