[Libvir] Error when paravirtualization domain starts with virsh.



With the RHEL5 RC distribution on our IA64 platform (4 CPUs), when we use virsh to start a paravirtuailzation domain, we've got the following:

virsh # list
Id Name                 State
----------------------------------
 0 Domain-0             running

virsh # create hndom2
Failed to get devices for domain hndom2
error: Failed to create domain from hndom2

virsh # list
Id Name                 State
----------------------------------
 0 Domain-0             running
24 Domain-24            paused

In spite of an error message, a domain named Domain-Id is created instead of the hndom2 domain.

The corresponding XML configuration  file is the following:

<domain type="xen">
<name>hndom2</name>
<os>
<type>linux</type>
<kernel>/boot/efi/efi/redhat/vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5xen</kernel>
<root>/dev/hda1</root>
<initrd>/boot/efi/efi/redhat/initrd-2.6.18-8.el5xenU.img</initrd>
<cmdline>console=tty0 nomca 3 ide0=noprobe ide1=noprobe ide2=noprobe ide3=noprobe selinux=0</cmdline>
</os>
<memory>527360</memory>
<currentMemory>393216</currentMemory>
<vcpu>3</vcpu>
<on_poweroff>restart</on_poweroff>
<on_reboot>restart</on_reboot>
<on_crash>restart</on_crash>
<devices>
<disk type="block">
 <driver name="phy"/>
 <source dev="/dev/sda5"/>
 <target dev="/dev/hda1"/>
</disk>
<interface type="bridge">
 <source bridge=""/>
 </interface>
</devices>
</domain>

If the <currentMemory> tag is suppressed from the XML configuration file, all is OK.

This behaviour appears with the libvirt version 0.1.8 released with the RHEL5 RC, and also with the libvirt version 0.1.10.
Are you aware of this problem?
If you want some complementary infos (xend log), we can send it to you.

Michel Gauthier.
