Description Chris Lalancette 2007-08-24 15:11:53 EDT
Description of problem:
On an ia64 dom0, attempting to run:

# xm save <hvm-guest> /var/lib/xen/save/hvm-guest-save

on an HVM guest fails to do anything.  In particular, it writes out the header
file to /var/lib/xen/save/hvm-guest-save, but doesn't write any data in there. 
It also doesn't pause the domain.  Note that there seem to be no ill effects on
either the guest or the dom0; the save just doesn't work.  In
/var/log/xen/xend.log, I see the following:

Comment 1 Martine Silbermann 2007-09-26 10:54:40 EDT
The error report is correct "Function not implemented"; it's not supported 
upstream either.
Comment 5 Chris Lalancette 2009-09-10 12:23:00 EDT
Closing this out; there are other bugs open to request this feature, and this is very stale.

Comment 6 Paolo Bonzini 2010-04-08 11:43:10 EDT
This bug was closed during 5.5 development and it's being removed from the internal tracking bugs (which are now for 5.6).
Comment 7 Chris Lalancette 2010-07-19 09:38:38 EDT
Clearing out old flags for reporting purposes.
