    Re: XenServer how to connect ISO image for installation host

    I sign this once and for all, here are the steps to follow to obtain a local or remote library of ISO images available for installation of the host:

    Configure the NFS export

    echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports "/ echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports / echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports / echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports / iso_import * echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports no_root_squash, echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports / echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports / echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exp
    Start the NFS daemons:
    service nfs start
    service portmap start
    Configuring the NFS daemons to start automatically:
    chkconfig --level 345 nfs on
    chkconfig --level 345 portmap on
    Mount the repository so that it is available as a "DVD drive":


    xe-mount-iso-sr 127.0.0.1:/var/opt/xen/iso_import 127.0.0.1: / xe-mount-iso-sr 127.0.0.1:/var/opt/xen/iso_import / xe-mount-iso-sr 127.0.0.1:/var/opt/xen/iso_import / xe-mount-iso-sr 127.0.0.1:/var/opt/xen/iso_import / iso_import xe-mount-iso-sr 127.0.0.1:/var/opt/xen/iso_import

    Thanks to Shubodh for their post. I relied on it though it seemed like there were some copy/paste issues. Here are the commands I used to get my ISO to show up in XenCenter:

    echo "/var/opt/xen/iso_import *(rw,no_root_squash,sync)" > /etc/exports
    service nfs start
    service portmap start
    chkconfig --level 345 nfs on
    chkconfig --level 345 portmap on
    xe-mount-iso-sr 127.0.0.1:/var/opt/xen/iso_import/
    cp MY_OS_CD.iso /var/opt/xen/iso_import/
    Verify that the mount is seen as storage:
    xe sr-list
    You should see the following:
    ... name-label ( RW): Remote ISO Library ...
    Cheers.
