Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1016445
virt-manager handles serial console incorrecttly
Last modified: 2013-11-10 12:00:26 EST
Description of problem:
Following scenarios does not work
1) When running virt-manager, access to serial console of any guest from console is not possible as virt-manager holds session for the console.
2)If trying to view serial console in virt-manager when console is opened somewhere else, got error message (correct behavior). However, after closing
console session, virt-manager still reports active session.
3) When running virt-manager and access serial console using virsh console --force, virt-manager serial console tab is stuck even after closing another session (not reconnected).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create and run guest with serial console
2. Try to access it from virt-manager or console
virt-manager create serial console session on background on start (guest or virt-manager, whatever happens first) and do not update it.
virt-manager create serial console session on demand, update when serial console
is requested again.
Thanks for the report, upstream is fixed now to disconnect from the text console when the VM window is closed.
Fixed in virt-manager-0.10.0-5.git1ffcc0cc.fc21
