Feature Request: Inclusion of serial port redirection to a file in rhel
Last modified: 2013-11-03 20:37:16 EST
Description of problem:
This is a feature request spun off of #465148 . It'd be helpful for our automated testing efforts if we could have serial port redirection to a file feature included in RHEL.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Pretty certain this is present in upstream libvirt, so we get this for free if we rebase.
This is available in 0.6.1 rebase.
Usage for logging to a file is described here
Add the following section to guest domain xml.
Edit guest menu.lst, append the following to kernel line to support serial port output, and reboot guest domain.
On host, cat /var/log/serial.log, boot messages was displayed.
This bug has been verified with libvirt 0.6.3-3 on rhel-5.4. Fixed.
