Thread-topic: run a script before creating domain
I seem to be living in constant fear of starting the same domain on more
than one machine at once. As a way of preventing this, I'd like to be
able to have a script execute as part of an 'xm create' that runs before
doing any of the actual domain creation.

At the moment, all I'd do is do a 'ping' to see if the domain is up and
running. Not foolproof but would save me >99% of the time. In a cluster
environment there should be a way to determine remotely if a domain is

Ideally, there would be a 'dom_check_exists' script automatically run
(if it exists) which could be implemented in a cluster environment, but
for now, where is a good place to hook into this?
