Description Ilkka Tengvall 2008-04-09 11:14:39 UTC
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

How reproducible:

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 

Actual results:
"ERROR:  Number of vcpus must be in the range of 1-1"

Expected results:
Just use 2 cpu's as instructed. By using qemu-kvm directly it works.

This is libvirt reporting the wrong info for the KVM cpu limit.
