RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Dan Kenigsberg 2010-01-13 08:17:18 UTC
Some time in rhev-6.0 we would like to have vdsm fire up VMs via libvirt, and not through qemu directly. To simplify future development, I'd like to add some of the basic support right now, turned off by default. Turning it on depends on having newer (and still unavailable) libvirt.

Comment 1 Dan Kenigsberg 2010-01-13 10:26:36 UTC
this change must not have any effect on vdsm behavior. it will always be off outside my test machines. qa should not worry about it, though as in any change, few bugs might be creeping.

Comment 2 Barak 2010-01-21 15:07:24 UTC
Didn't make it into 2.2 moving it to 3.0

Comment 3 Haim 2010-05-23 12:29:31 UTC
vdsm and libvirt integration effort started already and most of the basic features are working, thus, we have a tracker bug for libvirt and vdsm intergeneration effort - bz 581275 (contains all bugs opened on this project already) .
closing this bug as verified. 

currently we support the following: 

- create command is done using libvirt while we create an xml and fire it up via 
- vm life-cycle (start, stop, pause, migrate)
