Q: I am trying to start the xend service and nothing happens, then when I do a `xm list1 I get the following:
Error: Error connecting to xend: Connection refused. Is xend running?
Alternatively, I run xend start manually and get the following error:
ERROR: Could not obtain handle on privileged command interface (2 = No such file or directory)
Traceback (most recent call last):

A: You have rebooted your host into a kernel that is not a xen-hypervisor kernel. Yes I did this myself in testing
You either need to select the xen-hypervisor kernel at boot time or set the xen-hypervisor kernel as default in your grub.conf file.
