If you want to create ISO repository using CIFS(windows file sharing), then go to Xencenter>Storage>New Storage repository- CIFS.(Create a share on your computer, give username and password to it, proper access). Now in location field, give the share name \\servername\sharename. The share will now appear in the xencenter as a storage. Using which you can build OS.


See this if you do not want to use CIFS.

Hi Baraj,

We would like to access the ISO library from the server, not our local machine. As the machine is located in datacentre, uploading a 3gig ISO would take a very long time.

Thanks :)

Did you test as how much time it takes for some MBs? If it's fast then you can try this option.

If you have xenserver where your datacenter exists then you can upload as much as gbs. Good if they are in same network.
