Description Xiaodai Wang 2016-01-13 03:17:09 UTC
Description of problem:
The behaviour is different if don't specify security label for static type between rhel6 and rhel7 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-install-1.2.1-8.el7.noarch

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
RHEL7:
# virt-install -n demo -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/demo.img -s 5 -l http://download.englab.nay.redhat.com/pub/rhel/rel-eng/RHEL-7.2-20151030.0/compose/Server/x86_64/os/ --security type='static'

Starting install...
Retrieving file vmlinuz...                                                                                                                                                                  9.8 MB  00:00:00 !!!
Retrieving file initrd.img...                                                                                                                                                                76 MB  00:00:03 !!!
ERROR    XML error: security label is missing
Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.
If it was, you can restart your domain by running:
  virsh --connect qemu:///system start demo
 otherwise, please restart your installation.

 RHEL6:
 #  virt-install -n demo -r 1024 -f /var/lib/libvirt/images/demo.img -s 5 -c /tmp/RHEL5.5-Server-20100322.0-x86_64-DVD.iso --security type='static'
 ERROR    A label must be specified for static security type.

Actual results:
The error is returned after installation begins and the image file is created for rhel7.
The error is returned before installation begins for rhel6.

Expected results:
I think the behavior for rhel6 is better because it will not create any files when error occurs and keep the env more cleaner.

Hi, closing this bug as WONTFIX.  It's good enough to pass the error from libvirt.  From more information see <https://www.redhat.com/archives/virt-tools-list/2016-May/msg00076.html>
