Restart Xen XAPI

Restarts the XAPI service on the host, mostly used by Xen Center. It does not affect any running VMs, just the Xen client tools that may be connected. On my list as XAPI frustratingly keeps running out of memory and getting killed off.
Sample Output
[root]# xe-toolstack-restart
Stopping xapi: Error: Connection refused (calling connect )
