Issues Resolved In This Hotfix

This security hotfix addresses the vulnerabilities as described in the Security Bulletin above.

This hotfix also includes the following previously released hotfixes:

Installing the Hotfix

Customers should use either XenCenter or the XenServer Command Line Interface (CLI) to apply this hotfix. As with any software update, back up your data before applying this update. Citrix recommends updating all hosts within a pool sequentially. Upgrading of hosts should be scheduled to minimize the amount of time the pool runs in a “mixed state” where some hosts are upgraded and some are not. Running a mixed pool of updated and non-updated hosts for general operation is not supported.

Note: The attachment to this article is a zip file. It contains the hotfix update package only. Click the following link to download the source code for any modified open source components XS75E004-sources.iso. The source code is not necessary for hotfix installation: it is provided to fulfill licensing obligations.

Installing the Hotfix by using XenCenter

Choose an Installation Mechanism

There are three mechanisms to install a hotfix:

  1. Automated Updates
  2. Download update from Citrix
  3. Select update or Supplemental pack from disk

The Automated Updates feature is available for XenServer Enterprise Edition customers, or to those who have access to XenServer through their XenApp/XenDesktop entitlement. For information about installing a hotfix using the Automated Updates feature, see the section Applying Automated Updates in the XenServer Installation Guide.

For information about installing a hotfix using the Download update from Citrix option, see the section Applying an Update to a Pool in the XenServer Installation Guide.

The following section contains instructions on option (3) installing a hotfix that you have downloaded to disk:

  1. Download the hotfix to a known location on a computer that has XenCenter installed.
  2. Unzip the hotfix zip file and extract the .iso file
  3. In XenCenter, on the Tools menu, select Install Update. This displays the Install Update wizard.
  4. Read the information displayed on the Before You Start page and click Next to start the wizard.
  5. Click Browse to locate the iso file, select XS75E004.iso and then click Open.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the pool or hosts you wish to apply the hotfix to, and then click Next.
  8. The Install Update wizard performs a number of update prechecks, including the space available on the hosts, to ensure that the pool is in a valid configuration state. The wizard also checks whether the hosts need to be rebooted after the update is applied and displays the result.
  9. Follow the on-screen recommendations to resolve any update prechecks that have failed. If you want XenCenter to automatically resolve all failed prechecks, click Resolve All. When the prechecks have been resolved, click Next.

  10. Choose the Update Mode. Review the information displayed on the screen and select an appropriate mode.
  11. Note: If you click Cancel at this stage, the Install Update wizard reverts the changes and removes the update file from the host.

  12. Click Install update to proceed with the installation. The Install Update wizard shows the progress of the update, displaying the major operations that XenCenter performs while updating each host in the pool.
  13. When the update is applied, click Finish to close the wizard.
  14. If you chose to carry out the post-update tasks, do so now.

Installing the Hotfix by using the xe Command Line Interface

  1. Download the hotfix file to a known location.
  2. Extract the .iso file from the zip.
  3. Upload the .iso file to the Pool Master by entering the following commands:

    (Where -s is the Pool Master’s IP address or DNS name.)

    xe -s <server> -u <username> -pw <password> update-upload file-name=<filename>XS75E004.iso

    XenServer assigns the update file a UUID which this command prints. Note the UUID.

    fab426a3-740e-49f5-b702-8080982ad570

  4. Apply the update to all hosts in the pool, specifying the UUID of the update:

    xe update-pool-apply uuid=fab426a3-740e-49f5-b702-8080982ad570

    Alternatively, if you need to update and restart hosts in a rolling manner, you can apply the update file to an individual host by running the following:

    xe update-apply host=<host> uuid=fab426a3-740e-49f5-b702-8080982ad570

  5. Verify that the update was applied by using the update-list command.

    xe update-list -s <server> -u root -pw <password> name-label=XS75E004

    If the update is successful, the hosts field contains the UUIDs of the hosts to which this patch was successfully applied. This should be a complete list of all hosts in the pool.

  6. If the hotfix is applied successfully, restart each host in the pool, starting with the master.

  3. Upload the .iso file to the Pool Master by entering the following commands:

    (Where -s is the Pool Master’s IP address or DNS name.)

    xe -s <server> -u <username> -pw <password> update-upload file-name=<filename>XS70E060.xsupdate

    XenServer assigns the update file a UUID which this command prints. Note the UUID.

    f9fb252e-a576-4417-9a03-84c74c9f2a2b

  4. Apply the update to all hosts in the pool, specifying the UUID of the update:

    xe update-pool-apply uuid=f9fb252e-a576-4417-9a03-84c74c9f2a2b

    Alternatively, if you need to update and restart hosts in a rolling manner, you can apply the update file to an individual host by running the following:

    xe update-apply host=<host> uuid=f9fb252e-a576-4417-9a03-84c74c9f2a2b

  5. Verify that the update was applied by using the update-list command.

    xe update-list -s <server> -u root -pw <password> name-label=XS70E060

    If the update is successful, the hosts field contains the UUIDs of the hosts to which this patch was successfully applied. This should be a complete list of all hosts in the pool.

