[libvirt] libvirt 0.6.4: Confusing error message during virDomainRestore() if network not started



Howdy, 'yall -- I found myself scratching my head for a few minutes trying to start a VM image via virDomainRestore().

Looking through the header definition in the XML, it read as follows:

    <interface type="network">
      <mac address="00:15:3d:49:ec:0e"/>
      <source network="fvte-MIXED-DEFAULT"/>
      <target dev="vnet3"/>
      <model type="e1000"/>
    </interface>

...and on trying to do a virDomainRestore(), it exited with the following:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/fvte", line 8, in <module>
    load_entry_point('fvte==1.0', 'console_scripts', 'fvte')()

File "/opt/python25/lib/python2.5/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 1224, in restore if ret == -1: raise libvirtError ('virDomainRestore() failed', conn=self) libvirt.libvirtError: internal error Failed to add tap interface 'vnet%d' to bridge 'fvtebr0' : No such device

The actual issue was that the fvte-MIXED-DEFAULT network was not running, and an appropriate "virsh net-start" allowed the domain to restore correctly; detecting this condition and providing a clearer error message would probably be a Good Thing.
