Recover XEN Guest Root Password

Have you come across a situation when you need to reset the root password of a XEN virtual box.

Logon Host machine run following command to boot guest OS in single usermode and simply recover root user password as normally we do.

#xm create -c /etc/xen/guest_vm_name extra=1

Cheers!
