Give Opinion to safely full/hard/extrem-reset a vm in case of trouble
If a VM is completely locked, ich have to reset it like http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX131421
a Button to do such things would be nice :-)
Hard shutdown should do the trick, more isn’t possible inside XAPI, so nothing we can’t do.

We have that scripted because we use it often. It can be partially avoided by NEVER using "shutdown" on an unresponsive or "troublesome" Windows VM - Xen just waits for ever for the tools to do their work which they never do. If a windows box is sickly, use Force Shutdown first, you'll have less need to destroy the domain.

So a destroy button, I think it's possible with calling "hard_shutdown" in XAPI (Citrix documentation describe it as "Stop executing the specified VM without attempting a clean shutdown.")
Your request is noted :)
"ich" means "i" ....
