Which ist the recommendet way to update XenServer 7.2 Farms to Version 8.0

Andre Richter



we have serveral Xen 7.2 Farms - free Editions.

Now we bought licenses for Standart and Enterprise Edition and want to bringt up our farms to Hypervisor 8.0

So what the recommended way to do this?
Should we take all minor updates e.g. 7.3 7.4 7.5 .... to 8.0 or is it no problem to patch 8.0 just hard on our outdatet 7.2 ?

When running CR you are suppose to keep on the latest version as they are released. It would be

okay to upgrade through all of those versions if you have them, but from the Citrix perspective

the proper way would be to install 8.0 clean which means the possibility of doing vm export/imports.

With pools you could kick serves out and install clean and do storage migrations since you have 

licenses for that. If you don't need the latest and greatest features (like GPU support), consider 

staying with 7.1 LTSR so you can just run updates and not be required to upgrade on every single

version release.
