XCP Documentation

Per the explanation on, the best documentation for XCP is the official Citrix XenServer docs for 5.6, available here:

XCP 1.0 is derived from XenServer 5.6 with a number of differences, such as additions and omissions.

This documentation is best combined with knowledge of the feature differences between XCP and XenServer, as explained on the XCP/XenServer Feature Matrix comparison page.

For now, we are listing differences in these wiki pages to aid the creation of independent future XCP documentation. If you identify any further differences, please feel free to add changes yourselves or to ask an appropriate question on xen-api. This is a community effort: having come across an issue and tracking it here, will help others.
