Description Matthias Clasen 2006-10-20 10:47:12 EDT
Sometimes when I press the "Finish" button, the graphical console does not come
up. The vm starts running ok though, and I can get the console by opening it
from virt-manager...

Also, I think the wizard window should close as soon as the window with the
progressbar comes up. Or at least it should become insensitive.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2006-10-25 09:47:36 EDT
Change to disable sensisitivity during VM creation is upstream


Need to further investigate cause of console not always appearing.
Comment 2 Bernard Johnson 2006-12-03 00:24:41 EST
Regarding the wizard window not closing:

I have the preference set to automatically open a new console on new domains.  I
don't get a console nor does the wizard close (in the normal failure mode - it
does work sometimes).  

I suspect that the console creation is throwing an error and it's being caught
further up (thus bypassing the window.close() statement).
Comment 3 Daniel Berrange 2006-12-03 09:46:43 EST
Does the guest domain itself actually get created though, or has the guest
domain failed to start ? (If domain creation fails, then we delibrately don't
open the console window & leave the wizard visible)

If you can check /root/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log to see if there's any
errors that'd be helpful.
Comment 4 Bernard Johnson 2006-12-03 14:48:11 EST
Yes, the guest is created and running.  If I double-click on the VMM display for
the host I just started, the console opens.

I should note that I first mistyped the install location and kickstart URLs the
first time I tried to create the domain.  Perhaps some status is getting left
over from that and then the next time I try it doesn't open a console.

Here is a failure to open the console when the the new domain is created.

Comment 5 Daniel Berrange 2006-12-19 16:22:16 EST
Closing this bug a duplicate, because we've since successfully reproduced &
diagnosed this problem in bug 220036 (even though this bug was first, the other
has more details).
