Description Bob Doolittle 2014-06-06 14:39:07 UTC
Description of problem:

Running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise

After installing ovirt-guest-tools-3.5-1.iso, service came up as expected.
Upon reboot, however it did not.

Running services.msc, I see that OVirt Guest Agent Service has "Startup Type" of "Manual".

After changing this to "Automatic", the service starts automatically upon reboot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

3.5-1 alpha

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount CD
2. Run ovirt-guest-tools-3.5-1.exe in VM
3. Reboot VM

Actual results:

Service does not start

Expected results:

Service should start automatically.

Comment 1 Lev Veyde 2014-06-08 09:22:03 UTC
My mistake...

I debugged it and it is due to the way Python's win32serviceutil module works.
By default the service is installed in manual mode, unless a command line option is supplied to change this behaviour (-auto).

Will fix this in the oVirt WGT installer.

Comment 2 Jiri Belka 2014-07-24 11:47:49 UTC
ovirt GT 3.5.5 has automatic for the service.

Comment 3 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-10-17 12:40:07 UTC
oVirt 3.5 has been released and should include the fix for this issue.
