Description Alan Jenkins 2013-01-30 10:46:00 EST
Description of problem: libvirt-guests fails to restart guests at boot time. The journal shows it failing to connect to libvirtd. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): libvirt-0.10.2.2-3.fc18.x86_64 (installed from testing, fixes libvirt crash on system shutdown a.k.a. bug 903184) How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. systemctl enable libvirt-guests 2. start a guest system 3. reboot Actual results: After the reboot, the guest system is shown as "saved" in virt-manager. Expected results: After the reboot, the guest system should be running. Additional info: - On a running system, you can stop, and then start libvirt-guests, and it has the expected result. I.e. the guest is saved, and then resumed. - Log messages: libvirt-guests.service - Suspend Active Libvirt Guests Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/libvirt-guests.service; enabled) Active: active (exited) since Wed 2013-01-30 15:17:11 GMT; 18min ago Process: 1279 ExecStart=/etc/init.d/libvirt-guests start (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Jan 30 15:17:11 fossil.scree.dyndns.org systemd: Starting Suspend Active Libvirt Guests... Jan 30 15:17:11 fossil.scree.dyndns.org libvirt-guests: Can't connect to default. Skipping. Jan 30 15:17:11 fossil.scree.dyndns.org systemd: Started Suspend Active Libvirt Guests.
Comment 1 Alan Jenkins 2013-01-30 11:40:44 EST
I noticed guests didn't start at boot-time on F17 either. I didn't look for the error message at the time, but I can reproduce the exact same error message in an F17 VM. (It looks like you can't nest KVM, so the inner VM was run under QEMU).
Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2013-04-01 14:01:44 EDT
I rebooted a few times and managed to reproduce this once. Might be a race with libvirtd starting up, if libvirt-guests tries to connect to early, the check fails and no guests are started.
Comment 3 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2013-11-18 09:47:15 EST
It seems that libvirt-guests.service has no dependency on libvirtd.service. It should probably have After=libvirtd.service.
Comment 5 Cole Robinson 2013-11-19 15:23:18 EST
I've sent a patch upstream with the suggestion in Comment #3
