I'm wondering if  BOOT_DIR=/ood/path/boot and EFI_DIR=/odd/path/efi is a must?
I'm using the grub2 to boot the kernel (so that I can remotely control
which grub entry I will get into).

I put the xen image to /boot and the system can boot up. The xl
toolstack seems working well.

However, the dom0's name is null.

When I run /ood/path/etc/init.d/xencommons restart , it reports the
following message:

Stopping xenconsoled
Stopping QEMU
WARNING: Not stopping xenstored, as it cannot be restarted.
Starting xenconsoled...
Starting QEMU as disk backend for dom0

I guess there is something wrong with the xenstored's configuration?
Did you happen to experience this issue before?

Thanks and Best Regards,
