Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506263
Attempting to display a remote VM being viewed by another user hangs virt-manager
Last modified: 2010-05-05 16:25:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Connecting to a remote libvirtd with virt-manager and attempting to view the console of a running VM being viewed already by another user causes virt-manager to hang until it is forcibly killed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a VM on a remote libvirt instance. Start that VM.
2. From one machine, remotely connect to that libvirt instance and view the VM. This should work as expected.
3. From a second machine, while the first machine is still viewing the VM, attempt to remotely connect and view that same VM. This will lock up virt-manager.
virt-manager is locked and must be killed to proceed.
Either the second client should receive a notice that the VM is currently being viewed and is inaccessible, or the second client should be able to also view the VM.
Hmm, seems to work fine here on F12. This bug is pretty old and I haven't heard other similar complaints, so maybe it's no longer an issue. Closing as WORKSFORME, but if you can reproduce with a current fedora version, please reopen and assign to the correct product so we can follow up from there.
