Description Guowen Shan 2019-11-26 22:21:25 UTC
Description of problem:

Installed RHEL8.2 and last AV packages, the migration can't be done because of below error:

[root@amd-seattle-07 ~]# virsh migrate --live rhel8 qemu+ssh://
error: params in virTypedParamsFilter must not be NULL

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Provision two machines (AMD Seattles) with RHEL-8.2.0-20191119.n.0
2. Install the last AV packages from below link

   host# yum module disable virt:rhel
   host# yum module enable virt:8.2
   host# yum install -y qemu-kvm libvirt virt-install
   host# service libvirtd restart
3. Configured the virtual network bridge
   nmcli con down <wired-con-name>   # determine name with 'nmcli con show'
   nmcli con modify <wired-con-name> autoconnect no
   nmcli con add type bridge ifname br0 stp no
   nmcli con add type bridge-slave ifname <wired-if-name> master br0 # determine name with 'ip addr show'
       nmcli con up bridge-br0
4. Install guests
   # virt-install -n rhel8 --vcpus 8 --memory 4096 --disk size=6 --network bridge=br0 \
     --boot loader=/usr/share/AAVMF/AAVMF_CODE.fd,loader.readonly=yes,loader.type=pflash,nvram.template=/usr/share/AAVMF/AAVMF_VARS.fd,loader_secure=no \
      -l http://download.devel.redhat.com/rhel-8/nightly/RHEL-8/latest-RHEL-8/compose/BaseOS/aarch64/os/
5. Setup NFS server so that two guests can share same disk image;
   Disable disk's cache through "virsh edit <machine_name>";
   Tell SELinux it's ok for virt use;
6 Start one guest and migrate it to target.
   # virsh migrate --live rhel8 qemu+ssh://
   error: params in virTypedParamsFilter must not be NULL

Actual results:

The migration can't be started.

Expected results:

The migration can be started without error.

The migration should be

    qemu: Fix migration without parameters

    The virTypedParamsFilter function doesn't mind params == NULL if nparams
    is zero. And there's no need to check for params == NULL && nparams > 0
    because this is checked higher in the stack.

    In fact all the virCheckNonNull* checks in virTypedParamsFilter are

Jiri, please let me know when the patch is ported to RHEL8.2 stream, or you have
a private libvirt build to include the fix. I can try it out for verification

Comment 9 yafu 2020-02-03 13:53:04 UTC
Verified with libvirt-6.0.0-2.el8.x86_64

Test steps:
1.# virsh migrate vm2 qemu+ssh://  --live 

2.#virsh migrate vm2 qemu+ssh://  --live --verbose
Migration: [100 %]

3.# virsh migrate vm2 qemu+ssh://  --postcopy --p2p --live --verbose
Migration: [100 %]

4.# virsh migrate vm2 qemu+ssh://   --p2p --live 

5.# virsh migrate vm2 qemu+ssh://  --postcopy --p2p  --live --postcopy-after-precopy

6.# virsh migrate yafu qemu+ssh://
