rtmerror

Solution: seems to be realted to a number of JAVA applications, in this instance it was the Cisco Systems Real Time Monitoring toool

Simply change the OSD file to point to console instead of windows

Change:
<VM VALUE=”Win32″>
<SUBSYSTEM VALUE=”windows“/>
</VM>

To:
<VM VALUE=”Win32″>
<SUBSYSTEM VALUE=”console“/>
</VM>

Solution: Download the usbmount.bat from http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX118198

Edit the file with your xenserver details  and your vm and usb uuid’s.

HOW DO I FIND MY XENSERVER VM UUID?

bring up a console session on the XenServer and run

xe vm-list

HOW DO I FIND MY XENSERVER USB UUID?

the citrix provided command for listing Removable storage didn’t return any results in my setup.

xe sr-list name-label=Removable Storage

So under the XenServer Console > Click the Removable storage node in the console > Right click and copy the UUID Displayed
