How to kill a hung VM on XenServer

Sometimes you run into a hung VM on XenServer. This is how to kill the VM running on XenServer :

Kill01

First look up the UUID (in my case 50fa073a- etc)

Kill02

Using the command list_domains you can find the id’s (0, 6, 7, 9 etc)

Kill03

Now use the grep command to find the domain ID you need and use the following command to kill the VM : /opt/xensource/debug/xenops destroy_domain –domid <domainid>

Kill04
