Connect to the XenServer console of an SDX Appliance to administer a VPX instance

Situation: We restored a ns.conf file to a Citrix Netscaler VPX running on an Netscaler SDX platform, however the device didnt come back online and the instance remained RED on the SDX interface.

Typically the ipaddress of the SDX XenServer is 1 greater than the host
By default the SDX SVM (Management Service) will be 192.168.100.1, then Xenserver hypervisor will be 192.168.100.2

Solution:
Putty to the IP address of the SDX XenServer Instance

Default
login: root
pass: nsroot

List all sessions running under xen server
xl list

Find the corresponding ID number of the VM in the display and then

xl session xx

xenserver_xllist

This will start an ssh session to the virtual device in question. Press up or enter key to begin working in the virtual console.

CTRL + ] will quit
