Description Daniel Berrangé 2017-04-04 10:20:24 UTC
Description of problem:
The QGA schema says

# @can-offline: Whether offlining the VCPU is possible. This member
#               is always filled in by the guest agent when the structure is
#               returned, and always ignored on input (hence it can be omitted
#               then).

but the *Windows* implementation of 'guest-get-vcpus' simply does

             vcpu->has_can_offline = false;

which means 'can-offline' is missing entirely from the reply. This causes errors in libvirt which is expecting the reply to be compliant with the schema docs

error: internal error: 'can-offline' missing in reply of guest-get-vcpus

The guest agent code should be doing

             vcpu->has_can_offline = true;
             vcpu->can_offline = false;

I tried to execute 'guest-get-vcpus' in qemu-ga-win-7.4.3-1.
{"return": [{"online": true, "logical-id": 0}, {"online": true, "logical-id": 1}, {"online": true, "logical-id": 2}, {"online": true, "logical-id": 3}]}

From comment 0, what will the expect result be in rhel7.4? And do we still not support 'guest-set-vcpus' in windows guest in rhel7.4?

I noticed that rhel guest's result is like following:

Is the result expected in windows guest like this?


Comment 3 Yan Vugenfirer 2017-04-12 09:02:28 UTC
There is no support for guest-set-vcpus  in Windows.

Can offline should be false.

Comment 5 xiagao 2017-06-09 05:49:51 UTC
verified this bug on qemu-ga-win-7.4.5-1

{"return": [{"online": true, "can-offline": false, "logical-id": 0}, {"online": true, "can-offline": false, "logical-id": 1}]}
