Use Command Center to provision NetScaler VPX virtual appliances on XenServers and begin managing the NetScaler VPX instances.
You can install one or more instances of NetScaler VPX on a XenServer from the Command Center client by using a NetScaler VPX template. The number of instances that you can install depends on the amount of memory available on the hardware that is running XenServer.
The first instance of NetScaler VPX must be installed on your XenServer using XenCenter. Then, create a NetScaler VPX template on the XenServer. Make sure that the template name contains the word “NetScaler” as part of the name string, for example, “NetScaler Virtual Appliance”. Command Center recognizes only template names with “NetScaler” in the string as NetScaler VPX templates.
Add the IP address of your XenServer device to your Command Center and set it for discovery.
After the XenServer is discovered, you can provision the NetScaler VPX devices with network attributes (NSIP, Netmask, Gateway) on the XenServer from the Command Center client.
Command Center implicitly deploys NetScaler VPX devices on the XenServer, and then discovers the NetScaler VPX devices for monitoring and management.
Create a custom task and push traffic configuration to the VPX virtual appliances from Command Center. Your provisioning is complete!
Now, begin managing these virtual appliances like any other NetScaler appliance.
Note: To manage XenServer, use the XenCenter client.
