Description of problem:
encounter "internal error received hangup / error event on socket" problem
,this problem arise when connect libivrtd daemon,but sometimes, the connect call work well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
the libvirtd runing on Red Hat enterprise server 5.5 and the libvirt version is 0.9.0
my test is runing on win7, the lbvirt lib version is 0.8.4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. my simple test is start in win7 system,
2. call the virtConnectAuth to open the libvirtd runing on rhes5.5
3.sometimes the call goes well, sometimes the problem occur
4. the output is "libvir: Remote error : internal error received hangup / error event on socket"
5. i try restart the libvirtd, but no work.
This bugzilla component is only for reporting bugs occurring in the Fedora builds of libvirt, not generic builds on other platforms.
Additionally it appears that the libvirt you are running on RHEL5.5 is the not official version that is supported on RHEL5 (RHEL5 has never had a supported 0.9.x version of libvirt).
I have two recommendations:
1) before anything else, find/build/install newer versions of libvirt on both your client and your server. You can find information about running libvirt on Windows (including where to get *much* newer libvirt binaries) here:
As for RHEL5, if you're using RHEL you should really be using the supported libvirt that you would get with yum update, or alternately getting the latest release (currently 1.0.5) from libvirt.org and building it yourself - either of these is a much better alternative than using the "very old and also not officially supported on RHEL5" libvirt-0.9.0
2) Once you have more up to date binaries, try your test again and if you still encounter problems, rather than opening a Fedora bug report, instead send email to firstname.lastname@example.org (or open a ticket with Red Hat support if you're using the officially supported libvirt version on your RHEL5 system).
