I've added XenServer 6.2 to our PXE/TFTP server. Everything went fine, but I cannot install XenServer as is. We get the XCP version instead of XenServer 6.2. Is this supposed to be normal?

Here are my configuration files:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <admin-interface name="eth0" proto="dhcp" />
    <source type="url"></source>


label E
    kernel mboot.c32
    append xenserver/xen.gz watchdog com1=115200,8n1i console=com1,tty --- xenserver/vmlinuz root=/dev/ram0 console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 ramdisk_size=32758 answerfile= --- xenserver/install.img

Folder structure inside /srv/repos/xenserver:

    /srv/repos/xenserver# ls
    answerfile packages.main packages.transfer-vm packages.xenserver

The folder packages.xenserver appears to be ignored, since only the packages.main are installed. I've tried putting the following line in the answerfile, but it failed:

<source type="url"></source>

Any help is appreciated.

I've found the solution.

On the official Citrix Documentation ( theres no mention about copying the XS-REPOSITORY-LIST to the path of local repository. In my case /srv/repos/xenserver.

With this file in the correct place, everything was installed correctly through the network.
