When you have XenServer 6.0.2 installed before they pulled it from the download site (like me) you can choose to either re-install the new version (220.127.116.11) or to download the 2 hotfixes Citrix has released. I choose the latter and I‘ll show you how you can install and upload the hotfixes to your XenServer.
First of all download the 2 hotfixes (XS602E001 and XS602E002) from the Citrix download page. Save the 2 files to a location of your choice.
For the best results and the least problems it’s best to update the XenServer 1 update at a time. So select 1 update per run.
Open XenCenter and go to “Tools’ and “Install software update”.
Click “Next” on the first screen to select the update.
Click “Add” to open the dialogbox to select the update.
Select the update (start with the XS602E001) and select “Open”.
Click next to continue the upload of the update.
Select the XenServer you want to update. If you have multiple XenServers select to servers you want to upgrade and click “Next” to continue.
The upload screen appears.
Pre-upgrade checks are being run. If any problems appear please solve these issues and try again. If no issues occur click “Next” to continue the upgrade.
Upgrade is started. XenServer will be rebooted prior to starting the real upgrade.
Upgrade process is shown.
XenServer agent is restarted, please reconnect to XenCenter.
Upgrade is finished. Click “Finish” to close the upgrade screen.
Repeat the previous steps to install the XS602E002 patch.
Hope this step-by-step guide helped you with the install and upgrade of your XenServer to the latest version.
