virtmanager-GUI writes "localhost status:disconnected", but virt machines are running
Last modified: 2009-12-14 16:16:46 EST
Description of problem:
GUI of virtmanager writes localhost disconnected, but virt machines are running
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.create or start some virt-machines
Localhost status is written disconnected, but all virtmachines are running
There should be written localhost connected, because all virt-machines are
running in background.
This is not a bug, the terminology here is just a bit misleading. Virt manager
can connect to multiple hypervisors at the same time, with each hypervisor
listed as a tree entry and its VMs as the entries children. Since you may not
want an active connection to each hypervisor, polling for resources/taking up
bandwidth, you can connect or disconnect from each hypervisor indivdually. On
start up all connections are disconnected, which is what you are seeing. Double
click the connection and it will connect, listing your VMs.
Closing as NOTABUG.
