Xen "xl" with Cloudmin 9.0


I read the the news release from http://www.webmin.com/ for Cloudmin 9.0 statin that the "xl" toolstack is now supported.

updates the Xen support to handle the new xl API command

However I cannot get this to work. I keep getting "Could not fetch Xen instances : ERROR: A different toolstack (xl) have been selected!" and similar errors.

How do I activate "xl" support in Cloudmin 9.0 on Ubuntu 16.04?

Thank you,

Does your system have both the xl and xm commands? If so, one work-around is to remove the xm command completely - that way Cloudmin will only use xl

root@vh3:~# dpkg -S /usr/sbin/xm xen-utils-common: /usr/sbin/xm root@vh3:~# dpkg -S /usr/sbin/xl xen-utils-common: /usr/sbin/xl

As you can see xm and xl are both provided by the same package... so I tried this.

root@vh3:~# mv /usr/sbin/xm /usr/sbin/oldxm

Still getting "Could not fetch Xen instances : sh: xm: command not found"

Looks like it worked afterall. Just had to give it some time to pick up on the change. Thanks!

Ok, cool - the next release of Cloudmin will deal with this situation properly, by also checking if the xml command is actually working.
