Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 371631
doesn't automatically see changes
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:11:26 EDT
Description of problem:
When editing the XML machine description by hand to remove a device, I can't
actually restart the domain without restarting libvirtd; it doesn't see the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
You can send it a SIGHUP (or /etc/init.d/libvirtd reload).
Guess we could hook up to inotify though to watch for changes.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This bug is pretty old, and since it was filed we have tried to steer people away from editing XML files directly in /etc/libvirt/*, instead using 'virsh edit'.
Closing as WONTFIX.
