Description of problem:
when trying to use virsh metadata i get error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainGetMetadata
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
virsh metadata yourVM http://libvirt.org/schemas/console-proxy/1.0
error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainGetMetadata
What hypervisor driver are you using? Not every driver implements that function currently.
Look for virDomainGetMetadata in https://libvirt.org/hvsupport.html
Ahh. Now that makes sense.
I use libxl driver.
But whats the trouble in allowing this for all drivers. Since its just metadata?
There's no reason why it can't be implemented, it is simply a matter of someone having the time to write the code & submit it.
Till then, is there any workaround to use your console-proxy?
Thanks in advance!
In general you probably shouldn't use the console proxy as while the idea is great, I can't claim the impl is finished / production ready
It was however designed to have a pluggable backend - the backend that uses the metadata was just a simple example one. It is easy to come up with other backends
Patch proposed upstream:
You are awesome. Thanks!
Is there any fund e.g. to send tip to the dev team?
Pushed upstream as v5.6.0-4-g0f68e1c9ba.

No, but don't worry about it.
