        If there are PV drivers available for your distro, they might
include something that watch for and respond to the shutdown signal provided
by Xen.  I don't think the shutdown signal is actually dealt with by a
driver per se, though, I just know that a service to provide that
functionality is included in the GPLPV drivers for Windows provided by James
Harper.  If the drivers don't have software for it, you might be able to
find the a software piece separately, or you could try that first.
Regardless, unless someone can point you toward the appropriate app/service,
or you can find or make one on your own, you would have to run the VM as PV
to get your preferred behavior.

Subject: [Xen-users] hvm gracefull power off

Hi all,

I have an Ubuntu 7.x HVM that I would prefer to be shutdown gracefully  
instead of what is going on now which looks to be a sudden kill;

xm shutdown foo

.. pretty much kills it instead of a nice halt -p.

My HVM conf file does say destroy but so do my other paravirt machines  
and they gracefully shutdown.

Any ideas how I can do this?
