Cannot use virt-manager to create new guest with the same name after undefine the guest on Xen
Last modified: 2009-12-14 16:23:58 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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)
Guest name 'demo' is already in use.
The guest domain 'demo' can be used.
No this issue on KVM.
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.
Yes, I retest this with libvirt-0.6.3-14.el5 on rhel-5.3, it also occurs. It's maybe a regression issue.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Okay thanks !
Closing it then,
