We currently have a fact in ruby facter that reports a list of xen domains if that is the virtual provider. We have yet to port this fact to native facter. That should happen.

The original xendomains fact returned a comma delimited string, such as "web01,mailserver". Should we take this opportunity to upgrade this to an array-based structured fact? xendomains => ["web01", "mailserver"]

Also, as per Melissa Stone, we have a community member that may be interested in implementing this fact. He has experience with Xen, which is helpful since we don't really have a great way to do any testing ourselves.

I lean towards creating the xendomains fact as a legacy comma-delimited fact, and creating a new structured fact with array elements (xen.domains).

A nightly build should be available tomorrow. It would be helpful to find a community member who can verify this fact.

Comment by Sean Griffin [ 2015/07/09 ]

This is difficult to verify because it requires running Xen hypervisor on real hardware rather than on a VM from the pooler.
