Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2011-10-07 16:11:35 UTC
Since RHEL 6.2 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2011-10-13 19:39:03 UTC
I can't reproduce this. I followed your steps, when guest install completed, I cliked anaconda's (the RHEL5 installer) reboot button. guest shutdown, rebooted, and correctly booted into the operating system.

Can you regularly reproduce this issue? If so, please provide the output of virt-manager --debug when following your above steps.

Since I can't reproduce, deferring to 6.2 for now.

Comment 4 Daisy Wu 2011-10-17 02:24:51 UTC
The libvirt-0.9.4-9.el6 was deleted on the brewweb server, then I can not reproduce this issue on below environment, so closed current release.
