Creating local ISO storage on XenServer

Table of Contents

This is a short how to create a local ISO storage on XenServer.

You can use WinSCP to drop ISOs in /var/opt/xen/iso_import.

Go to the console and type

mkdir -p /var/opt/xen
mkdir -p /var/opt/xen/iso_import
xe sr-create name-label=”Local ISO Storage” type=iso device-config:location=/var/opt/xen/iso_import device-config:legacy_mode=true content-type=iso

Then the new SR should appear in your Xencenter console.
