Comment 2 Daniel Berrange 2008-04-16 09:05:56 EDT
Have you actually verified that Win2k8 works under RHEL-5.2 Xen ? All previous
attempts to run it failed at one point or another.

Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Comment 7 Cole Robinson 2008-06-24 12:19:01 EDT
Thanks, committed upstream. I'll pull this in for 5.3

Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2008-07-15 10:56:02 EDT
FYI, easy way to test this:

virt-install --connect test:///default -n somevm -r 256 --nodisks --hvm --pxe
--nographics --os-type windows --os-variant win2k8

Pre patch this will fail with a ValueError exception. Post patch will end with a
message like 'Domain installation still in progress'.
Comment 9 Cole Robinson 2008-09-14 20:03:05 EDT
Okay, fix is in python-virtinst-0.300.2-9.el5. Setting to MODIFIED.
