Description Fangge Jin 2016-03-03 20:59:29 EST
Description of problem:
Do managedsave for a running domain, then rename the domain, and start it again, guest will start freshly instead of starting from the saved status.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
0.Start a guest
# virsh start rhel7.2
Domain rhel7.2 started

1. Do managedsave:
# virsh managedsave rhel7.2

Domain rhel7.2 state saved by libvirt

# ls /var/lib/libvirt/qemu/save/rhel7.2.save

2. Rename the domain
# virsh domrename rhel7.2 new
Domain successfully renamed

3. Start guest again
# virsh start new
Domain new started

Check guest OS booting process, it doesn't boot from the state it's saved.

# ls /var/lib/libvirt/qemu/save/rhel7.2.save

Actual results:
Guest will start freshly instead of starting from the saved status after renaming

Expected results:
Libvirt should reject to rename a domain in saved status.

    qemu: rename: Forbid renaming domains with managed save image
    The code does not handle renaming of the save state file. In addition to
    that the resuming code would need to be tweaked to handle the name
    change since the XML is extracted from the save image. The easies option
    is to make the rename API even less useful by forbiding this.
