Add servers in xen center from other users profile..

Hi,
Our company has take over another company. They have huge Citrix xen virtulization environment consist multiple citrix servers. I had gotomeeting session with their citrix admin, he took remote of a server, opened xencenter and showed me all xen servers. He made me domain admin and full administrator so that i can take a look on that later.
Now when i logged onto that same server and opened xencenter it was totally clean means i would need to add xenservers in my xencenter console one by one.

Is there a way to copy his profiles xencenter configuration on my profile so that i get all xensevers in my xencenter console without adding  them one by one ?

Hi,

It used to be a file in user's profile (so you'd need access to machine where old administrator's XenCenter is). As far as I know this was only possible for older versions of XS (5.5).

How many servers you have. Fact is that you do NOT need to connenct to each and every one as servers are grouped into pools - you only need to connect to one server per pool to manage them all....

You only have to connect to one XenServer/host in the pool and it will show the whole pool.  See this for reference:  http://forums.citrix.com/thread.jspa?threadID=264381

understood but i really dont know even all pool so i am expecting a solution in which i can copy some files from his profile, paste them into my profile and get same view.

Additionally its the same server where citrix admin logged on to demonstrate me..

Can you login with his account and find out all the IPs?  Then just give his account back to him.
