I have spent the past week working on this with no success.  This video looks awfully promising:

I have XenServer on a Mac server and now I want to setup a Mac OS with XenCenter.  I cannot find the option to deploy an OS X desktop.  Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Once again - simply not reading.  I don't need a version of XenCenter for mac - I need to be able to virtualize mac on XenServer using XenCenter.  I doubt this other management console will help.

Mac OS X is not supported on XenServer; check this:

In my original post the link has Citrix show what appears to be the equivalent of what they say they don't support.  Can you explain that?

As it turns out (after discussing with Citrix) it is all in the pipeline.  This is currently an unsupported feature as Mutawadi mentioned.
