XenServer Backup Software "Alike" from QuorumSoft

January 6, 2010 3 comments

I received an interesting comment to my post XenServer 5.5 Update 1 available!. Tribble mentioned a backup tool called "Alike". This tool is able to support the ’storage leaf coalesce’ (aka. snapshot cleanup) abilities from XenServer 5.5 Update 1.
There is also a free edition available, so this is very cool stuff for XenServer users…
Check the website and give it a try, I will also test "Alike" and post my experiences.

Web Interface 5.2 breaks Desktop Viewer

January 6, 2010 1 comment

We used Web Interface 5.1.2 and the current Citrix Online Plug-in 11.2. I like the new cool desktop viewer and it’s features like changing the screen resolution "on the fly". But after upgrading to Web Interface 5.2 the desktop session launched with the Online Plug-in (as it was called in the title bar). The new features of the desktop viewer were gone…

The reason was a missing entry in the webinterface.conf file on the Citrix Web Interface server. Just add the line "ShowDesktopViewer=On" and the desktop viewer works as expected.



Happy new year and all the best for 2010!
