Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 846406
virDomainReset not implemented with ESX
Last modified: 2016-04-26 12:39:20 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to "reset" (virDomainReset) a VM on an ESX host returns: "error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainReset"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Compiled against library: libvir 0.9.10
Using library: libvir 0.9.10
Using API: ESX 0.9.10
Running hypervisor: ESX 5.0.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to ESXi host with virsh (esx://root@MYSERVERNAME?no_verify=1
2. Issue reset command 'reset Test01'
error: Failed to reset domain Test01
error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainReset
Domain Test01 reset
Error shows up in both virsh and the Python API bindings.
This also affects library/API 0.9.13
I think your best bet for getting this functionality is to submit patches upstream, and I'm sure people will work with you to get them accepted.
Agreed with dave, tracking this in bugzilla isn't going to generate any results. There's many unimplemented APIs across the drivers. Closing as DEFERRED; someone just needs to provide a patch
