Description Tatsuro Enokura 2007-05-09 03:50:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When I enter "Ctrl-Alt-2" to change a CDROM during installation, 
the guest's conslole don't turn into QEMU monitor. 
I understand this behavior because the QEMU monitor would not be secure.
So, "xm create" command and config file add "monitor" option at 
xen-unstable changeset 14822.
Please apply this option for xen package and handle this option for 
libvirt, python-virtinst and virt-manager.

- Intel T2400 host machine, 1.83 Ghz, 2 GB ram.
- fedora7 test4 installed
- Make HVM domain to use virt-manager to install a guest on multiple CDROMs /
ISO images.

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1. HVM domain create to install a guest on multiple CDROMs / ISO images 
   using virt-manager or virt-install command.
2. Enter "Ctrl-Alt-2" on the guest console when the guest installer demand
   to change the next cdrom / ISO image.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2007-10-30 16:07:16 EDT
libvirt now has explicit API support for changing CDROM media. There is a button
in virt-manager to do this. As previously noted, exposing the QEMU monitor
console is a security risk & serves no purpose since its actions are available
via real APIs.
