Thanks for the reply Stephan,

Not sure the timers in /etc/default/xendomains will be much of help.
Couldn't find any default timer that would make any sense in this

I did some further tests and put the sleep command in the hearbeat
resource script instead of in the init.d script. Putting it there had
no effect at all. So it means that when the heartbeat resource script
is executed during reboot it will not wait for it to complete before
moving along with the shutdown of the system, causing xend to shutdown
before domains are migrated.

Didn't have this problem in Debian, so it could be a combination of
the heartbeat script and Ubuntu's reboot mechanism. But I believed
Ubuntu and Debian would be similar in this aspect?

Regards, Daniel
