Hello all,

I post again a question I asked few weeks ago : when you change the /boot/grub/grub.conf of a domU, the modification is not taken into account by pygrub, until you reboot the dom0. Restarting xend has no effect, nor deleting the temporary kernel and ramdisk located in /var/lib/xen.

This morning I had to reinstall one of my old domUs, the grub.conf changed and the domU did not boot. I solved the situation by booting the domU on another dom0, then migrating it back to the previous dom0. No cool.

So if somebody knows what to do for the grub.conf change to be seen by pygrub, it will be very usefull for me. I am surprised that nobody is bothered by this.
