new vm wizard issues
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:35 EST
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
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.
Change to disable sensisitivity during VM creation is upstream
Need to further investigate cause of console not always appearing.
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).
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.
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.

diagnosed this problem in bug 220036 (even though this bug was first, the other
has more details).
