Virt-manager doesn't show an error message for vfio device failure
Last modified: 2013-11-15 08:34:42 EST
Description of problem:
virt-manager fails to show an error message when a pci device doesn't work and the VM failes to start.
This is the error message generated from the command line.
# virsh start win7pro-cli5
error: Failed to start domain win7pro-cli5
error: internal error: Invalid device 0000:83:00.0 driver file /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:83:00.0/driver is not a symlink
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 19 with the virt-preview repository enabled.
uname: 3.11.4-201.fc19.x86_64 #1 SMP Thu Oct 10 14:11:18 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
virt-manager doesn't print error message.
error message stating that vm failed to start and the output regarding why. A message like this perhaps: error: internal error: Invalid device 0000:83:00.0 driver file /sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:83:00.0/driver is not a symlink
Prior to upgrading to virt-preview I was getting messages about not being able to do a bus reset.
I created a bug report about vfio issues #1020326
Hmm, I can't reproduce here, VM startup errors are reported correctly.
Can you reproduce with virt-manager --debug, and attach all the output here?
I updated this morning and it appears to be working for me as well. I'll close it.
