My config for this domain is here:
kernel = "/usr/lib/xen-4.0/boot/hvmloader"
builder = "hvm"
name = 'db.real-charts.com'
memory = 512
vcpus = 1
cpus = '1-3'
disk = [
vif = [ 'mac=00:16:3e:00:04:01,bridge=eth0' ]
vnc = 1
boot = "c"
stdvga = 1
localtime = 0
hpet = 1
acpi = 1
apic = 1
pae = 1
usb = 0
on_poweroff = "destroy"
on_reboot = "restart"
on_crash = "restart"
But as I read the documentation, on_poweroff means what to do when the
domain powers itself off. But for me it seems, that xen sends a halt to
the freebsd domain, exactly as if I issue a
In that case, the domain does halt, and shows that the system is halted,
and press any key to reboot. Unfortunately I dont have a freebsd on real
hardware, so I dont know if issue a halt on that does it powers itself
But when inside the domain, and I issue poweroff, it works as expected, I
guess it sends an acpi poweroff to xen, and then tha virtual machine gets
