Re: [virt-tools-list] problems creating VMs from remote

Dear list,

I try to manage my kvm environment from one virtual server with
virt-manager. Virt-manager accesses the kvm-hypervisors with ssh.

I discovered one problem creating new virtual servers:

-------
A hypervisor is not running.  For kvm, load the kvm kernel modules.
If you want to run xen, reboot and load the xen kernel.


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/engine.py", line 661, in
show_create
    create = vmmCreate(virtman=True,key=0)
  File
"/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/vminstall/gtk/interface.py",
line 120, in __init__
    raise HypervisorError(HypervisorError.E_NO_HYPERVISOR)
HypervisorError: A hypervisor is not running.  For kvm, load the kvm
kernel modules.  If you want to run xen, reboot and load the xen
kernel.
-------

The error message is correct, as the management-server is a virtual server
and there is no hypervisor running. But as i wanted to create the vm
on the remote server. The vminstall script should check the remote server
and not the local server virt-manager is running on.

Is this a known bug? Is ist fied in recent versions?

I am using SLES 11 which uses old versions, libvirt-python 0.7.6-1.27.5,
virt-manager 0.8.4-1.7.11, virt-utils 1.1.3-1.3.3, libvirt 0.7.6-1.27.5,
virt-viewer 0.2.0-1.5.65, vm-install 0.4.32-0.3.6

It's quite an old version of libvirt, but I don't think that matters.
Is virt-manager using a remote URI?

All other actions (starting, stopping, live migrate and viewing works fine
form the management-server.

 Try doing:

  virsh -c <remote-URI> capabilities


/root# virsh -c "qemu+ssh://root hpb020101/system" capabilities
