Description Eli Mesika 2012-07-09 10:37:10 EDT
Description of problem:

libvirt has changed package name from libvirt to libvirt-daemon.
As a result, vdsm fails in start_libvirtd while trying to find
libvirt instead of libvirt-daemon
vdsm should add libvirt-daemon to the package list defined in

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

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. update libvirt version to libvirt-0.9.13-2.el6.x86_64
2. update your vdsm version to vdsm-4.9.6-17.0.el6.x86_64
3. restart vdsmd 
Actual results:

[root@pluto-vdsa ~]# service vdsmd restart
 Shutting down vdsm daemon: 
 vdsm watchdog stop                                         [  OK  ]
 vdsm: not running                                          [FAILED]
 Stopping libvirtd daemon:                                  [FAILED]
 vdsm: libvirt already configured for vdsm                  [  OK  ]
 Starting iscsid: 
 diff: : No such file or directory
 /bin/cp: cannot stat `': No such file or directory
 vdsm: one of the dependent services did not start, error co[FAILED]

Expected results:
vdsm should support both old libvirt and new libvirt-daemon packages

Eli, if you have a fix, please mention it in bugzilla, too.


Barak, libvirt-daemon was introduced in libvirt v0.9.12. Which I do not expect would surprise us in rhel-6.3.z. So you were correct in removing the flag.

Based on previous comments, moving the bug to upstream.
