Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 986049
Host hangs when KVM guest is shut down
Last modified: 2013-07-24 09:03:12 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to shut down a guest OS, either by killing the qemu process, gracefully shutting down the guest, or forcing the guest to shut down via virt-manager's "Force Off" option, the host will hang.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Most of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use virt-manager to create a VM with default settings.
2. Install an OS (I used Windows 7 Pro -- unsure if other guests may behave differently)
3. After the install is complete, power cycle the guest a few times.
After a few power cycles, the host will freeze up. Any subsequent power cycles of the guest will cause the host to hang.
Microsoft sues me for mis-typing the product key.
The behavior of the hang is similar to that described in Bug 983814, however, unlike 983814, it happens with both kvm-intel (Nehalem host CPU) and kvm-amd (A10-4600M host CPU) modules.
This is already fixed with the latest F19 kernel, please update and reboot.
Cole, you might want to note /which/ Kernel it fixed.
