Hi Vincent,

Thanks for letting me know.

Is their any way to override this default behavior?
I have a script in domU, which is supposed to post some info to xenstore after it boots up. Yes, I can manually grant permission after I create a guest domain, but I wish I could automated it.
I don't really know how to do that exactly; you have to look at where the /local/domain/<domid>/ entry get created, and put an explicit setperm there.

However I think changing your script in a domU is the way forward. there are other place in xenstore (have a look at maybe /vm/<uuid>/ and /local/domain/<domid>/*/ ) that are still writable.
