Xen Sever VM boot policy with XenToolBox

Keep Calm and Carry On

 

AVOID HEADACHES BY ESTABLISHING A POLICY OS AUTO-START

XenToolBox incorporates a management system by self-starting simple and intuitive. Select with just one click the VM for which you would like to set the auto-run function.

Set up the order in which you would like the VM of your Pool to be run. For this, simply put the VM in a list ordering them by priority, the first VM having the highest priority and the last one the lowest.

The auto run can be amended at any time.

KEEP ORDER AFTER AN UNPLANNED SHUTDOWN

Secure the infrastructure of your Pool to a blackout of their VM, for example, caused by a power failure.
Plan an auto-run policy establishing a delay for the start of each VM. During the delay, all the resources and services that the machine needs are enabled during the delay, and ensuring that they are ready at boot time

XenToolBox auto-run function gets priority over the auto-start function that Xen sets by default. When we include a VM in a XenToolBox boot planning, the auto-start function gets deactivated. In the same way, when a VM is deleted from a XenToolBox boot planning, the auto-start function that was set in Xen, gets re-activated.
