Clean up "old version of guest-tools.iso"

  • Hi,

    I noticed when using XOA and want to attach an iso to a vm (most of the times the guest-tools), there is a long list of previous versions of the guest-tools visible before I can select the actual version.
    XCPng-center does not show the "old version of guest-tools.iso" entries.

    In XOA I can see there is a storage repository "XCP-ng Tools ISOs" containing the old and actual ISO's, but when I try to delete the old ones I get an error "SR_OPERATION_NOT_SUPPORTED(OpaqueRef:4143d1cc-96b6-aed3-30b8-51aaeb78ff54)"
    (This repository is not visible in xcpng-center by the way)

    Is there a way to clean up the old guest-tool iso's, or instruct xoa not to show the old version entries just like xcpng-center?

    That's a good question, IDK. There is the same behavior on XenServer.

  • @HeMaN - if you're still looking to clean up the old guest-tools.iso, give this a try:

    xe vdi-list sr-uuid=<uuid of XCP-ng Tools SR>

    This will give you a list of VIDs. Find the one you want to remove and then execute:

    xe vdi-forget uuid=<uuid of VID>

    Rinse and repeat till all the old guest tools are removed and you won't see them in XOA.

    Thank you for your answer, this worked great.
    Was able to clean the entire list of old versions this way.
