How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start virt-manager and create a new guest domain, such as 'demo'
2. # virsh destroy demo
3. # virsh undefine demo
4. Using virt-manager to create a guest domain with the same name 'demo' (Don't close the virt-manager during above operations)

Can you retest this with 5.3 to see if this is a regression or not?  We want to make sure we track it as such if it is a regression.

Comment 3 Nan Zhang 2009-07-10 02:25:46 EDT
Yes, I retest this with libvirt-0.6.3-14.el5 on rhel-5.3, it also occurs. It's maybe a regression issue.
Comment 4 Chris Lalancette 2009-07-10 03:43:48 EDT
No, that doesn't help.  If there is a problem, it's probably with libvirt.  What I'm curious about is whether this used to work with the 5.3 versions of the package (libvirt 0.3.3, etc), and is now broken, or whether it was always broken.

Comment 5 Nan Zhang 2009-07-10 09:15:42 EDT
I retry it on libvirt 0.3.3 with 5.3, but this issue can not be reproduced. I'm not sure if it's the virt-manager's bug.
Comment 6 Chris Lalancette 2009-07-10 09:54:46 EDT
OK, thanks for the extra testing.  That means it's a regression from 5.3, so we have to track it like that.  I'll set the right keywords.

Can you confirm whether this is still a problem. 

In another bug:


we fixed a problem with libvirt /etc/xen handling, with it not refreshing the list of domains. I think that problem would also cause the scenario described in this bug.
Comment 13 Nan Zhang 2009-10-30 03:17:29 EDT
Yes, I think it's already fixed, I just retest this bug on the latest libvirt 0.6.3-21.el5 for rhel 5.4.
Comment 14 Daniel Veillard 2009-12-11 09:30:35 EST
Okay thanks !
Closing it then,
