[ppc64le] VM fails to start with a spapr-vscsi interface disk as boot device with message (XML error: target 'sda' duplicated for disk sources)
Last modified: 2016-03-10 02:02:57 EST
Description of problem:
Starting a vm fails with a spapr vscsi disk as boot device. Seems having other disks with that interface attached works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a vm (with default values, Desktop, Custom OS, no nic)
2. Add a disk with spapr-vscsi interface (My tests were 10GB/ with either iscsi/nfs, sparse or not) - disk starts fine.
3. Start the vm
or] (ForkJoinPool-1-worker-1) [72c52cf1] Correlation ID: null, Call Stack: null, Custom Event ID: -1, Message: VM test_vm_4 is down with error. Exit message: XML error: target 'sda' duplicated for disk sources '/rhev/data-center/a723a57a-e118-466e-9b8b-63cf66814f17/1bab0f28-536e-446b-80d3-4c4c0e07789e/images/2f06078a-7d90-4414-a2c5-db20395fe194/4450f84d-49e6-4d09-8f0b-06af212295cb' and '<null>'.
vm starts properly
This also happens if you create a boot device with a different interface and then edit the interface to spapr-vscsi.
There doesn't seems to be an issue
Adding to storage since I think the XML issue falls into that component. Severity high.

Pretty straight forward. creation of test_vm_4 and fails after start (search for duplicated)
Tal, this is high priority due to the PPC focus.
Let's get someone to take a look at this please?
Carlos, can you please attach the VDSM logs also? (all files in "/var/log/vdsm/" in the host which tried to activate the VM)

A new run with same scenario.
starts at 08:20: Create vm, add disk, start the vm, fails at 08:21:56
