I have a xenserver 6.1 pool with 3 hosts. 1 of the hosts has been having slowness issues. Currently all three hosts have the same updates applied, however there now are more updates. I have all the vm's moved off the host in question. I want to update that host ONLY with the updates and leave the other 2 alone right now. I intend to update those in near future. Can this be done on 1 of the hosts? This host I want ot update is not the Pool Master.

I know I have to disable HA first, however I don't want it to do a rolling upgrade b/c they are in production right now and being used. Thanks in Advance

you have to patch the pool-master first!
you can make the problem-server to the pool-master, free them from vm's and run the update.
After updating the server you can move VM's TO this server only ... not away from the server without powering off.

by the way ... i would reinstall the one suspicious server.
