Add ISO image storage repository on XenServer

If you have used VMware ESXI, its very easy to upload ISO files to the data store and create VMs. With Citrix XenServer, you must create your own ISO repository to upload ISO files.

Create ISO directory

Access your XenServer via ssh and create a directory that will hold ISO images.

mkdir /var/opt/ISO

Use FTP client like WinSCP to copy ISO files to above directory.

Create repository

Now its time to register our new directory as storage repository with xenserver

xe sr-create name-label=ISO_IMAGES_LOCAL type=iso device-config:location=/var/opt/ISO device-config:legacy_mode=true content-type=iso

The new storage repository was created. To list your XenServer storage repository run:

xe sr-list
