How to enable autostart feature on xenserver virtual machine

XenServer is one of virtualisation software that is used worldwide. Unfortunately, on my XenServer version (6.x) the autostart feature was removed from XenCenter GUI. Therefore we need to configure it from CLI:

  1. execute “xe pool-list” to display uuid (RO)
    uuid (RO) : blablabla -> copy this number
  2. execute “xe pool-param-set uuid=blablabla other-config:auto_poweron=true” to turn on the autostart
  3. execute “xe vm-list” to display the UUID of VM. example:
    uuid (RO) : blablabla -> copy this number
    name-label ( RW): testing-server
    power-state ( RO): running
  4. execute “xe vm-param-set uuid=blablabla other-config:auto_poweron=true” to turn on autostart of the VM

that’s all
