Description Xuesong Zhang 2013-09-25 06:06:38 EDT
This bug is occurred in latest rhel6.5, so clone it to rhel6.5.

But the error message is a little difference, here is the error message in rhel6.5:
# virsh snapshot-create-as a sp1
Domain snapshot sp1 created
# virsh snapshot-revert a sp1
error: revert requires force: Target controller type ide does not match source usb


+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1006886 +++

Description of problem:
The internal snapshot cannot be reverted. It requires a force parameter but it should work without this parameter.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
upstream, libvirt-1.1.1-4.el7.x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. virsh snapshot-create domain
2. virsh snapshot-revert domain snapshot-id

Actual results:
error: revert requires force: Target device address type none does not match source pci

Expected results:
The snapshot should be reverted successfully without an error message.
