Citrix Xen Server – Install Xen Server Tool on Debian/Ubuntu

You first need to find out the physical path to the DVD drive by running:

sudo lsblk -f

The output can look like this:

NAME                 FSTYPE      LABEL           UUID                                   MOUNTPOINT

sr0                  iso9660     XenServer Tools 2017-02-14-21-45-52-00


├─xvda1              ext2                        b874af3a-24ec-454f-a802-0fee2945e388   /boot


└─xvda5              LVM2_member                 LOmK2X-RYRD-GR8s-Guzv-kXFN-e3Y8-gSVdgM

├─nginx–vg-root   ext4                        2dd0c496-ea05-4027-bf90-84ceb94d2f3a   /

└─nginx–vg-swap_1 swap                        77064139-1d50-4344-ade7-dacec1e62c9b   [SWAP]

#As you can see, I already “inserted” the Xen Tools disk and the drive has /dev/sr0 physical path. Then, you need to create a directory where the drive will be mounted and then mount it:

$ sudo mkdir /mnt/dvd

$ sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/dvd

mount: /dev/sr0 is write-protected, mounting read-only

#Then, run the installer

cd /mnt/dvd/Linux

sudo ./
