Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 998750
guestfish does not work due to conflict of remote and interactive mode
Last modified: 2014-06-17 22:00:56 EDT
Verified with libguestfs-1.22.6-16.el7.x86_64.
# man guestfish
REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT WORK WITH -a ETC. OPTIONS
Options such as -a, --add, -N, --new etc don't interact properly with remote support. They are
processed locally, and not sent through to the remote guestfish. In particular this won't do
what you expect:
guestfish --remote --add disk.img
Don't use these options. Use the equivalent commands instead, eg:
guestfish --remote add-drive disk.img
><fs> add disk.img
Man page is updated
