Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-600) When rebooting KVM local storage VM host, libvirt definitions deleted
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 06:42:12 GMT


Marcus Sorensen commented on CLOUDSTACK-600:

Are you sure this isn't just a misunderstanding in how cloudstack works? Nothing regarding
a VM host's libvirt information should be persistent. When a storage pool is needed, cloudstack
defines it. When a VM needs to be started, cloudstack creates the XML definition on the fly
and feeds it to libvirt. So when a KVM host reboots and the network isn't accessible, or you
say no VMs exist, it's no surprise to me, as the management server has to tell the agent which
VMs exist and when to start them.

I presume this is due to CloudStack thinking it's migrating them away from the host, but obviously,
given that we're on local storage, it's unable to do that. The result is that the VMs are
not able to be restarted when the host comes back online.
