review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for

Comment 3 Chris Lalancette 2010-05-07 15:33:51 UTC
Is the GNOME desktop, or acpid running inside the guest?  Without one of those two there is no application to react to the shutdown event, so it won't work.

Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2010-05-11 17:42:04 UTC
Also, does 'virsh shutdown $vmname' have any different effect?

Comment 5 Justin Clift 2010-05-29 10:52:49 UTC
This may be related to BZ #594596.


If the vm was installed with a "Minimal" installation set, then acpid won't have been installed, causing this behaviour.

Comment 6 Jianjiao Sun 2010-06-07 01:12:43 UTC
Thanks for your kindly reply!
I have test a "full" install,I test the rhel5.4 ,rhel5.5,rhel6 and windows2003,And verified they all work well.
Because I have change the machine some days ago,can't find the environment again.
But the problem had been solved.Therefore this bug can be closed.I will install "minimal"install test BZ #594596 again.
Sorry,I reply so late.Because after I report the bug ,and back to school for a few days , after I returned,other things surrouned it.
