I created a VM on a 3 gigabyte disk file.
File> Restore Virtual Machine> Selected the disk file.
virt-manager deletes it.

Quality stuff.

Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2006-10-26 20:47:00 UTC
The 'restore' menu options isn't for starting inactive domains, its actually for
restoring guests that have previously been suspended (aka hibernated/saved). So
it is not expecting a raw disk image, but instead a VM suspend image. That said
it ought to have detected that you supplied a bogus image & refused to proceed,
rather than deleting it.

Comment 2 Need Real Name 2006-10-26 20:52:40 UTC
It's amazing that it deleted it.

Maybe the restore option could be more explicit too.
I had powered off a VM and wanted to run it again. I presumed that was right.

Comment 3 Hugh Brock 2007-06-14 18:20:18 UTC
This is now fixed with validation that the image we are trying to get xen to
restore is in fact a valid Xen Paravirt image.
