Hello Rodrigo - We have good VX9000 Virtual Controller Installation Guide that covers this install process. Here is the link where this guide is posted:

Hi Rodrigo - the reference to XEN is noted on page 4 of the VX9000 Installation guide noting "Installing the VX Virtualized Controller on a Hypervisor"

Ensure a Hypervisor (ESXi, Xen, Hyper V) is installed in your server environment or the downloaded .iso
image will not run.

Here is additional information noted in this official KCS article 🙂

Does the VX-9000 support XenServer v7 for VM installation?

hi!!

I'm reading the last doc and previous doc. In the first doc dont show anything about resource for Xen, CPU, Disk, etc... Can extrapolate from Hyper-V or VMware.

If use the option other install media, the installation is extreme slowly, even if put 4GB, 4 CPU and 10GB for disk.

Is possible try to improve the installation iso for Xen? When install showme some advance and i see info about detecting Xen, disk type xvda, etc... xentool preinstalled is better. That permit use in the VM optimization like vmotion, etc...

Thx

I have a Xen server and I have no issues installing VX9000. Yes its slower install than VMware but still not super slow. I do have my iso files in a storage repository on the Xen server. What is your vm build process?
