  There’s a new WMI api for accessing xenstore. Look and the CitrixXenStoreBase and CitrixXenStoreSession objects. Use the AddSession method of the base object to get a session object.

  There will be a Citrix Knowledgebase article about this in the very near future.

Subject: [Xen-API] [XCP1.6] How can I read/write to xenstore in Windows OS


Hello list,


I have installed XCP1.1 for monthes. By using xenstore_client.exe in xstools1.1, we can write/read message to/from xenstore easily. 

This is useful when we have some specific message to pass between host and guest OS.


For example: 


<XENTOOL_PATH>\xenstore_client.exe write /local/domain/<domainId>/test "message"



<XENTOOL_PATH>\xenstore_client.exe read /local/domain/<domainId>/test (and get the output "message")


Recently after I upgrade the host to XCP1.6 and try to install the newest version of xstool, I found that xenstore_client.exe was removed from xstool6.1. 

Since I really need it to complete my function. So I come here for help. 

Are there any alternatives we can communicate with xenstore in Windows as usual in XCP1.1? 

(CentOS works fine after upgrade.)


Thanks in advance.
