Description Hao Liu 2013-10-29 04:25:00 EDT
Description of problem:
vcpucount don't check exclusive options.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.0 Beta

How reproducible:

# virsh vcpucount <vm-name> --config --live --current


Expected result:
error: --config, --live, and --current are mutually exclusive.
Comment 2 Peter Krempa 2013-10-30 09:16:28 EDT
The --live and --config flags should be considered mutually exclusive for this virsh command. However the combination of --current with those flags is legal as --current was used in a different meaning before the introduction of the modern meaning thus the meaning of the flags is dual and filtered.

I'll post a patch to forbid --live and --config here.

Now fixed upstream:

    virsh-domain: Mark --live and --config mutually exclusive in vcpucount
    The 'vcpucount' command is a getter command for the vCPUu count. When
    one or more of the filtering flags are specified the command returns the
    value only for the selected combination. In this case the --live and
    --config combination isn't valid. This however didn't cause errors as
    the combination of flags was rejected by the libvirt API but then the
    fallback code kicked in and requested the count in a way where the clash
    of the flags didn't matter.
    Mark the flag combination mutually exclusive so that users aren't

Verify this bug with libvirt-1.1.1-13.el7.x86_64,the following was the verify steps.

1.Start a guest and check the vcpu.
# virsh dumpxml rhel1 | grep vcpu -A 3
  <vcpu placement='static'>2</vcpu>

#virsh vcpucount rhel1 --live --current
#virsh vcpucount rhel1 --config --current

2.Edited the guest's xml and set the vcpu to 4,then check the vcpu
#virsh vcpucount rhel1 --live --current
#virsh vcpucount rhel1 --config --current

For libvirt-1.1.1-10.el7.x86_64:
#virsh vcpu rhel1 --config --live --current

#virsh vcpu rhel1 --config --live

For libvirt-1.1.1-13.el7.x86_64:
#virsh vcpu rhel1 --config --live --current
error: Options --live and --config are mutually exclusive

# virsh vcpucount rhel1 --config --live
error: Options --live and --config are mutually exclusive

Do the upper steps and I can get the error message,so mark this bug verifed.
