Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441653
vcpu can not be set to more than 1
Last modified: 2008-09-16 11:42:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Both virt-manager and virt-install decline of setting virtual cpu count to any
higher than 1. Using qemu-kvm I get to set it to higher. I'm currently
installing rhel5 for 2 virtualcpu virtual machine via qemu-kvm.
The real CPU is 4 core intel 5420, which should work.
I'm running Fedora 9 beta with rawhide updates.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux whipper 2.6.25-0.204.rc8.git4.fc9.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Apr 7 10:25:52 EDT
2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
every time the same failure.
Steps to Reproduce:
Open the virtual machine manager and start creating a new machine. Try setting
vcpu count to higher than 1.
$ sudo virt-install -n virt-install-fail -r 1024 --vcpus=2 -f
/tmp/virt-install.img -s 2000 -v --vnc -c /home/itengval/Desktop/boot-i386.iso
--os-type=linux --os-variant=rhel5 --connect qemu:///system --accelerate
"ERROR: Number of vcpus must be in the range of 1-1"
Just use 2 cpu's as instructed. By using qemu-kvm directly it works.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This is libvirt reporting the wrong info for the KVM cpu limit.
