Description Chuck Morrison 2007-07-25 11:24:25 EDT
Description of problem:

There are times when trying to delete a flubbed domain install when file->delete
does nothing. Clicking on the delete button on the bottom does result in the
domain being removed from the list of domains.

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


How reproducible:

intermittent. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a virtual domain
2. try to delete it using the menu file->delete
Actual results:

often, nothing happens

Expected results:

The domain should disappear from the list of domains.

I verified that this remains an issue on both x86_64 and ia64, at least.  Here
is the sequence I used:

1. virt-install --hvm --name=hvm2 ...
2. at the screen where it asks how to partition (remove linux partitions, use
   default layout, etc) I switched to another terminal on dom0 and ran 
   "xm destroy hvm1"
3. in virt-manager, the machine is listed as "Shutoff".  I selected it, then
   chose Edit->Delete Machine.  Nothing happened.
4. I clicked the [Delete] button at the bottom of the window and it was deleted
   as expected.

I did this on both ia64 and x86_64 with the same result.

Still an issue with rhel5.1(ga)
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2008-06-23 17:10:29 EDT
I haven't been able to reproduce this in 5.1 or 5.2. If in 5.1, can you run
virt-manager from the command line and see if an error is thrown when the delete
fails? If you can still reproduce this on 5.2, can you check
~/.virt-manager/virt-manager.log? Thanks.
Comment 4 Chuck Morrison 2008-08-18 18:55:01 EDT
I've tried this without success in rhel5.2, so I'll consider it fixed unless it shows up again. There have been many changes to virt-manager in 5.2 and I have to assume based on recent testing, that it has been fixed.
