XSDT – XenServer Deployment Toolkit
At the Citrix Masterclass 19th September 2012, Citrix showed an exciting product announcement from the community.
2 guys from KPN Consulting have created an awesome tool for easying the deployment of Citrix XenServers. Installing multiple XenServers can be time consuming and XSDT solves this by automating the deployment of XenServers. The largest XenDesktop deployment in the netherlands is running on XenServers built with this tool, so thats pretty cool.
Be aware its on your own risk using this great tool.
The XSDT story
XSDT is an initiative developed by consultants from KPN Consulting in The Netherlands.
KPN developed XSDT because we needed a tool to deploy a lot of XenServers and were too lazy to do it manually… That’s how they started off anyway.
To get XSDT up and running you need following:
- A domain joined Windows Server 2008R2
- A Windows File Server
- A FTP server
1. Deploying your server with XSDT
2. XSDT installation
3. XSDT configuration

the original tool was not specifically designed for 6.02 but xsdt was build on this version. So I guess if you want to you could probably deploy 5.6 with it its all just in the sources 😉
XSDT is now ready (or has been ready for some time really) for XS6.1! go go gadget copter!
