Description Cole Robinson 2010-05-26 20:31:13 UTC
$ rpm -q qemu-system-x86

Filed against F13 even though this is an F12 box, since I'm using rawvirt repo which provides F13 rebuilds.

If the source qemu instance can't connect to the migration destination (say there is no listening QEMU instance, or port is blocked by a firewall), all we get is info migrate -> Migration status: failed. This is all we have to report back to libvirt users if their firewall is misconfigured, which is crappy.

Ideally, if we can't connect, migration would fail immediately with a relevant message and strerror(). More info from 'info migrate' would be nice too, no idea how this will play with QMP though.

As a slightly related issue, try entering

migrate tcp:

We get a 'migration failed' error, and then the monitor hangs!

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2011-06-02 13:21:31 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2011-06-07 16:00:12 UTC
still relevant AFAIK

Comment 3 Fedora Admin XMLRPC Client 2012-03-15 17:59:01 UTC
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 4 Cole Robinson 2012-12-14 23:05:28 UTC
I pushed this to the upstream tracker long ago:


Closing this bug as tracking it Fedora hasn't yeilded anything
