Thread: virtmanager floods /var/log/manages

    Default virtmanager floods /var/log/manages

    I am using opensuse 11.4, libvirtd 0.8.8 and virt-manager 0.8.5

    When ever I start virt-manger the /var/log/messages is filled with the following messages:

    'May 16 12:53:03 vmhost1 libvirtd: 12:53:03.873: 3046: error : virInterfaceDefParseName:126 : XML description for interface has no name is not well formed or invalid'

    A fresh entry appears every second

    Where can I find the XML file with the interface description?

    Any help would be appreciated

    They are generally in /etc/libvirt/qemu for kvm (probably /etc/libvirt/xen for xen). You can also see the current config of a vm with the command:
    Code:
    virsh dumpxml vmname
    where vmname is the guest's name (and assuming the host is your local machine or virsh automatically connects to a remote host).

    Here is the interface section of my vm. I can't find an error. But may I am too blind

    <interface type='bridge'>
    <mac address='52:54:00:be:f6:da'/>
    <source bridge='br0'/>
    <model type='virtio'/>
    <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/>
    </interface>

    The behavior I described above is independent whether there is a vm running or not.
    It starts at the same moment I start virt-manager. It begins before I've established a connection to a particular kvm-host.
    So I would assume that these massages aren't refering to the interface section of the virtual machines. Am I wrong?

    Uuups -- the following of my statements is wrong:

    It starts at the same moment I start virt-manager. It begins before I've established a connection to a particular kvm-host.
    Correct is that the messages are written to /var/log/messages directly after establishing a connection to a kvm-host but independend whether a vm is running or not.

    Do you actually have a bridge set up on the host?

    You might want to have a look at that thread: vm-bridge : convert virtual machines from NAT to bridge or bridge to NAT. And maybe at that other one too: vm-create : create kvm virtual machines ... although I haven't test those two scripts on openSUSE 11.4 hosts yet. I have too but...

    Your vm network interface looks fine as far as I can tell. But you could try to delete it in virt-manager and create another one (you can keep the MAC address or not if it matters).

    Think about making a copy of the xml file (or dump the vm config to file) before changing something - either from virt-manager, virsh or scripts.
