We haven't had issues on xen 4.6. We don't use libvirt.

Are you sure xendomains is enabled? Maybe in the past it was enabled by default but isn't now.

If it is enabled, have you tried running the xendomains init script manually with bash -x to see where it's going wrong? You need to add 'set -x' to
/usr/lib64/xen/bin/xendomains as well for full output.
