Description Darryl L. Pierce 2011-06-24 08:31:20 EDT
Description of problem:

In trying to create a VM for Windows 2008 Server, I consistently get an error. I was able to create VMs for Fedora 15 (32- and 64-bit) without issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new VM in VMM
2. Select a Windows 2008 ISO image downloaded from MSDN.
3. Finish configuring the system (1G RAM, 50G virtual disk, single NIC) and click finish.
Actual results:

The error message listed below.

Expected results:

A virt-viewer window that shows me the VM starting up and running.

Additional info:

The error I see in the dialog is:

Unable to complete install: 'Unable to create cgroup for Windows2k8Server: No such file or directory'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/asyncjob.py", line 45, in cb_wrapper
    callback(asyncjob, *args, **kwargs)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/create.py", line 1643, in do_install
    guest.start_install(False, meter=meter)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1187, in start_install
    start_xml, final_xml, is_initial)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/virtinst/Guest.py", line 1246, in _create_guest
    dom = self.conn.createLinux(start_xml or final_xml, 0)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 1346, in createLinux
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virDomainCreateLinux() failed', conn=self)
libvirtError: Unable to create cgroup for Windows2k8Server: No such file or directory

However at this point the virtual disk DOES exist in /var/lib/libvirt/images/ and is as large as expected.
