Re: Xen 4.0.3 on Linux 2.6.32 failed to shutdown gracefully, but reboot instead
[In reply to]
What I tried to do was to power down dom0 gracefully. The server
rebooted instead of powered down and stayed off. When the server booted
to the same kernel without multi-boot, the dom0 could be power down
gracefully either with "shutdown now" or "poweroff" commands.
I used the lastest XenWindowsGplPV drivers 11.0.357 on Windows 2003/2008
x64 and found no problem. The domU(s) responded to "xm shutdown" command
and shutdown gracefully.
