Last modified: 2012-06-06 20:10:44 EDT
Description of problem:
When add a Virtio Disk to a running guest from virt-manager, it will pop-up an error message. If I use virsh command to add it, I will get the same error.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch virt-manager: #virt-manager
2.Double-click a vm and click the Run button in the Virtual Machine Details window.
3.Click the Hardware tab.
4.Click Add Hardware button
5.Select Storage in Hardware type droplist and click Forward.
6.Select managed or other existing storage and fill out the Location of Block device(partition), eg: /dev/sda3.
7.Select vitual disk in Device type then click Forward.
8.Click Finish button.
pop-up error message:
internal error unable to execute QEMU command 'drive_add': The command drive_add has not been found
storage can be added successfully
When Device type is USB disk, there is the same error
Reassigning to libvirt.
Is this regression? Did virtio disk hotplug work in f14 or something and we are just getting a check wrong?
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
Since F15 is very close to EOL, closing this as WONTFIX. If anyone can still reliably reproduce this issue on F16 or higher, please reopen.
