Having a hard time here setting up VMs to auto-poweron on Debain 7/XAPI. I've done the following:

xe pool-set-param uuid=<pool uuid> other-config=auto_poweron:true


xe vm-set-param uuid=<vm uuid> other-config=auto_poweron:true

but on reboot it isn't spinning the VM up automatically.

Any other suggestions? I googled for a goo 30 mins on it today and couldn't find any alternative suggestions :\

I am using a vApp. Found it on

Hi Albert I have version 6.0.2 and machines are starting automatically without any problems.

You can also try to start your vms using vApp:
1. Create vApp.
2. Choose vms to vApp.
3. Choose boot order and delays between starts.
4. Use xe appliance-list name-label="name-vapp" to get uuid of vApp.
5. Use vi /etc/rc.local to open rc.local file.
6. At the end of the file past:
sleep 40
xe appliance-start uuid=uuid-vapp
7. Save file, reboot XenServer.

Now your vApp will start with XenServer and will start vms inside in chosen order.
