Description Dave Ludlow 2006-04-08 10:08:26 EDT
Description of problem: The xen-3.0.1-cloexec.patch introduces a regression that breaks the "xm save" command - or more specifically, the xc_save program that it calls. The discussion at the URL listed sums it up. Either the cloexec patch needs to be removed or the close-on-exec flag needs to be cleared in XendCheckpoint.py. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.0.1-4 How reproducible: Every time Steps to Reproduce: 1.Execute "xm save domain filename" on a running domain Actual results: An error is returned and the following goes into xend.log: Unable to get platform info.: 9 at XendCheckpoint:227 Expected results: The domain's state and config should be saved to the file. Additional info: The migrate command is also broken as a dependency. I'm not related to the mailing list thread in the URL, it's something I found while troubleshooting. I have confirmed that applying the attached patch and rebuilding the RPM fixes the bug.

Thanks for the patch. Daniel, want to add this to our RPM?
Comment 3 JM 2006-04-17 09:19:44 EDT
"xm migrate" calls "xm save" and so "xm migrate" fails too.
Comment 4 Daniel Veillard 2006-04-18 13:06:53 EDT
Okay, reproduced and confirmed the fix, I'm pushing xen-3.0.1-5 to rawhide and xen-3.0.1-5.FC5 to FC5 testing later. For migrate it's a different problem ! thanks ! Daniel

xen-3.0.1-5.FC5 has been released for a long time now, fixed there. W.r.t. migration the last time I tried one month ago this worked just fine, with a pre 3.0.3 release. Daniel
