Re: [Xen-devel] vif naming? also halting a VM

Ok, just checking. I want to try to write a script that brings up aliases and sets up iptables rules for NAT and such, and I wondered what the options for managing vif names were. Your rationale all makes perfect sense, so I won't argue. :)

Second, when I run "halt" in a VM, "xm list" shows the VM still hanging around:
# xm list
0    Domain-0              54    0  r----   2073.2
7    This is VM 1           0    1  ---s-     29.0
"xm shutdown" or "destroy" don't seem to have any effect. Is this normal?

This sort of problem seemed to have been cured a while ago.
What version of the code are you using?

That particular example was from code checked out sunday afternoon.

xend debug output shows "shutdown" and "destroy domain 7" or somesuch messages after the halt, yet "xm list" shows it still in state "s" afterward.
