Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 260981
virt-install: incorrect domain XML (<source file=''/>) prevents domain from rebooting after install
Last modified: 2008-01-22 10:32:36 EST
Description of problem:
After an install of a fullvirt 32-bit FreeBSD 6.2 guest on
Fedora Rawhide from an ISO image, the first reboot fails
with an error message about missing drive [I don't have the
original error message and it doesn't seem to have been saved
After investigation, I did 'virsh dumpxml freebsd32fv' and found
<disk type='file' device='cdrom'>
This seems to be causing the domain to fail to reboot. Removing
just the <source file=''/> element is sufficient to make the domain
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(Only tried it once).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download 6.2-RELEASE-i386-bootonly.iso from freebsd.org
2. Install FreeBSD from this ISO using virt-manager.
3. Reboot at the end of the install.
Domain fails to reboot.
Domain should reboot.
