Description Daniel Veillard 2009-06-02 08:04:41 EDT
Description of problem:
Problem raised by Kaitlin Rupert <kaitlin@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

libvirt-cim generates an incorrect <boot> tag for fully virtualized Xen

The tag is generated as <boot>hd</boot>, but it should be generated as <boot
dev='hd'/> instead.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to define a guest (be sure to specify a disk) using DefineSystem()
   CIM interface
2. Attempt to start that guest

Alternatively, if you have cimtest setup, you can run the following test:

Actual results:
missing boot device error

ComputerSystem - 05_activate_defined_start.py: FAIL
You will see the following error:
>> ERROR     - Got CIM error CIM_ERR_FAILED: Failed to define domain:
>> internal error missing boot device with return code 1
>> ERROR     - ERROR: VS 'DomST1' was not defined
>> InvokeMethod(DefineSystem): CIM_ERR_FAILED: Failed to define domain:
>> internal error missing boot device
Expected results:

Guest start normally
