    It's live 🙂 Thanks for the feedback!


  • XCP-ng Team

    New security update candidate for the Xen package in XCP-ng!

    Prompt feedback needed

    So, a new patch of security patches were released for the Xen hypervisor that is at the core of XCP-ng. Updates candidates are available for XCP-ng 8.1 and in the making for XCP-ng 8.0.

    What's being fixed

    Mostly flaws allowing privileged guest processes may crash the host under certain conditions.

    XCP-ng 8.1

    • Update with yum update xen-dom0-libs xen-dom0-tools xen-hypervisor xen-libs xen-tools --enablerepo=xcp-ng-testing
    • Reboot.
    • Check that your host(s) still work (Spoiler: they will).
    • Report here
    • Receive our gratitude

    XCP-ng 8.0

    Coming soon



  • @stormi Updated a D54250WYK / i5-4250U / 16GB / XCP-ng 8.1 fully patched
    Host is indeed working and VMs started without any issues.
    Will try on my new R720 later, but I am confident that it will work as well.
    Nice work as always 👍

    Edit: Updated a Dell R720 / dual Intel Xeon CPU E5-2640 v2 / 128 GB / XCP-ng 8.1 fully patched as well. All good.



  • The bug/security patches upstream never seem to end. Seems like since April all you guys have had time for is this...


  • XCP-ng Team

    The update for XCP-ng 8.1 has now been pushed to the official updates repositories.

    The update for XCP-ng 8.0 is now available for testing:

    • Update with yum update xen-dom0-libs xen-dom0-tools xen-hypervisor xen-libs xen-tools --enablerepo=xcp-ng-testing
    • Reboot.
    • Check that your host(s) still work (Spoiler: they will).
    • Report here
    • Receive our gratitude

  • XCP-ng Team

    New call for testing the XCP-ng 8.0 update candidate. I'd like to publish it today.



  • @stormi I tried insalling the 8.0 update with the command you have listed but nothing installs on the server

     yum update xen-dom0-libs xen-dom0-tools xen-hypervisor xen-libs xen-tools --enablerepo=xcp-ng-testing

    I just pushed the update to the official updates repository. Maybe you installed it already, if you ran yum update.

  • @stormi Yup, I did just before trying to install the test update so I must have gotten it after you published. Everything seems to be working fine here afterward.
