Great matrix but I'm not sure I follow your logic since XenCenter 6 can
manage any version of XenServer, at least it appears to work fine for any
version from 4.1 through 6.0 as well as XCP 1.1, as long as you have
the xpi version override hack installed and have rebooted the toolstack on
your compute nodes. I use XenServer 6 to manage both XenServer 5.5 and
XCP 1.1 pools with no problems.
Here are a couple of references (I couldn't find anything on the Citrix
site, although I know I've seen it): http://en.community.dell.com/techcenter/virtualization/w/wiki/3071.aspx
Download XenCenter 5.6 and install it onto a suitable client machine. The
new version of XenCenter is suitable for managing older versions of
XenServer, and hence no functionality will be lost. http://searchsystemschannel.techtarget.com/tip/Installing-Citrix-XenServer-55-and-XenCenter
customer's XenCenter should support. By default, that will be XenCenter
5.5 only, which is compatible with all versions of XenServer from 4.1 on.
In case you want to manage older versions of XenServer as well, make sure
to also select XenServer 4.0.
