Description Mark McLoughlin 2009-05-06 09:46:47 EDT
When using virt-install --host-device, the device XML looks like this:

    <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'>
        <address domain='0' bus='0' slot='25' function='0'/>

With managed='yes', libvirt doesn't detach or reset the device before starting the guest, nor does it it re-attach it when the guest is shut down.

AFAICS, this is just a typo and we actually want "managed='no'"

Okay, it turns out "managed='yes'" is supposed to detach/reset/reattach the device, not "managed='no'"

The fix should be as simple as:
