Installing CentOS 6.2 on XenServer 6.0

Choose to install from URL, and enter the following URL (or your nearest mirror equivalent): http://mirror01.th.ifl.net/centos/6.2/os/x86_64/

The installer is looking for the following path: isolinux/isolinux.cfg

Choose to start VNC (as per: http://forums.citrix.com/thread.jspa?threadID=302677)

Start up your VNC client (eg tightVNC), connect to <IP>:1, put in your password

Once you’ve finished the installation you can install XenServer Tools:

  1. Put the XS Tools cd into the VM cd drive
  2. mkdir /mnt/xs-tools
  3. mount /dev/xvdd /mnt/xs-tools
  4. bash /mnt/xs-tools/Linux/install.sh

This should auto-detect your OS, install required packages, and ask you to reboot the machine.
