 Now I am tring to do some works about Xen management with Xen API. My Xen 
version is v3.1.0.
follows is part of my /etc/xen/xen-config.sxp about xmlrpcserver
(xend-tcp-xmlrpc-server yes)
(xend-unix-xmlrpc-server no)
(xend-tcp-xmlrpc-server-address '')
(xend-tcp-xmlrpc-server-port 8006)
I can connect my xen xmlrpcserver with 8006 port with Python code as follows:
from xen.util.xmlrpcclient import ServerProxy
mySP = ServerProxy("http://localhost:8006";)
print mySP.system.listMethods()
It gives me a api list as "xend.domain.*" , "xend.node.*" and others. Yes, it 
is OK.
But where is the other APIs as "VM.get_platform" and so on?
I insert a log.info into XMLRPCServer class's run function of 
/usr/lib/python/xen/xend/server/XMLRPCServer.py as follows:
# Register Xen API Function
for meth_name in dir(self.xenapi):
if callable(meth) and hasattr(meth, 'api'):
log.info("xmlrpc try to reg. %s as %s",(meth_name, getattr(meth,'api')))
self.server.register_function(meth, getattr(meth,'api'))
After I restart xend using "service xend restart", I can find some api such as 
"VM.get_platform" in /var/log/xen/xend.log file.
Then what is the matter? Why my server does no has those APIs?

Another question, how can I config username/passwd for xmlrpc server? 

Thanks a lot!
