Description Henrik Nordström 2009-11-12 19:49:55 EST
Description of problem:

Currently libvirt only autostarts guests, it does not autostop guests on shutdown, causing guest corruption on host reboots.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start a guest
2. Reboot the host
3. Start the guest again
Actual results:

Guest complains about unclean shutdown, checks filessytems etc. In worst case guest may even be corrupted.

Expected results:

Cleanly shut down guests before host is shutdown / rebooted.

Additional info:

A suggested init script doing this was posted on the list in July


the script works for me with just a minor patch

export LC_ALL=C
instead of

Additionally providing the option of saving & restoring the vm state instead of shutting down would be very nice, but making sure running guests are shut down is a good start.
