Re: [opensuse-virtual] "EVTCHNOP failure" @ OS 12.3 + Xen 4.3 boot for some Guests; launch manually OK
i'm staring at

if ! `${BINDIR}/xenstore-read -s / >/dev/null 2>&1`

what exactly is the intent here?

It checks the status of xenstore to see if it is running by reading from
the socket (-s). On failure, it executes the code to start xenstored.
After loading xenstored it then hits a while loop checking for up to 30
seconds to see if things were properly setup.
The only failure points are if xenstored is already running, xenstored
could not be found, or it times out.

Is there any reason, then, NOT to simply move

edit /etc/init.d/xenstored


echo Setting domain 0 name...
- ${BINDIR}/xenstore-write "/local/domain/0/name"
+ # ${BINDIR}/xenstore-write "/local/domain/0/name"
+ ${BINDIR}/xenstore-write "/local/domain/0/name"

echo Starting xenconsoled...

which appears to 'cure' the "(null)" name issue.
