Description Hao Liu 2013-10-31 05:52:15 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1025230 +++

Description of problem:
libvirt activate pool with invalid source.

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

How reproducible:

1. Define a pool with an invalid source.
# cat test_pool.xml 
<pool type='fs'>
    <device path='/dev/notexist'/>
    <format type='ext3'/>

# virsh pool-define test_pool.xml

2. Try to start the pool.
# virsh pool-start test_pool
error: Failed to start pool test_pool
error: internal error: Child process (/usr/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/notexist /mnt) unexpected exit status 32: mount: special device /dev/notexist does not exist

# virsh pool-list --all
Name                 State      Autostart 
default              active     yes       
test_pool            inactive   no   

3. Mount a valid fs to target path.
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt

4. Restart libvirt daemon.
# service libvirtd restart

5. The invalid pool is active.
# virsh pool-list --all
Name                 State      Autostart 
default              active     yes       
test_pool            active     no    

Expected result:
The pool with invalid source should be checked and not be activated when starting libvirt daemon.
