Description Daniel Berrange 2008-12-10 09:43:47 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #473882 +++

There are two core problems with block detach

 - virsh & xm both pass 'type=vbd' even for TAP devices. This causes the wrong device controller to be used. This is the cause of the detach failure. This patch checks for the bogus type=vbd and fixes it

 - The /vm/$UUID/device/{vbd,tap}/$DEVID  path is not removed from xenstore, preventing a later re-attachment. This patch removes that path upon detach

This bug is to track the correct fixing of 'xm' command wrt to type=tap parameter.

Well, I've been already solving bug #484110 which appears to be duplicate. If it's not please give me some information about information about the problem.
