Re: Xen Clustering and Live Migration with NetBSD Dom0

I tried a -current domU with XenServer and in conjunction with a

for it to accept NetBSD as a supported guest (thus enabling migrate,
suspend, memory ballooning, etc.). When I tried to migrate, it sent
through a sleep button press on xenbus which I guess would need to be
caught by powerd to action a suspend within the domU. Is there
something within the NetBSD domU to do this?

Yes; I made a modification to -current where powerd(8) is "enabled" by default when you are in the following situation:
- running under Xen
- i386 or amd64 host


However, this is only the case with an up-to-datish userland; so unless you have updated it recently, you have to turn on powerd in rc.conf(5) explicitly.
