Re: [libvirt] pool-create/pool-create-as should include build pool then start?



Well, that's my pool xml:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=590335
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=590336
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=590337

Yes, i agree with you, i think we should support option like --build.

What are the contents of dirpool.xml?

I think that it might make sense to add a new option to pool-create[-as]
to additional build the pool; but I think it needs to be an explicit
option rather than the default behavior, so that we don't break
back-compat.  Maybe:

pool-create --build dirpool.xml

being what you would use to build as well as start the directory pool
mentioned in your xml.
