[Xen-users] Shutting down full virt DomU


I recently moved a Win2k3 server from VMware into Xen. I am a little puzzled over a couple of things and would like confirmation of whether what I am seeing/doing is correct (expected behaviour) or if not what I am doing wrong.

From within the DomU, if I tell windows to shutdown, it does and does in virt-manager as 'shutdown' with no dom id. But it would appear that it is really still there. I can not 'destroy' it as I haven't got an Id anymore and if I try to 'create' it, I get an error saying the name already exists. I did manage to start it again from virt-manager by just using the 'Right-click RUN' command.

When I shutdown linux DomU's (all PV), the DomU disappears completely from the list and I restart with xm create.

Is this expected behavior ? or am I doing something wrong.

What I was trying to do above, was to change the CD device to use a different ISO. I tried xm block-detach but that doesn't seem to work without a --force, and then Windows still thinks the drive exists. The drive went away after the restart, as performed above.

I then used xm block-attach and whilst virt-manager shows the device as I had hoped, Windows doesn't however. I tried getting device manager to rediscover but that didn't work either.

How does one change CDs with a PV ?
