I tried to use the same approach at first, but had to roll back to XenCenter. So far, every operation i had to perform in XenCenter seems to have it's equivalence via command line.

Right now I'm trying to create my own reference in form of a catalog of the common basic operations, and how to perform them from a console. If I can make a good cheatsheet form it, I'll try to publish it on xen's wiki.

Around a year ago I've tried some "cloud orchestration" systems, CloudStack between others. Unsuccessful then. (BTW, my cluster ended up running Proxmox. Great stuff, but OpenVZ does not plays nice with Java. I miss Xen, looking forward to move back).

Check http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XCP_Management_Tools and http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/XCP_Projects , try things. Even if the don't work, the developers need our feedback.

I would definitely agree with Todd, XenCenter seems to be a very good start, at least to see what XCP can do and what it can't. After a while, you will have a good notion of what to ask from a "bigger" management system.
