Description of problem:

When I create an HVM XEN guest with libvirt (virsh, virt-install) the resulting domain does not honor the VNC configuration settings in the domain XML config.  Rather, the domain comes up listening to

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Here are the relevant snippets from my domain config:

<domain type='xen' id='8'>
  <memory unit='KiB'>2097152</memory>
  <currentMemory unit='KiB'>2097152</currentMemory>
  <vcpu placement='static'>1</vcpu>
    <type arch='x86_64' machine='xenfv'>hvm</type>
    <boot dev='hd'/>
    <boot dev='cdrom'/>
    <input type='tablet' bus='usb'/>
    <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/>
    <graphics type='vnc' port='5905' autoport='no' listen=''>
      <listen type='address' address=''/>
      <model type='cirrus' vram='9216' heads='1'/>
    <memballoon model='xen'/>

When the domain starts, it listens for VNC on localhost:5900, which would imply that the VNC descriptor ignored, instead perceived as

    <graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' listen=''>
      <listen type='address' address=''/>

Note that 'virsh domxml-to-native' when run on this domain's XML description yields

vnc = 1
vncunused = 0
vncdisplay = 5
vnclisten = ""

Looks like you are using a virt-preview libvirt version on F18. That version isn't available or supported anymore. Please try updating to F19+ and seeing if this issue still reproduces, either with stock packages or fedora-virt-preview, and if so reopen this bug
