The thing I'm concerned with is the absence of the start command.  With 
Xend and xm you used xm start domainname, with xl, there does not appear 
to be a start command available.  Perhaps what you are saying is the 
same as starting a domain with a specific config, i.e., xl create <path 
to config file> but I guess I want to be sure before I jump.  Currently 
my DomU's are up but I upgraded the kernel to 4.2.0 while they were 
alive and did not reboot the box, so I've got no console at the moment. 
  (i.e., no way to view domain status, stop or start them from within 
the list).

Thanks for the response.
