Has anyone managed to get Cloudlinux working 100% with XenServer 6.0.2 and in particular, the XenServer tools?

You can\'t use the CentOS 6.2 template because Cloudlinux doesn\'t support paravirtuzliation. So to get around this you use the \"Other install media\" option when setting up the VM.

The issue I\'m having is with the XenServer tools and in particular, the \"xe-linux-distribution\"

/usr/sbin/xe-linux-distribution returns nothing because it\'s reading /etc/redhat-release and checking for centos or redhat and obviously doesn\'t know what to do with Cloudlinux.

I\'ve tried editing the sed check in the \"/usr/sbin/xe-linux-distribution\" script and adding Cloudlinux to it, but my regex knowledge is a bit limiting.

Has anyone managed to get the XenServer Tools working in Cloudlinux 6.2?

Yes, just change /etc/redhat-release to Say RedHat instead of CloudLinux

Ah yes, very clever, except that didn\'t fix my issue, so I would assume my issue is not Cloudlinux related but rather XenServer related.

The error I\'m getting in the XenCenter is \"XenServer Tools out of date (version 6.0 installed)\"

dispite this hardware node being a clean 6.0.2 installation and only have one version of the XenServer tools (the latest one).

thanks for the help.

The issue is related to this which also affects CentOS / Redhat / Cloudlinux 6.2 (for those finding this problem on Google).
