Description David Kovalsky 2010-05-17 12:57:26 UTC
I've noticed that in 5.5 `service xendomains status' doesn't work. Returns 1.

# service xendomains status
Checking for xendomains:Error: Unable to open config file: /etc/xen/auto/private.xen
 MISS AUTO:       [dead]                                   [FAILED]

# echo $?

/var/log/audit/audit.log contains these entries.
