Citrix NetScaler VPX on VS3

Post by geekydrewbie » Fri Jun 21, 2019 7:16 am

I was wondering if anyone has got this working? I have managed to copy over the KVM download to VS and renamed the file .img. When the VM boots it just hangs at "Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf". I know its not officially supported by Citrix/QNAP, but as VS is KVM i thought this would work with minimal fuss :).

Incase this is useful for anyone else. I got it working by doing the following:-
- install VMWare Workstation (Trial is fine) on a PC
- import the VMware Citrix OVF to VMWare Workstation
- export the VM from VMWare Workstation
- import the exported VM to the QNAP
- modify the network card to be VIRTIO (if you don't do this the booting will fail due to no network card)
