Comment 2 Pavel Hrdina 2016-05-31 11:20:14 UTC
This feature was removed by commit:

commit 839ce682b1e9dc792dd4ebe9bb611f0af1109adc
Author: Cole Robinson <crobinso>
Date:   Sat Apr 11 13:52:48 2015 -0400

    Drop support for non-managed save/restore
    All major drivers either support it, or don't support save at all,
    so I think we can safely drop it. If people still need it they can
    get by with virsh.

But that commit forget to remove also this menu option, so this feature doesn't work anymore and is replaced by "Shutdown -> Save" which is handled by managedsave feature provided by libvirt.

Comment 5 XiaoyunHu 2016-06-23 03:16:14 UTC
I can reproduce this bug with package:

Steps are the same as description above.

Then try to verify with new build:

1. Launch virt-manager.

2. Make sure there is a guest in saved status.

3. Click on one connection(QEMU/KVM) -->Edit --> Connection Details -->File, check if there is "Restore Saved Machine..." button.

4. Right click the restored machine, and click "Restore" button.

After step3, the "Restore Saved Machine..." button does not appear.
After step4, the guest can be restored successfully.

According to the result above in the latest version of virt-manager, move this bug from ON_QA to VERIFIED.
