Description of problem:
libvirt client socket will be closed if open the console of guest in virt-manager with vdsmd service running

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install vdsm packages in rhel7 server and start the vdsmd service                                                                                                                                                
# systemctl status vdsmd

2.Add authentication permission for libvirt
# echo redhat | saslpasswd2 -p -a libvirt test

3.Open the virt-manager and try to open the console of a running guest, but virt-manager will hang  and the connection with qemu is disconnected with below error:

#virt-manager --debug

    if ret is None: raise libvirtError ('virNodeGetInfo() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: internal error: client socket is closed

Actual results:
As above description

Expected results:
Can open the console of guest in virt-manager normally with vdsmd service running

Additional info:
1.I didn't meet this problem on rhel7.6
2.Can't reproduce the bug if open the console of guest using virt-viewer directly

Comment 2 Jaroslav Suchanek 2019-07-19 20:56:55 UTC
This does not look like virt-manager issue. Please attach also libvirt debugs logs. I would close it as notabug just because the combination of vdsm service & virt-manager & libvirt may lead to unpredictable results. I just would like to know what was happening there.


Comment 3 Pavel Hrdina 2019-11-27 12:15:19 UTC
It was already stated in comment 2 that the combination of virt-manager and vdsm is not supported.
