Description of problem:
Migrating a kvm based virtual machine with spice configured from a host with Fedora 17 and qemu-kvm-1.0.1-2 to Fedora 18 with qemu-kvm-1.2.2-2 fails with the following error in the log:
qemu: warning: error while loading state for instance 0x0 of device 'ram'
load of migration failed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a VM on fedora 17 with spice as video
2. Migrate to a host with fedora 18
Migration will never complete and fail.
Migration will complete successfully
Please note that this issue has been fixed in qemu 1.3 and a patch has been sent also for RHEL here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=869981
Hi Vinzenz, thanks for the report and link to the commit. I verified that the referenced commit does fix migration from f17 to f18.
However it breaks migration from pre-patch f18 to post-patch f18, which is a common case for people that use libvirt to save VMs on shutdown. I've posted upstream about it:
This is 'fixed' in rawhide, but that patch needs to be adapted to work on F18 as well:
qemu-1.2.2-8.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 18 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing qemu-1.2.2-8.fc18'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
qemu-1.2.2-9.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
qemu-1.2.2-10.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
qemu-1.2.2-10.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
