Comment 2 Milan Zazrivec 2012-04-02 05:01:28 EDT
Rebooting KVM guests running on a RHEL-5 KVM host doesn't work in general,
no matter whether you are using RHN Satellite or virsh (it works in general
on a RHEL-6 host though).

If there are any errors propagated from libvirt, in RHN Satellite we
have no other option but to display the error and fail the corresponding
reboot action.

I'm closing this with wontfix, since there's not much we can do about this
in Satellite.
