How to scan a Citrix XenServer

Citrix scanning is a feature introduced in Lansweeper 7.0. If you are using an older Lansweeper release, you will need to update by following the instructions in this knowledge base article.
Not all Lansweeper licenses support Citrix scanning. Please visit this page for more information.

Lansweeper supports scanning of Citrix XenServers. Scanned Citrix XenServer data includes installed XenServer guests, disks, physical interfaces, storage, crash dumps, CPUs, pool information and more. If the Citrix XenServer hosts are scanned, they will also link to the Lansweeper webpages of the XenServer guest assets.

To scan a Citrix XenServer, do the following:

  1. Make sure you meet the Citrix scanning requirements.
  2. Submit your server's IP range for scanning by hitting the Add Scanning Target button in the Scanning\Scanning Targets section of the console. If you have multiple scanning servers, there will be a separate configuration tab for each server. When submitting your range, you will be asked to specify a scanning schedule.

  3. Submit your Citrix username and password as a credential in the Scanning\Scanning Credentials section of the web console. You can use the same username and password for all Citrix XenServers by editing the Global Citrix credential or submit a non-global credential with the Add new Credential button.
