Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 499838
Libvirt (virt-manager, virsh) fail to launch any virtual machines
Last modified: 2009-05-09 18:22:07 EDT
Description of problem:
After installing the latest libvirt from rawhide, my virtual machines (all of them KVM based) no longer seem to start. Instead, the libvirt tools tell me that the machine "didn't show up". Virtual machines did work fine a few days ago.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always on this machine
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest updates from Rawhide
2. Try to start a virtual machine with virt-manager or virsh
[root@localhost ~]# virsh start Rawhide0
error: Failed to start domain Rawhide0
error: internal error Domain Rawhide0 didn't show up
No errors, virtual machines start normally.

Libvirt's log file for a virtual machine that is having problems starting
The issue seems to be somehow related to SELinux. It is possible that I just have some files mislabeled. After setenforce 0, my virtual machines seem to work again. They used to work without disabling SELinux, though.
