3.3 Starting / Stopping Domains Automatically

It is possible to have certain domains start automatically at boot time and to have dom0 wait for all running domains to shutdown before it shuts down the system.

To specify a domain is to start at boot-time, place its configuration file (or a link to it) under /etc/xen/auto/.

A Sys-V style init script for Red Hat and LSB-compliant systems is provided and will be automatically copied to /etc/init.d/ during install. You can then enable it in the appropriate way for your distribution.

For instance, on Red Hat:

# chkconfig --add xendomains

By default, this will start the boot-time domains in runlevels 3, 4 and 5.

You can also use the service command to run this script manually, e.g:

# service xendomains start

Starts all the domains with config files under /etc/xen/auto/.

# service xendomains stop

Shuts down all running Xen domains.
