ls -laZ /etc/xen/auto

drwxr-xr-x  root root system_u:object_r:virt_etc_rw_t  .
drwx------  root root system_u:object_r:virt_etc_t     ..
lrwxrwxrwx  root root user_u:object_r:etc_t            files -> ../files
lrwxrwxrwx  root root root:object_r:virt_etc_rw_t      ha -> ../ha

'xendomains start' fires up 'files' but cannot open the config file for 'ha'.
'xm create ha' works fine.

'service xendomains status' prints:
Checking for xendomains: filesError: Unable to open config file: /etc/xen/auto/ha
 mailgw MISS AUTO: [dead]                                  [FAILED]
