FYI this forum is for the "plain" open-source XenProject.  Your
question is about XenServer, which is a separate product.  (It
contains the same hypervisor underneath, but has  a significantly
different contol plane.)  If you're a customer, then using the
customer support channels will get you a better answer; if you're
using openxenserver, then you can find the mailing lists and forums
for support on the OpenXenServer website:
