Re: [libvirt] Using Restore in another host.



Hi Marcela,
I was investigating the log file and it seems like the image file cannot
be opened on the remote host.

According to the lost you're doing the restore on the host named
rionegro so not the localhost. This seems like the saved guest image is
not accessible from the rionegro system. Could you please try to connect
to rionegro system using SSH and then connect to the default system
hypervisor using:

# virsh restore <image>

with no specification of remote system to connect to the default
hypervisor (default is qemu:///system under root account).

Also, what may be causing issues is the colon character (':') AFAIK so
try renaming the image from sv-chubut-2011-04-04-17:38 to some other
name without spaces and colon characters, e.g. to
sv-chubut-2011-04-04-17-38 and try to restore this way.

Since according to the code it's about opening file error I guess the
remote system is not having access to the file.
