Re: [Xen-API] XCP 1.1 and the DVD CPU Usage Bug in XenServer 5.6

That's an excellent suggestion. Thank you. Unfortunately it's not its own service, it's started by /etc/rc.d/init.d/xenservices. I'll just comment it out of that script for now.

But, I'd still like to know if we're running an unpatched driver in XCP 1.1. The fix was released in Oct. of 2010 so I would have thought that it should have made it into XCP 1.1.

A simpler solution might be to disable the cdrommon service ('service cdrommon stop' and then 'chkconfig --del cdrommon' - I'm not totally sure about the command line, it's worth checking the man page)

IIRC cdrommon monitors the states (tray empty, tray full) of the physical CDROM drives of the host, passing through state changes to any interested VMs. If you aren't using physical CDs from guests then it doesn't perform any useful function. If you take a look at the file 'cdrommon.ml' in the github repo, you'll see how simple it is.
