User cannot see any servers - how to edit permissions
I've set up Xen Orchestra with myself as Admin and one of my staff with 'user'.
Today when they logged on, they couldn't see any servers. When I changed them to 'Admin' all VM's showed.
Where do I control what VM's the 'User' account can see ?
Thanks, I'd come to this conclusion after posting. I must have done this when I was using a free trial as it was all working until the weekend when we updated hardware and now have new pools - so he can't see the new pools (and the old pools have gone). I did find an error in the logs about permissions, so this all ties up.
Followup question: Do you have Xen Orchestra just running as a VM in the pool or on it's own server ?
Reason: Due to CPU hardware differences, I wasn't able to do a live migration between our old servers and new. This meant shutting down each VM, moving and then starting up again. I obviously couldn't do this with the VM running Xen Orchestra and used XCP-ng Centre app (confession, I ended up doing ~90% of moves via the app. I'd tried using Xen Orchestra but the extra clicks involved alone made an already laborious task more so).
@kent For heterogeneous host, you can use warm migration now: https://xen-orchestra.com/blog/warm-migration-with-xen-orchestra/
Running Xen Orchestra in a VM is the way to go, and, you can move your XO VM with XO, it's working
Thanks for this - I wasn't aware of this option. However, it's dimmed out for me and I see that this is an 'Enterprise' only feature.
- You can ask for a trial so you can do it the time you need
- If you use XO from the sources, you will have the feature for free (but without support/updater and such)
