Citrix Releases Service Pack 1 for XenClient 1.0 Client Virtualization


Citrix just released Service Pack 1 for XenClient 1.0! This update is basically maintenance release that includes over 100 fixes for both the XenClient hypervisor and the Synchronizer virtual appliance. This update brings bug fixes, stability and speed improvements, and it also includes a few new features.

I was lucky enough to get a copy last night and give it a go! After a day of working on my XenClient machine I’ve noticed boot times and overall performance to be much better! Although, I did experience an issue where my NFS Image repository disappeared from the list and the Disk Space button no longer works.   However, everything else seems to be functioning just fine, if not better than before.  If you spot this issue and/or any others please leave a comment below!
