=== Command Line ===
 
XCP does not come with the 'xm' CLI you may have used for managing traditional Xen. Instead, XCP comes with several CLI management clients built into dom0 (the thin hypervisor host), including:
 
* xe (/usr/bin/xe)
 
* xl (/opt/xensource/bin/xl)
 
* For further documentation, see [[Command Line Interface]] - Running the Xen Cloud Platform Command Line Interface
 
* For installing the 'xe' CLI on another Linux box, see [[XCP Install CLI]]
 
=== GUIs ===
 
[http://community.citrix.com/display/xs/XenCenter Citrix XenCenter] is the most popular choice for managing XCP hosts, however, there are a couple minor compatibility issues that can be worked around to improve usage, as described on the [[XenCenterXCP|XenCenter and XCP compatibility]] page.
