Management Agent not installed Ubuntu Server 19.04

Ryan Hutton


Hello All,


I am running XenCenter 8 and I have a Ubuntu Server 19.04 VM running. I have installed the Citrix VM Tools and it seemed to install correctly. Only problem is it is still saying "Management Agent not installed." Not sure how to fix this. I followed the instructions from here: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/xencenter/current-release/vms-installtools.html?utm_campaign=8_0_0_7086&utm_medium=ui_link&utm_source=xencenter


Thank you.

Hey Ryan & welcome to the forums!

Sorry, a bit late, but I was just dealing with similar issues in my environment and stumbled over your thread here. May it help someone else to solve that.

If the guest OS is mentioning missing management tools after the switch to HVM, it might be because some platform settings are missing due to an older template being used while setting up the guest OS initially. Check these:

xe vm-param-get uuid=<vm-uuid> param-name=platform

In my case (Ubuntu 18.04 built loooong time ago) it was one or some of the following:

xe vm-param-set uuid=<vm-uuid> platform:nx=true
xe vm-param-set uuid=<vm-uuid> platform:viridian=false
xe vm-param-set uuid=<vm-uuid> platform:acpi=1
xe vm-param-set uuid=<vm-uuid> platform:device_id=0001

Bfn, Konrad
