This one might be on old or Debian-specific bug. I've tested "xm
shutdown" with Xen 4.0.1 on RHEL5, with RHEL and Ubuntu PV domU, and
both shutdown just fine. It also works for Windows 2008r2 domU with

Is your domU Debian? If yes, I suggest you try using RHEL/Centos and
Ubuntu as PV domU, at least to make sure whether the bug is on Xen
side or domU side.

As a temporary workaround, you should be able to run "xm destroy"
instead of "xm shutdown".

Yeah, I've been using xm destroy which is fine unless I'm shutting down the whole system.  I've got Debian squeeze for dom0 and Ubuntu Maverick for domU.  I'll ping the debian folks to see if this is a known bug.

You can try searching the archive (IIRC 1024x768 is possible), but the
general answer is don't bother. Don't use domU GUI for anything other
than admin purposes. Use some kind of remote acess (NX/VNC/X
forwarding/rdesktop) setup on domU, and accessed by client (which
could be dom0 or other machines on the network) to get the resolution
you need.

I've been trying to connect using xm vncviewer.  Are you suggesting I run a separate vncserver on the domU and connect to it separately, outside of Xen?
