Description Eric Blake 2014-10-24 20:59:20 UTC
cloning to qemu-kvm; maybe we should improve the crippling code to also nuke block-job-cancel (and maybe block-job-set-speed and query-block-jobs); it
seems weird to see commands related to block jobs if you can't start any.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1140981 +++

Description of problem:

Libvirt should post more accurate error when do blockpull with qemu-kvm

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

libvirt-1.2.8-2.el7.x86_64
qemu-kvm-1.5.3-69.el7.x86_64

How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a backing chains

# qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.img 10G ;qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1 10G -b /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.img -o backing_fmt=qcow2;qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s2 10G -b /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1 -o backing_fmt=qcow2


Formatting '/var/lib/libvirt/images/base.img', fmt=qcow2 size=10737418240 encryption=off cluster_size=65536 lazy_refcounts=off
Formatting '/var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1', fmt=qcow2 size=10737418240 backing_file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/base.img' backing_fmt='qcow2' encryption=off cluster_size=65536 lazy_refcounts=off
Formatting '/var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s2', fmt=qcow2 size=10737418240 backing_file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1' backing_fmt='qcow2' encryption=off cluster_size=65536 lazy_refcounts=off

 2. Install guest with base.s2 as source file

# virsh list && virsh domblklist rhel7
 Id    Name                           State
----------------------------------------------------
 52    rhel7                          running

Target     Source
------------------------------------------------
vda        /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s2

3. Try to do blockpull

# virsh blockpull rhel7 vda --active

error: Requested operation is not valid: Command 'block-stream' is not found

#virsh blockpull rhel7 vda --base /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1

error: Requested operation is not valid: Command 'block-stream' is not found


Actual results:


Expected results:

Since block-stream is not supported on qemu-kvm, so libvirt should post more accurate
error like "error: unsupported configuration: block pull is not supported with this QEMU binary"

Additional info:

#virsh blockcopy rhel6 vda /var/lib/libvirt/images/copy.img --wait
error: unsupported configuration: block copy is not supported with this QEMU binary

#virsh blockcommit rhel6 vda --active
error: unsupported configuration: online commit not supported with this QEMU binary

Uggh.  The problem is because RHEL ships 'block-job-cancel' even though it cripples out 'block-stream', but the libvirt code was assuming that either both commands are present, or neither.  I'm half tempted to reassign this to qemu to have them rework the crippling code to hide 'block-job-cancel', then libvirt will just work.

Comment 4 Miroslav Rezanina 2016-05-16 08:06:08 UTC
Fix included in qemu-kvm-1.5.3-112.el7

Comment 6 Qianqian Zhu 2016-09-12 07:11:08 UTC
Reproduced with:
qemu-kvm-1.5.3-60.el7.x86_64

1. Prepare a backing chains

# qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.img 10G ;qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1 10G -b /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.img -o backing_fmt=qcow2;qemu-img create -f qcow2 /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s2 10G -b /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1 -o backing_fmt=qcow2

 2. Install guest with base.s2 as source file

# virsh list && virsh domblklist rhel7

 Id    Name                           State
----------------------------------------------------
 3     rhel7                          running

Target     Source
------------------------------------------------
hda        /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s2

3. Try to do blockpull

Result:
# virsh blockpull rhel7 hda
error: Requested operation is not valid: Command 'block-stream' is not found

# virsh blockpull rhel7 hda --base /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1
error: Requested operation is not valid: Command 'block-stream' is not found

Verified with:
qemu-kvm-1.5.3-122.el7.x86_64

Steps same as above.

Result:
# virsh blockpull rhel7 hda
error: unsupported configuration: block jobs not supported with this QEMU binary

# virsh blockpull rhel7 hda --base /var/lib/libvirt/images/base.s1
error: unsupported configuration: block jobs not supported with this QEMU binary

Moving to Verified.
