Rating: moderate
References: #1054986 #1057078 #1078305 #1100558
Affected Products:

An update that has four recommended fixes can now be installed.


This update for virt-manager fixes the following issues:

  • Fix selection of network volumes (bsc#1100558)

  • When using a libvirt storage pool, virt-manager updates the pool information for the VM to use but leaves out the rbd pool host and auth fields from the definition. This causes failures in the VM when a volume from the pool is used. (bsc#1100558)

  • XEN: Domain is already running error occurs when creating new VM from existing disk (bsc#1057078, bsc#1078305)

  • Fix sle15 detection because of changes in osinfo-db (bsc#1054986)
