Has anyone manged to get the Xenserver agents install on 7.1? 


They are listed as 7.x but dated August 2016.   When I try and run the install.sh file, it comes back as FATAL: missing dependency xs:main




Any clues whether they are supposed to be working?

It's probably because 7.1 has a newer kernel than 7.0. I'd bug HP to fix it.

Hello James,


I have just came to the same issue but, it is not kernel related.


Can you try:


mkdir /etc/xensource/installed-repos/xs:main


In there create a file XS-REPOSITORY with the the flowing content:

You can check your build and edit it below if needed.



<repository build="137272c" name="main" originator="xs" product="XenServer" version="7.1.0">

  <description>XenServer Pack</description>




Restart the tool-stack:




Now try to install the SNMP agent:

I had the same problem with my Fujitsu agent as well and what I did was edited the XS-REPOSITORY (I think!) and removed the dependency so the installer would install.
