Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH RFC 2/3] systemd: add xen-init-dom0 service


removing the 2 lines in xenstored.service was key to let xen-init-dom0 do the 
right thing.
The JSON file is now created at Xen start (before Xendomains starts).

I tested it by direct edits to systemd service file without a new build.
`xl list -l 0` also gives the expected results.

In logs, its different now (no more `dom0 already setup`)
---------- log ----------

13:41:05 c7dom0 xen-init-dom0: Done setting up  Dom0                            
13:41:05 c7dom0 systemd: Started xen-init-dom0, initialise JSON configuration 
stub for Dom0.                        

---------- snip -------

thanks for getting to the bottom of this,

You can delete that file before rebooting.

But this series alone won't work though. You need to remove two more
lines in xenstored.service.

Delete that file before rebooting. xen-init-dom0 will create one when it
