Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 239532
please enable QEMU monitor option
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:04 EST
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 /
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.
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.
