the fedora10.xml I'm using in RHEV
Description of problem:
with a written xml file define a guest,and then start it,access the guest via vnc，get a Fatal error: fail to boot from CDROM.Back to the host,virsh dumpxml ,have found the <source file='/diretory/to/the/iso/file.iso'/> was missing under the <disk type='file' >
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Frequently not always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.define a guest with the attached file # virsh define fedora10.xml
2.# virsh start fedora10
3.# vncviewer $HOSTIP:PORT
Fatal error: fail to boot,<source file='/diretory/to/the/iso/file.iso'/> was missing
the xml <source file> brunch will not be missed
Moving to RHEL since libvirt is not supported in RHEV1.0 production builds and this problem will need to be addressed in RHEL5.4 release
Hum, I have tried to reproduce the same problem using the same kind of
setting, except for the network configuration of the guest and when
trying for more than 6 times I always got the Welcome to Fedora 10
prompt showing that the iso file was being loaded.
So I have no idea how to test this, I can't reproduce the problem myself.
Any idea ?
as it is not a 100% reproducible bug,I really can't point out a pretty idea for your request, but I want to check:
1.whether you used the libvirt-0.5.1-3.el5ovirt to check this issue?
2.and you could check with the dumpxml when you're running the guest,even when it could start well, then reboot it via #virsh destroy fedora10 and then #virsh start fedora10,replicate this more times.
