Hmm.. so ocaml xenstored is able to run on a stubdom today?
How about xen tools in dom0.. are they able to deal with that?

Well, we tried this a *long* time ago and it worked then - so no guarantees that it still works!

However, my understanding is that with the patch queue to xen-ocaml-tools.hg applied, and also the small kernel patch queue applied, it should still work. Note the kernel patch queue is required to support either the OCAML or C version of xenstored in a stubdom.



PS If you are going to use the ocaml xenstored in a stubdom then it might be sensible to apply the patch in