Hotfix XS70E061 – For XenServer 7.0

Who Should Install This Hotfix?

This is a hotfix for customers running XenServer 7.0.

All customers who are affected by the issues described in CTX236548 – Citrix XenServer Multiple Security Updates should install this hotfix.

Customers MUST install Hotfix XS70E004 before attempting to apply this hotfix.

Note: This hotfix is available only to customers on the Customer Success Services program.

Issues Resolved In This Hotfix

This security hotfix addresses the vulnerabilities as described in the Security Bulletin above.

This hotfix also includes the following previously released hotfixes:

Installing the Hotfix

Customers should use either XenCenter or the XenServer Command Line Interface (CLI) to apply this hotfix. When the installation is complete, restart the server for the update to take effect. As with any software update, back up your data before applying this update. Citrix recommends updating all hosts within a pool sequentially. Upgrading of hosts should be scheduled to minimize the amount of time the pool runs in a “mixed state” where some hosts are upgraded and some are not. Running a mixed pool of updated and non-updated hosts for general operation is not supported.

Note: The attachment to this article is a zip file. It contains the hotfix update package only. Click the following link to download the source code for any modified open source components XS70E061-src-pkgs.tar.bz2. The source code is not necessary for hotfix installation: it is provided to fulfill licensing obligations.

Installing the Hotfix by using XenCenter

Choose an Installation Mechanism

There are three mechanisms to install a hotfix:

  1. Automated Updates
  2. Download update from Citrix
  3. Select update or Supplemental pack from disk

The Automated Updates feature is available for XenServer Enterprise Edition customers, or to those who have access to XenServer through their XenApp/XenDesktop entitlement. For information about installing a hotfix using the Automated Updates feature, see the section Applying Automated Updates in the XenServer Installation Guide.

For information about installing a hotfix using the Download update from Citrix option, see the section Applying an Update to a Pool in the XenServer Installation Guide.

The following section contains instructions on option (3) installing a hotfix that you have downloaded to disk:

  2. Unzip the hotfix zip file and extract the .iso file
  3. In XenCenter, on the Tools menu, select Install Update. This displays the Install Update wizard.
  4. Read the information displayed on the Before You Start page and click Next to start the wizard.
  5. Click Browse to locate the iso file, select XS70E061.xsupdate and then click Open.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the pool or hosts you wish to apply the hotfix to, and then click Next.
  8. The Install Update wizard performs a number of update prechecks, including the space available on the hosts, to ensure that the pool is in a valid configuration state. The wizard also checks whether the hosts need to be rebooted after the update is applied and displays the result.
  9. Follow the on-screen recommendations to resolve any update prechecks that have failed. If you want XenCenter to automatically resolve all failed prechecks, click Resolve All. When the prechecks have been resolved, click Next.

  10. Choose the Update Mode. Review the information displayed on the screen and select an appropriate mode.
  11. Note: If you click Cancel at this stage, the Install Update wizard reverts the changes and removes the update file from the host.

  12. Click Install update to proceed with the installation. The Install Update wizard shows the progress of the update, displaying the major operations that XenCenter performs while updating each host in the pool.
  13. When the update is applied, click Finish to close the wizard.
  14. If you chose to carry out the post-update tasks, do so now.

Installing the Hotfix by using the xe Command Line Interface

  1. Download the hotfix file to a known location.
  2. Extract the .iso file from the zip.
  3. Upload the .iso file to the Pool Master by entering the following commands:

    (Where -s is the Pool Master’s IP address or DNS name.)

    xe -s <server> -u <username> -pw <password> update-upload file-name=<filename>XS70E061.xsupdate

    XenServer assigns the update file a UUID which this command prints. Note the UUID.

    718a41e0-da33-4520-a04f-1da836025ff4

  4. Apply the update to all hosts in the pool, specifying the UUID of the update:

    xe update-pool-apply uuid=718a41e0-da33-4520-a04f-1da836025ff4

    Alternatively, if you need to update and restart hosts in a rolling manner, you can apply the update file to an individual host by running the following:

    xe update-apply host=<host> uuid=718a41e0-da33-4520-a04f-1da836025ff4

    Verify that the update was applied by using the update-list command.

  5. xe update-list -s <server> -u root -pw <password> name-label=XS70E061

    If the update is successful, the hosts field contains the UUIDs of the hosts to which this patch was successfully applied. This should be a complete list of all hosts in the pool.

