Re: [libvirt] trying to 'destroy' a domain with Python bindings...




When I do this:

   conn.lookupByName('myDomU').destroy()

... I get this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "test.py", line 30, in ?
   print conn.lookupByName('myDomU').destroy()
 File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 238, in destroy
   if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainDestroy() failed', dom=self)
libvirt.libvirtError: virDomainDestroy() failed


What am I missing here? Destroy should do the equivalent of 'Delete' on virt-manager, correct?

  No Destroy means kill a running domain, it's probably not running, hence
the error. Delete means undefining a domain see
  http://libvirt.org/html/libvirt-libvirt.html#virDomainUndefine

domain.undefine() """undefine a domain but does not stop it if it is running """

I think it's available in RHEL 5 update 2.
