Hotfix XS602E011 for XenServer 6.0.2

Citrix has released hotfix number 11 for XenServer 6.0.2.

This hotfix resolves the following issues:

  1. Attempts to read the metadata volume of an attached Storage Repository (SR) after the reboot of a multipath-enabled XenServer host, can cause an error and display the Error in Metadata volume Operation on SR error message.
  2. Storage may take several minutes to become available when using the Dell™ PowerVault™ MD32xxi Storage Arrays with LVMoiSCSI.
  3. XenServer may not discover all available LUNs when using wildcard IQN on storage arrays which do not support IQNs across multiple target portals. This occurs when using iSCSI storage arrays with multiple controllers, each managing their own LUNs.
  4. When booting a XenServer host, or re-attaching an iSCSI SR that contains a failed iSCSI path, the SR may fail to connect.

In addition, this hotfix also includes fixes released in CTX132823 – Hotfix XS602E001 – For XenServer 6.0.2, CTX133166 – Hotfix XS602E003 – For XenServer 6.0.2, CTX133812 – Hotfix XS602E005 – For XenServer 6.0.2 and CTX134479 – Hotfix XS602E007 – For XenServer 6.0.2. This means that you will not have to install these hotfixes before you can implement this hotfix. Only reason I see this is usefull is in a clean install of XenServer 6.0.2. In an existing environment I dare to hope you have already implemented these hotfixes by now… Continue reading “Hotfix XS602E011 for XenServer 6.0.2”
