-- No

Citrix Xenserver support for Virt-Who

Patch with Citrix Xenserver support included.. Could we please add this to the officiel packages????

It also need the python XenAPI ( https://pypi.python.org/pypi/XenAPI) to be packaged.... but that should be pretty straight forward....

There is already xenserver support in the upstream repository:

Comment 5 Martin Juhl 2016-02-05 04:26:53 EST

Can we get the support included in RHEL????
Comment 6 Radek Novacek 2016-02-09 02:26:41 EST
Martin, adding xenserver support is currently planned for RHEL-7.3.
