How to Install XenServer Tools in a Custom Path

Summary

This article describes how to install XenServer Tools to a custom path by using the command line parameters.

The Windows Para Virtualized drivers are installed by default to C:\Program Files\Citrix\XenTools (or for 64bit Windows C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\XenTools ) directory in the virtual machine.

Requirements

  • The XenServer Tools installation program (xensetup.exe) is available within XenCenter using the built-in xs-tools.iso and mounting it to the virtual machine or from the XenServer installation CD.
  • Knowing the custom path in a virtual machine, where you want to install the XenServer Tools software.

Procedure

To install XenServer tools to a custom path by using command line parameters, complete the following tasks:

  • Run the following command with the command line parameter from the installer program path:
    [installer path]\xensetup.exe /D=[directory you want to install to]

    For example:
    d:\xensetup.exe /D=e:\AppServer\Citrix\XenTools

    where e:\AppServer\Citrix\XenTools is “XenServer Tools” custom install path in the virtual machine.
  • Run the following command with the relevant command line parameters to include the additional options:
    – For a silent installation (/S),
    – And/or to not reboot after installation (/norestart)
    Following are the sample commands:
    d:\xensetup.exe /S /norestart /D=e:\AppServer\Citrix\XenTools

    where e:\AppServer\Citrix\XenTools is “XenServer Tools” custom install path in the virtual machine.
    Note
    : The parameter “/D=“, would be included as the last argument in the command.
