Got a Xenserver guest that wont shutdown? give this ago

1 – “xe vm-list” to get the uuid of the VM that is hung

2 – “list_domains” to list the domain uuid’s so you can determine
the domain # of the VM above by matching the uuids from this output with
the uuid for your VM from the previous command.

3 – “/opt/xensource/debug/destroy_domain -domid XX” where XX is the domain number from the previous command

4 – “xe vm-reboot uuid=XXXX –force” where XXXX is the uuid from the first vm-list command for your VM. (name-label may work but didn’t work this time for me so I used the uuid)

5 – (optional) If its still stuck try “xe-toolstack-restart”

Your VM will be back up running now in most cases. (I use this for my HVMs that hang so I don’t have to reboot the host server)
