Hm. It certainly _used_ to prior to the upgrade ...

It might be caused by the fact that Leap uses SLE12 as a base for
systemd, which forces net.ifnames=0. Try to boot with net.ifnames=1 on
kernel cmdline.

Again, it worked absolutely fine prior to the upgrade; the script executed,
and the knobs' values were verified to be set.

Likely by ifup scripts instead of wicked.

That preceding "(null):" is a problem, but iirc is due to the lack of
properly init'd xenstored

wicked and xenstored are unrelated.

At least xen works on my Leap installation. Not sure why EFI would make
any difference.
Are there stale xen related .service files or sysv
scripts which prevent xenstored.service/xenstored.socked from starting?
Our xencommons.service is supposed to start everything.

I made a little progress.

I read this

exec'd these

systemctl enable xenstored.service
systemctl enable xenconsoled.service
systemctl enable xen-init-dom0.service
systemctl enable xen-qemu-dom0-disk-backend.service
systemctl enable xendomains.service

So now,

systemctl list-unit-files | grep -i xen
proc-xen.mount static
var-lib-xenstored.mount static
xen-dom0-modules.service disabled
xen-init-dom0.service enabled
xen-qemu-dom0-disk-backend.service enabled
xen-watchdog.service disabled
xencommons.service enabled
xenconsoled.service enabled
xendomains.service enabled
xenstored.service enabled
xenstored.socket enabled
xenstored_ro.socket enabled

Which one was missing? xencommons.service is supposed to start them all.

Also found & removed these from the /etc/default/grub

- GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_XEN_REPLACE=" (.*) rdloaddriver=xennet

This is unrelated I think.

Nov 18 19:15:56 xensvr systemd-udevd[812]: Network interface NamePolicy=
disabled on kernel commandline, ignoring.

I've no idea what it's referring to, as

Likely because its forced to be off in the sources.
