Just to add some other info.
I've tried to use the xend toolstack in the way suggested in the Xen wiki
and in this thread.
1. Disable SELinux (just in case...)
2. Removed libvirt-daemon-driver-libxml package (rpm -e --no-deps ...)
3. Enabled/started xend via systemctl
4. Rebooted the host
After the boot I've done some safety check:
$ systemctl is-enabled xend.service
$ ps -furoot | grep -i xen
root 31 2 0 17:20 ? 00:00:00 [xenwatch]
root 32 2 0 17:20 ? 00:00:00 [xenbus]
root 523 1 0 17:20 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/xenstored
root 592 1 0 17:20 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/xenconsoled
root 705 1 0 17:20 ? 00:00:04 /usr/bin/python -Es
Then I've tried the following command (as root)
$ virt-install -v -c iso/CentOS-6.4-x86_64-minimal.iso --ram 1024 --disk
path=./images/test-c63_64-xen.img,size=10 --name test-c64_64 --graphics vnc
And I got the following error
libvirtError: POST operation failed: xend_post: error from xen daemon:
(xend.err 'Device 768 (vbd) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not
