Comment 1 Bill Sanford 2013-10-08 13:44:00 EDT
The guests were WinXP and Win7
Comment 2 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-10-08 13:46:27 EDT
Please help localize the issue.

Does it work downgrading qxl driver?

Is it only windows->windows?

Have you tried with a RHEL6 client?
Comment 3 Bill Sanford 2013-10-08 13:48:58 EDT
Vimal saw this with a Fedora17 client.
Comment 4 Bill Sanford 2013-10-08 13:52:52 EDT
I just used a Fedora 19 client and see the same.

virt-viewer-0.5.6-1.fc19.x86_64
Comment 5 Christophe Fergeau 2013-10-08 14:19:22 EDT
resizing in win7 + spice-server-0.12.4-3.el6.x86_6 + qemu-kvm-rhev-0.12.1.2-2.406.el6.x86_64 + qxl 0.1-18/0.1.19 (same driver except for the whql sig) is working here with a f19 client.
Comment 6 Bill Sanford 2013-10-08 15:49:57 EDT
The RHEV SPICE agent is set to automatic start in the guest, but yet the service is NOT started after the tools-ISO is installed and reboots the VM.

any chance you could grab the vdagent log? thanks
Comment 8 Bill Sanford 2013-10-08 16:32:56 EDT
Marc-Andre, 

I wrote another bug explaining that the RHEV Spice Agent is not started in the guest even after the reboot of the VM after the tools-ISO install.

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1016861

Once this is restarted, it seems like everything is happy.
Comment 9 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-10-08 16:48:04 EDT
so this bug should be closed.
