Installing Citrix XenServer 6.0.2 hotfixes

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 ( 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.
