    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Done (View Workflow)
    • Priority: Minor
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: 7.2
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: XenCenter

    • Environment:

      XenServer 7.1 and presumably all versions of 7.X, matching or newer version of XenCenter.

      Description

      With the XenCenter update installation tool, it is no longer possible to choose individual hosts within a pool to apply the hotfix(es) to. This, while designed to be helpful, is actually a hindrance in some cases where you want to deliberately apply the hotfix to a selected host or subset of hosts.  Now, it appears one has to resort to the CLI to accomplish this:
      xe upload-apply host-uuid=<UUID_of_host> uuid=<UUID_of_file>

      There are times it would be much more convenient to apply all updates and choose to manually do a reboot or toolstack restart at a later time.
