You might have to use xm mem-max to set the maximum memory for the guest prior to using xm mem-set.* Also, if you look at the man page for xm, you will see the following for mem-set:
"Because this operation requires cooperation from the domain operating system, there is no guarantee that it will succeed.* This command will definitely not work unless the domain has the required paravirt driver."
So, there is no guarantee that you can increase/decrease the ram of a guest without restarting it.
