Everyone, please welcome my daughter Diana into the world.

This guide assumes you already have a running Ubuntu 15.10 system on which you want to configure Xen Orchestra, everything else is documented below.
TL;DR: Run this command as root on Ubuntu 15.10...
sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/scottalanmiller/xenorchestra_installer/master/xo_install.sh | bash
During the installation of your OS, you'll want to create a user outside of root, I made my user account xoadmin
How to Install Xen Orchestra Source on Ubuntu 15.10 (self compiled) AKA MANUAL installation
sudo apt-get install --yes nfs-common curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_5.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install --yes nodejs curl -o /usr/local/bin/n https://raw.githubusercontent.com/visionmedia/n/master/bin/n chmod +x /usr/local/bin/n n stable node -v npm -v sudo apt-get install --yes build-essential redis-server libpng-dev git python-minimal git clone -b stable https://github.com/vatesfr/xo-server git clone -b stable https://github.com/vatesfr/xo-web cd xo-server sudo npm install && npm run build cp sample.config.yaml .xo-server.yaml nano .xo-server.yaml #Edit and uncomment it to have the right path to XO-Web, because XO-Server embeds an HTTP server (we assume that XO-Server and XO-Web are on the same directory). It's near the end of the file: # mounts: '/': '../home/xoadmin/xo-web/dist/ # save and exit cd ~ cd ../xo-web sudo npm i [email protected] sudo npm install sudo npm run build cd ../xo-server sudo npm start
The scripted installation thanks to @scottalanmiller
Below is the preferred Installation method. It includes the systemctl xo-server.service written by @Danp
sudo bash <password> sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/scottalanmiller/xenorchestra_installer/master/xo_install.sh | bash <password>
In your favorite web-browser go to this VM's IP Address, login with the default user: [email protected] and "admin" for the password. Update your Login Details!!
Add your Xen Server(s) and go to town.
Automatically Start XO at Boot - See this Post by @Danp Also copied below.
Create a file in /etc/systemd/system/xo-server.service and enter the below into it.
# systemd service for XO-Server. [Unit] Description= XO Server After=network-online.target [Service] WorkingDirectory=/opt/xo-server/ ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/node ./bin/xo-server Restart=always SyslogIdentifier=xo-server [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Save the file, and then run to enable the service at start up.
sudo systemctl enable xo-server.service
To monitor the service you can then run
journalctl -u xo-server -f -n 50
For everyone on the newer releases of the "stable build" at least as of April-8-2016 there appears to be a bug when attempting to mount an NFS share; to resolve this follow the short process below
Replacing nfs-server-ip-address with the actual IP of the remote server and the remote-# with whatever is listed on your console.

@BradfromxByte thank you for dealing with all of the back and forth and kick ass servers.
It's been a little while. I can only buy them every 9 months or so since they aren't sold in this part of the world.
Weird that they would go up in price when no new models have come out in so long.
More like they aren't shipped to those parts of the world, but also it isn't unusual that the price has gone through the roof on these.
Supply and demand. . .
There are likely thousands of these sitting on a dock/cargo ship just waiting to get delivered to the outlets that sell em.
@JaredBusch Any update?
Waiting on the user to schedule time.
the best part, waiting. . . lol
Well have a good weekend.
100 Days. The wine making simulator is free today.
Use a simulator or try your hand at Toilet Bowl Wine. . . lol
@JaredBusch I get it, 100%.
I had a customers entire production shop (who actually has public IP address subnet for their LAN) who came to a complete halt calling in for assistance in sorting out what the hell happened.
Microsoft claimed this was a security feature. . .
is K mapped with a name or an IP?
I assume it will work when I remap it with the DNS entry.
Had this same issue, had to map via dns name rather than ip address.
Microsoft claims this is a feature.
@Dashrender because radicalism has been normalized from our political leadership.
Throw out every norm and convention, publicly for rule of law and order, and the masses will follow suit.
