xl complains that xend is running if xend is running. /etc/init.d/xend
can exist but not be run at startup. What xl actually checks for is some
lockfiles created by xend at start of day.

Pretty sure xend was not running. 
I removed the startup links via update-rc.d and it required a reboot to stop complaining.
Perhaps xend did start and was shutdown, hence the lockfiles (I did not see them, rebooted the system since).

You can confirm with "ps aux" whether xend is running, if it is not then
there is a false positive in libxl's check (and I'll ask for some other
info if that is the case).

I did upgrade from Xen 4.1.2 to 4.3.0. I also purged the existing xen installation before the upgrade so it should not matter.


If xend is running then you really should arrange for it not to be (e.g.
"update-rc.d xend disable" I think).

xend and xl do not collaborate very well together, xend really needs to
not be running.
