Description weizhang 2011-09-22 11:29:52 UTC
Description of problem:
migration with --dname will fail with error
# virsh migrate --live kvm-rhel6-x86_64 qemu+ssh:// --dname kvm-rhel6-x86_64-new
error: internal error Incoming cookie data had unexpected name kvm-rhel6-x86_64 vs kvm-rhel6-x86_64-new

And on target host, it has a transient domain which named kvm-rhel6-x86_64-new transient domain in shut off status.

it can succeed on rhel6.1 libvirt-, so it is a regression bug

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare 2 hosts and prepare a nfs which is mounted on both hosts, and setting the virt_use_nfs boolean on both sides
# setsebool virt_use_nfs 1
and close the iptable on both sides
# iptables -F

2. Do migration
# virsh migrate --live kvm-rhel6-x86_64 qemu+ssh:// --dname kvm-rhel6-x86_64-new

Actual results:
error:internal error Incoming cookie data had unexpected name kvm-rhel6-x86_64 vs kvm-rhel6-x86_64-new

Expected results:
succeed with no error

Comment 3 Jiri Denemark 2011-09-23 16:03:41 UTC
Oh, migration cookie handling was enhanced in a way that is incompatible with dname. We send domain name as part of migration cookie and check that the name matches when parsing the cookie. However, source libvirtd sends old name in the cookie and destination libvirtd expects to see the new name there because it is always taken from the domain object. Fixing this would require explicitly passing name of the domain to functions that handle migration cookies.

This is fixed upstream by

commit cdd5ef7b0776c5fa09a1b5bcb5d8adbc82b525bd

    qemu: Fix migration with dname
    Destination libvirtd remembers the original name in the prepare phase
    and clears it in the finish phase. The original name is used when
    comparing domain name in migration cookie.

verify pass on

with --dname, there is no error on migration.
