Allow Auto Start on XenServer 6.x Step 1: Enable the auto power on feature at pool level

Setting the XenServer pool to allow Auto-Start

Gather the UUID’s of the pools you wish to auto-start.
To get the list of the pool’s on your XenServer type:

xe pool-list

Copy the UUID of the pool. If you have just one server, it will still have a pool UUID as seen below:

Then type the following command to set the pool or server to allow auto-start:

xe pool-param-set uuid=UUID other-config:auto_poweron=true

Note: *Replacing UUID with the UUID of the XenServer or pool.*

Important to switch this off if you are going to use HA, DR and Pool upgrade functionality because the auto-start function interfered with High Availability , Disaster Recovery and Pool upgrade.
