Citrix is pleased to announce the release of the second cumulative update (CU2) for XenServer 7.1.

This update, which Citrix recommends applying at your earliest convenience, is strictly for customers running XenServer 7.1 LTSR. Other than introducing a technical preview for running Windows Server 2019 as a Guest OS, and support for additional Guest OSes (see 7.1 CU2 Release Notes), this update includes fixes only. No new features are introduced with this update.

As a reminder, the LTSR release is designed for customers looking for product longevity (5+ years support) and feature stability, whereas the CR release is ideal for customers interested in acquiring access to new features as they are made available (approximately every quarter). You can find more information on the differences between the two release models here.

To download XenServer 7.1 CU2, which can be installed using the Base Installation ISO or the Update ISO, visit and log in with your Citrix account credentials. Citrix recommends reading the XenServer 7.1 Release Notes prior to installing the update.
