Who Should Install This Hotfix?

This is a hotfix for customers running XenServer 6.0.2. All customers who are affected by the issues described in CTX135777 – Citrix XenServer Multiple Security Updates should install this hotfix.

Issue Resolved In This Hotfix

This security hotfix addresses the vulnerabilities as described in the Security Bulletin above.

In addition, this hotfix also includes the following previously released hotfixes.

Installing the Hotfix

Customers should use either XenCenter or the XenServer Command Line Interface (CLI) to install this update. Once the update has installed, the server must be restarted for it to take effect. As with any software update, please back up your data before applying this hotfix. Citrix recommends updating all hosts within a pool sequentially. Upgrading of hosts should be scheduled to minimize the amount of time the pool runs in a "mixed state" where some hosts have been upgraded and some have not. Running a mixed pool of updated and non-updated hosts for general operation is not supported.

Installing the update using XenCenter

  1. Download the update to a known location on a computer that has XenCenter installed.
  2. In XenCenter, on the Tools menu, select Install Update. This displays the Install Update wizard.
  3. Click Next to start the Wizard.
  4. Click Add to upload a new update.
  5. Browse to the location where you downloaded the hotfix, select it, and then click Open.
  6. From the list of updates select XS602E016.update and then click Next.
  7. Select the hosts you wish to apply the hotfix to, and then click Next.
  8. Follow the recommendations to resolve any upgrade prechecks and then click Next.
  9. Choose how to perform post-update tasks. In the Post update options section, select automatically or manually, and then click Install update.
  10. When the installation process is complete, click Finish to exit the wizard.
  11. NOTES:

    • Customers who selected to manually perform the post-update tasks, must ensure to do so after installing the hotfix.
    • If customers selected to automatically perform the post-update tasks, the XenCenter controlled upgrade process reboots each host sequentially starting with the Pool Master, where possible VMs will be migrated to other running hosts to avoid VM downtime. When the Pool Master is being rebooted, XenCenter will be unable to monitor the pool.

    Installing the update using the xe Command Line Interface

    1. Download the update file to a known location.
    2. Extract the xsupdate file from the zip.
    3. Upload the xsupdate file to the Pool Master by entering the following commands:
      (Where hostname is the Pool Master's IP address or DNS name.)
      xe patch-upload -s <hostname> -u root -pw <password> file-name=<path_to_update_file>\XS602E016.xsupdate
      XenServer assigns the update file a UUID which this command prints. Note the UUID.

    4. Apply the hotfix to all hosts in the pool, specifying the UUID of the hotfix:
      xe -s <hostname> -u root -pw <password> patch-pool-apply uuid=<e809f1a8-a45e-45ba-af52-6cc0c252c8e2>
    5. Verify that the update was applied by using the patch-list command.
      xe patch-list -s <hostname> -u root -pw <password> name-label=XS602E016
      If the update has been successful, the hosts field will contain the UUIDs of the hosts this patch was successfully applied to. This should be a complete list of all hosts in the pool.
    6. To verify in XenCenter that the update has been applied correctly, select the Pool, and then click the General tab. This displays the Pool properties. In the Updates section, ensure that the update is listed as Applied.
    7. The hotfix is applied to all hosts in the pool, but it will not take effect until each host has been rebooted. For each host, migrate the VMs that you wish to keep running, and shutdown the remaining VMs before rebooting the host.
