Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1016715
Installation doesn't always shutdown cleanly when installing KVM guest
Last modified: 2013-11-05 19:47:58 EST
Description of problem:
After installing F20 Beta TC2 and going forward to reboot into the newly installed system it doesn't always reboot/shutdown cleanly. Sometimes it appears to have stopped all services in the installer environment but doesn't reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
from time to time
Steps to Reproduce:
0. On the host I have a latest Fedora 20 snapshot with
1. Perform a default install using DVD ISO and the virt-manager wizard
2. After install is complete click the Reboot button inside anaconda
Systems doesn't always reboot.
I also had to uncleanly shutdown guests a few times. My setup was a bit odd though: nested virt with F19(L0) F20(L1) F20(L2). I was informed that F19 kernels with nested virt have issues so that may explain the problems i was having.
I'm experiencing this still with 3.11.4-302 on F20 beta TC4. I don't think this is against anaconda however, but I'm not sure which component. Maybe qemu or libvirt.

Or systemd. Anaconda just calls 'systemctl --no-wall reboot' which should reboot the system.
I was reproducing this at the time this was filed, but seems to work for me now. If anyone can still reproduce, please reopen.
I'm getting soft lockups only in qemu/kvm reboot and poweroff even when forced which doesn't seem like it would be a systemd bug. Filed bug 1026142.