  6. The hotfix is applied to all hosts in the pool, but it will not take effect until the XAPI service is restarted on all hosts. On the console of each host in the pool beginning with the master, enter the following command to restart the XAPI service:

    xe-toolstack-restart

    Note: When this command is run on the Pool Master, XenCenter will lose connection to the pool. Wait for 30 seconds after losing connection, and then reconnect manually.

This security hotfix addresses the vulnerabilities as described in the Security Bulletin above.

Installing the Hotfix

Customers should use either XenCenter or the XenServer Command Line Interface (CLI) to apply this hotfix. As with any software update, back up your data before applying this update. Citrix recommends updating all hosts within a pool sequentially. Upgrading of hosts should be scheduled to minimize the amount of time the pool runs in a “mixed state” where some hosts are upgraded and some are not. Running a mixed pool of updated and non-updated hosts for general operation is not supported.

Note: The attachment to this article is a zip file. It contains the hotfix update package only. Click the following link to download the source code for any modified open source components XS74E005-sources.iso. The source code is not necessary for hotfix installation: it is provided to fulfill licensing obligations.

Installing the Hotfix by using XenCenter

Choose an Installation Mechanism

There are three mechanisms to install a hotfix:

  1. Automated Updates
  2. Download update from Citrix
  3. Select update or Supplemental pack from disk

The Automated Updates feature is available for XenServer Enterprise Edition customers, or to those who have access to XenServer through their XenApp/XenDesktop entitlement. For information about installing a hotfix using the Automated Updates feature, see the section Applying Automated Updates in the XenServer Installation Guide.

For information about installing a hotfix using the Download update from Citrix option, see the section Applying an Update to a Pool in the XenServer Installation Guide.

The following section contains instructions on option (3) installing a hotfix that you have downloaded to disk:

  1. Download the hotfix to a known location on a computer that has XenCenter installed.
  2. Unzip the hotfix zip file and extract the .iso file
  3. In XenCenter, on the Tools menu, select Install Update. This displays the Install Update wizard.
  4. Read the information displayed on the Before You Start page and click Next to start the wizard.
  5. Click Browse to locate the iso file, select XS74E005.iso and then click Open.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the pool or hosts you wish to apply the hotfix to, and then click Next.
  8. The Install Update wizard performs a number of update prechecks, including the space available on the hosts, to ensure that the pool is in a valid configuration state. The wizard also checks whether the hosts need to be rebooted after the update is applied and displays the result.
  9. Follow the on-screen recommendations to resolve any update prechecks that have failed. If you want XenCenter to automatically resolve all failed prechecks, click Resolve All. When the prechecks have been resolved, click Next.

  10. Choose the Update Mode. Review the information displayed on the screen and select an appropriate mode.
  11. Note: If you click Cancel at this stage, the Install Update wizard reverts the changes and removes the update file from the host.

  12. Click Install update to proceed with the installation. The Install Update wizard shows the progress of the update, displaying the major operations that XenCenter performs while updating each host in the pool.
  13. When the update is applied, click Finish to close the wizard.
  14. If you chose to carry out the post-update tasks, do so now.

Installing the Hotfix by using the xe Command Line Interface

  1. Download the hotfix file to a known location.
  2. Extract the .iso file from the zip.
  3. Upload the .iso file to the Pool Master by entering the following commands:

    (Where -s is the Pool Master’s IP address or DNS name.)

    xe -s <server> -u <username> -pw <password> update-upload file-name=<filename>XS74E005.iso

    XenServer assigns the update file a UUID which this command prints. Note the UUID.

    f03b62b0-dd67-4395-af7c-0b1defacc1d9

  4. Apply the update to all hosts in the pool, specifying the UUID of the update:

    xe update-pool-apply uuid=f03b62b0-dd67-4395-af7c-0b1defacc1d9

    Alternatively, if you need to update and restart hosts in a rolling manner, you can apply the update file to an individual host by running the following:

    xe update-apply host=<name_of_host> uuid=f03b62b0-dd67-4395-af7c-0b1defacc1d9

    Verify that the update was applied by using the update-list command.

  5. xe update-list -s <server> -u root -pw <password> name-label=XS74E005

    If the update is successful, the hosts field contains the UUIDs of the hosts to which this patch was successfully applied. This should be a complete list of all hosts in the pool.

  6. The hotfix is applied to all hosts in the pool, but it will not take effect until the XAPI service is restarted on all hosts. On the console of each host in the pool beginning with the master, enter the following command to restart the XAPI service:

    xe-toolstack-restart

    Note: When this command is run on the Pool Master, XenCenter will lose connection to the pool. Wait for 30 seconds after losing connection, and then reconnect manually.
