[libvirt] Create VMWare ESXi domain via virsh error(error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainCreateXML)



Hi, Dear.
I have two questions ask for help:
my virt-manager and libvirt version is :
linux-vaan:~ # rpm -q libvirt
libvirt-0.8.5-1.2.i586
linux-vaan:~ # uname -a
Linux linux-vaan 2.6.34-12-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-06-29 02:39:08 +0200  i686 i386 GNU/Linux
linux-vaan:~ # rpm -q virt-manager
virt-manager-0.8.5-3.1.i586
linux-vaan:~ # cat /etc/SuSE-release
openSUSE 11.3 (i586)
VERSION = 11.3

virsh # version
Compiled against library: libvir 0.8.5
Using library: libvir 0.8.5
Using API: ESX 0.8.5
Running hypervisor: ESX 4.1.0


question 1 :
When I try to create a vmware esxi domain from virsh like this :
       create --file /work/dom1.x
 there is a  error message :
       error: Failed to create domain from /work/dom1.xml
       error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainCreateXML
it seems dosen't support create esxi domain, but the http://libvirt.org/hvsupport.html show that is supported after ≥ 0.7.0

or create via virt-install

          linux-vaan:~ # virt-install --connect=esx://root 192 168 8 162/?no_verify=1 -n rhel5 -r 512 --vcpus=1  --nodisks bridge=vmk0 --network bridge=vmk0 --pxe

          Enter root's password for 192.168.8.162:

 

          Starting install...

          ERROR    this function is not supported by the connection driver: virDomainCreateXML


how to  fix it ?


dom1.xml
<domain type='vmware'>
  <name>dom1</name>
  <memory>524288</memory>
  <currentMemory>524288</currentMemory>

      <mac address='00:0c:29:51:f1:1c'/>
      <source bridge='VM Network'/>
    </interface>
  </devices>
</domain>
question 2:
vol-clone failed

virsh # vol-clone --pool datastore1 rhel5/rhel5.vmdk rhel5/rhel5_2.vmdk

error: Failed to clone vol from rhel5/rhel5.vmdk

error: this function is not supported by the connection driver: virStorageVolCreateXMLFrom


thanks for help!
