Description Guo, Zhiyi 2016-05-30 09:55:20 UTC
Description of problem:
OVMF_CODE.fd should exist under /usr/share/OVMF/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ovmf package: ovmf-20160419-2.git90bb4c5.el7
kernel:3.10.0-414.el7.x86_64
qemu-kvm-rhev:qemu-kvm-rhev-2.6.0-4.el7.x86_64

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install OVMF-20150414-2.gitc9e5618.el7.noarch.rpm first and follow steps of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1308678#c1, upgrade ovmf package to ovmf-20160419-2.git90bb4c5.el7 as steps and continue.
2.
3.

Actual results:
virt-manager report error:
Error starting domain: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: 2016-05-30T09:45:34.204380Z qemu-kvm: -drive file=/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.fd,if=pflash,format=raw,unit=0,readonly=on: Could not open '/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.fd': No such file or directory

Expected results:
At this point we have verified that a firmware binary has been preserved
under the previous pathname (/usr/share/OVMF/OVMF_CODE.fd), that the secure
boot feature has been removed from it, and that preexistent guests continue
working with it

I think you must have missed the following comments:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1308678#c10
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1308678#c12

The disappearance of the "OVMF_CODE.fd" file is fully intentional. So I'm closing this one as NOTABUG. If you would like to know more, please follow the internal mailing list links in the second comment noted above. Thanks.
