Another SELinux error from this attempt at VM creation
Comment 3 Adam Huffman 2007-01-11 15:34:38 EST
The error reported by the application was:

Error: Device 768 (vbd) could not be connected. Hotplug scripts not working
Comment 4 Stephen Tweedie 2007-01-11 18:32:14 EST
Could you post your guest config file please?  
Comment 5 Adam Huffman 2007-01-12 13:02:51 EST
I couldn't find any config files as I'd deleted the last two attempts.  Just now
I've tried again and it's worked, for the first time.

I'll try again and if that works too, I'll close the bug.  

Perhaps a different update has cured the problem?
Comment 6 Adam Huffman 2007-01-12 13:08:56 EST
Actually, the new virtual machine crashed during installation, but at least the
Xen errors didn't recur.
Comment 7 Adam Huffman 2007-01-12 13:15:57 EST
Trying again now, and there are SElinux denials, but against net-tools.

More SELinux errors

Net-related error triggered during virtual machine creation - should this be
filed separately, against net-tools?
Comment 10 Daniel Berrange 2007-01-12 13:25:13 EST
Nope, the SELinux report here is misleading - this definitely looks like a bug
in XenD / Xen networking scripts, rather than net-tools. I suspect its failing
to close a filehandle before running the net scripts.

What version of the SELinux policy have you got installed ?
Comment 11 Adam Huffman 2007-01-12 13:38:44 EST
Comment 12 Stephen Tweedie 2007-01-12 16:00:44 EST
OK, can you please post /var/log/xen/xend.log output from the failed attempt to
launch the guest?

Comment 14 Trolle Selander 2007-01-15 08:22:22 EST
I've encountered this issue too. It may be a dupe of bug #214700 - check if your
xen bridge is named xenbr1 instead of xenbr0.
Comment 15 Daniel Berrange 2007-01-15 08:32:36 EST
WRT to comment #14 - we no longer hardcode xenbr0 - provided you have
python-virtinst >= 0.97 installed, virt-manager will automatically pick the
correct bridge device based on info from the host routing tables.
Comment 16 Stephen Tweedie 2007-01-15 10:55:26 EST
re comment #9, "Net-related error triggered during virtual machine creation -
should this be filed separately, against net-tools?":

Yes thanks, separate bugs need separate bugzillas, it's not possible to track
what's going on otherwise.
Comment 17 Adam Huffman 2007-01-16 14:06:54 EST
The xen bridge is xenbr0 and I do meet those python-virtinst version requirements.

I have filed a separate bug against net-tools.
Comment 18 Daniel Berrange 2007-03-27 11:24:32 EDT
There was a recent update to the Xen RPM in FC6 which fixed a bug where QEMU
would leak file handles to the networking script, which in turn caused SELinux

* Tue Mar  6 2007 Daniel P. Berrange <berrange@redhat.com> - 3.0.3-7.fc6
- Ensure PVFB daemon terminates if domain doesn't startup (bz 230634)
- Fix ia64 shadow page table mode
- Close QEMU file handles when running network script

Please update to at least  3.0.3-7.fc6,  restart XenD and then try & reproduce
the problem again.
Comment 19 Adam Huffman 2007-04-02 12:31:22 EDT
Yes, that seems to have fixed the problem.
