Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-06-20 01:39:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Using both virt-manager and virsh, shutting down a domain does not result in
anything (tried using QEMU and QEMU-KVM)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.4.2-1.fc9 to 0.4.3-1.fc10

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a virtual machine, say Foo
2. Start Foo
3. virsh shutdown Foo
Actual results:
"Domain Foo is being shutdown" -- but nothing happens if you're watching on the
graphical console. Foo keeps running normally

Expected results:
Foo should receive an ACPI shutdown signal

Additional info:
I tried shutting down the machine (in this case, DragonFly BSD). Even when the
machine is in powered-down state, the Shutdown button does not do anything and I
had to 'destroy' the machine (perhaps that option should be renamed. Force
Comment 1 Daniel Veillard 2008-06-20 04:20:24 EDT
yes confirmed, I have noticed that on F-9/KVM too but didn't chase it yet,

Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2008-08-21 10:22:07 EDT
This is a KVM problem. The KVM 65 in Fedora 9 doesn't send the ACPI power off event correctly. I tested rawhide KVM-70  and it works as required. F9 needs an updated KVM package....
Comment 3 Glauber Costa 2008-08-21 14:17:39 EDT
For the record, virsh will use qemu's system_powerdown monitor command to accomplish that, right ?

I'm trying it in kvm-userspace.git right now, and it does not seem to be working.
(i.e.: machine keeps running). Dan, what are you seeing exactly in rawhide to make you believe it works there? Is the machine properly stopped at there?
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2008-08-21 15:58:16 EDT
Yes,  libvirt will invoke  system_powerdown, which sends an ACPI event.  You need to make sure your VM does *not* pass  -no-acpi to QEMU. Depending on the guest, you may also need   acpi=force on the guest kernel command line. The guest also needs to be runnning acpid daemon.

For the record I used a RHEL-5.2 guest, on i386, and had acpi=force. With kvm-65 shutdown didn't work (no acpi event appeaed in /proc/interrupts). With kvm-70 from rawhide re-built on F9, it correctly shutdown.
Comment 5 Glauber Costa 2008-08-27 16:27:01 EDT
Please check if http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=789251 fixes
this problem.
Comment 6 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-08-27 17:07:31 EDT
I'm currently on Rawhide; the binary RPM does not install, and rebuilding the SRPM fails:


due to Rawhide RPM's stricter constraint on patch fuzziness.
Comment 7 Daniel Berrange 2008-08-28 10:35:58 EDT
Confirmed that kvm-65-8_private_glommer_acpi.fc9.x86_64.rpm fixes the problem - please build for updates
