Citrix Hypervisor (Formerly called XenServer)
My question is about Citrix Hypervisor (not Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop), as I have a customer that is trying to get VM guest to Citrix host mapping information into FNMS. Is there a automated way to do this other than doing it through a spreadsheet upload?
Is there a similar scan we can do on a Citrix VM host (through FNMS discovery & inventory rules) like we do for vCenters or standalone ESXi hosts?

Today, FlexNet Manager does not have any productized method/support to capture Citrix Hypervisor/XenServer Host-2-VM mapping.
As you have indicated, the best way to accomplish this today is with a spreadsheet upload.
I tested this a while ago (years), unfortunately without success. There is an API the XenCenter uses to manage XenServers. I was hoping to get host details and Host-VM-relationship data from the API. Back then I found the API to focus on creating VMs, starting, stopping, etc., but no Host details.
There are some promising things now:
- CLI: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-hypervisor/command-line-interface.html
- API: https://developer-docs.citrix.com/projects/citrix-hypervisor-management-api/en/latest/api-ref-autogen/
Maybe it's worth starting a new try.
