And this is actually what I've done at the end.
It seems there is no alternative solution to this problem.

Thanks I'll do.

I know the create command but xm new is different.
when the old xm toolstack was used, "xm new" was for adding
the domU to the xend manager (so, even if the domUs were not
running, if you execute xm list, you were able to see the domains
anyway) and then you could do "xm start domainname" to start the domU.

In this case, xend is no longer present, so as far as I understand, this
"trick" cannot be done anymore. Am I correct?
Did I explain myself correctly? (maybe I didn't write very well what I mean,
let me know if it is not clear please).

Thanks a lot,
