Just insert the ISO and follow instructions. You'll have an upgrade panel, just select it and that's it!

After a reboot, you'll be on XCP-ng while keeping all your previous settings (Storage, VMs…)

No physical access to the XenServer host?

Please check our documentation for advanced upgrade cases.

Security matters: all our repositories, ISOs and packages are signed with a GPG key. This key is available here:

Then, you can follow our guide on how to check authenticity of our ISO, and even any XCP-ng RPM repository or mirror.

We strongly suggest to download only the current release. This is only for historical purpose.

You can find all previous XCP-ng releases here:

Just type this into your XCP-ng console:

bash -c "$(curl -s"

This will deploy a small VM doing all the management and backup for your XCP-ng. Follow instructions given on the screen, and you're up and running!

Success Story - From Kickstarter to Datacenter

Initially a fork of XenServer, XCP-ng made something some people thought would be impossible: gathering a large community around a new virtualization platform in those modern days.
