Description of problem:
I started virt-manager and created a new VM. Installed RHEL5.3 from a local iso in the VM. Everything works until the installation is finished and I press the "reboot" button. After that the VM does not boot anymore.
The following error appears:
Error starting domain: internal error Domain RHEL5 didn't show up
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/engine.py", line 493, in run_domain
File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/domain.py", line 573, in startup
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 287, in create
if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainCreate() failed', dom=self)
libvirtError: internal error Domain RHEL5 didn't show up
Even after a reboot trying to start the VM won't work and give the above error.
However qemu-kvm /var/lib/libvirt/images/RHEL5.img works fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new VM in virt-manager
2. install RHEL5.3 in it (from ISO)
3. reboot the VM
virt-manager does not start the VM and returns an error
virt-manager starts the VM
My guess is this is a dup of bug 499569. Can you check /var/log/libvirt/qemu/<vmname>.log and see if the error matches comment #1 in 499569?
There is no /var/log/libvirt/qemu/RHEL5.log. However after looking at bug 499569 I tried to disable selinux and after restarting libvirtd the VM showed up.
Does the guest still fail if you re-enable selinux? If so, please include the output of 'ausearch -m AVC -ts recent"
There should be a log for the guest in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/, also please include that
Finally, what versions of libvirt/python-virtinst/virt-manager/qemu-system-x86 is this?
- re-enabled selinux
- restarted libvirtd
- installed RHEL5 in VM
-> works now
Guess this got fixed somewhere along the way :)
