Re: [Xen-users] Zombie domU

Hash: SHA1

I'm pretty sure that the domU in question is using no RAM, as its not
running.  I think that the domain has simply been defined with something
like virsh, virt-manager or virt-install.  In my experience, these
domains remain listed here after being shutdown (as their config is
stored in xenstored not in files), where as ones created with config
files through xm don't.  If it continues to bother you, you could try
'virsh undefine' on it, which should get rid of it (though you may want
to dumpxml on it first if you want to retain the config).

Of course, all this assumes that your using these tools.  If not, what
Xen version and distro are you running?
