Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 593311
rhelsvc explicitly looks at the device class of the PCI platform device
Last modified: 2010-11-22 18:34:48 EST
Description of problem:
rhelsvc uses the PCI class/subclass to detect the PCI platform device. This breaks "xm block-detach" with the 1.1.0-2 drivers and the latest 5.5.z RHEL kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.1.0-2 with xen-3.0.3-105.el5_5.2 or newer
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a guest
2. Attach a PV disk
3. Invoke "xm block-detach" command on the PV disk
"xm block-detach" fails.
"xm block-detach" detaches the disk.
Verified with xenpv-win-1.2.0-1.el5.noarch.rpm passed.
1.Install windows 2008 R2 on the guest
2.Install xenpv-win driver
3.Attach a PV disk
4.Run xm block-detach <Domain> <DevId>
5.Run xm block-list <Domain>
Verify the disk is detached from the windows guest.
Technical note added. If any revisions are required, please edit the "Technical Notes" field
accordingly. All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
With xen-3.0.3-105.el5_5.2 or newer installed on the host, sending the "xm block-detach" to the guest with attached para-virtualized disk used to fail, not detaching the disk.
