As a suggestion, don’t move the file
but rather link it (# ln –s /etc/xen/fc6guest /etc/xen/auto/fc6guest )
IIRC, the default path for xm to be
looking for the config file of a guest is in /etc/xen and by moving the file to
./auto you’ll have to specify the path whenever manually starting the
domU (i.e. # xm create /etc/xen/auto/fc6guest in stead of # xm create fc6guest).
Naturally, the problem w/having two copies of the file speaks for itself…

xm list shows now only domain 0.
How can I now restart that guest domain ?
Resatring the virt-manager does not restart it , as xm list shows.
(let's assume that the file where the guest
domain was created is /home/ian/xenGuest)
2) Regarding Ian Patton remark - I meant para virtualized and not
fully virtualized guest; it was a miskate from me to talk about fully
