I would like to show how you to install Zabbix agent on your XEN server 7.2 for monitoring XEN Server. So follow this step by step my instruction for setup Zabbix agent.

Now I would like to show how to install Zabbix agent on your XEN Server 7.0.2
Step #01: At first download rpm package from Zabbix official page.
[[email protected] ~]# rpm -Uvh http://repo.zabbix.com/zabbix/3.0/rhel/7/x86_64/zabbix-release-3.0-1.el7.noarch.rpm
Install Zabbix agent via command below.
[[email protected] ~]# yum install zabbix-agent -y
Step #02: Configure iptables for allow Zabbix port. Open iptables file.
[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables
Then insert below line into iptables file.
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp –dport 10050 -j ACCEPT
Now restart your iptable service via systemctl.
[[email protected] ~]# systemctl restart iptables
Step #03: Now configure Zabbix agent. So at first enable Zabbix agent.
[[email protected] ~]# systemctl enable zabbix-agent
Then start Zabbix service via command.
[[email protected] ~]# systemctl start zabbix-agent
Step #04: Edit Zabbix agent file for monitor XEN Server. Open zabbix_agentd.conf file and insert Zabbix Server IP and your XEN Server host name.
[[email protected] ~]# vi /etc/zabbix/zabbix_agentd.conf
Insert all below lines into zabbix_agentd.conf file.
Server=126.96.36.199 ServerActive=188.8.131.52 Hostname=XEN-SERVER
Server=Your Zabbix Server IP address
ServerActive=Your Zabbix Server IP address

Now goto your Zabbix Server fronted then add your XEN Server host.
Now enjoy your virtual environment.
Troubleshooting : when you add new rule and can’t start iptables service
Job for iptables.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See “systemctl status iptables.service” and “journalctl –xe” for details.
when you add new rule and can’t start iptables service
Solution : First save iptables new rule
[[email protected]~]# /sbin/service iptables save
Second : iptable service start
[[email protected]~]# service iptables start
3rd : iptable service status
[[email protected]~]# service iptables status
Remember it! When you add new rule then first save and then start iptables service. But many people without save and restart iptables service.
