Description Bryan D. Payne 2006-07-19 09:53:35 EDT
Description of problem:
When running as root, with UNIX sockets disabled, calls to virDomainLookupByID
succeed the first time and fail the second time.  Turning on UNIX sockets in the
xend-config.sxp file removes this error condition.  However, a complete solution
 should include the following:
* failure condition should be reported more descriptively
* if it is a failure of communications, that should be detected and reported
* two successive calls should not behave differently
* maybe XML dump should be added too when using the proxy

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Failure occurs with version 0.1.3, not with version 0.1.1.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run xend with config found at URL below.
2. Run test code found at URL below.
Actual results:
First call to virDomainLookupByID succeeds, second call fails.
[root@guinness examples]# ./test
(0) (null)
ERROR: Failed to find Domain 1
Failed on second try
[root@guinness examples]#

Expected results:
Both calls succeed.

Additional info:
Xen on my test machine was compiled from stable source version 3.0.2-2.  See
output from 'xm info' below for details.

Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2006-11-06 11:53:00 EST
Hum, the test code is not available anymore. I have tried here with libvirt
CVS, I stopped xend reconfigured it with just http access (no unix socket) and
restarted it. See,s that consecutive calls to the list function is working
when asking virsh to list twice:

[root@paphio src]# ./virsh 
Welcome to virsh, the virtualization interactive terminal.

Type:  'help' for help with commands
       'quit' to quit

virsh # list
 Id Name                 State
  0 Domain-0             running

virsh # list
 Id Name                 State
  0 Domain-0             running

virsh # 

  as root libvirt will first give the list of ID via an hypercall
and then virDomainLookupByID will be called to do the id to name mapping,
and it will get this only from the HTTP access to Xend. So this seems
to work for me with the current version.
  If you still experience the problem, could you make the code example
available again (or show how to get this with virsh) ?
