I’m having trouble starting, or destroying a domain:
virsh # list --all Id Name State ---------------------------------------------------- 1 pxe running - Centos_6.5_64 shut off - Git Server shut off
I can’t start the domain:
virsh # start Git error: failed to get domain 'Git' error: Domain not found: no domain with matching name 'Git' virsh # start Git Server error: unexpected data 'Server'
Because of this I’m not able to destroy the domain.
How can I assign an ID or otherwise remove this VM?
Because it has a space in it, I’m not able to manage it like I am other domains.
I know that they are not supposed to have spaces, but then again, end users don’t always listen to what they’re told 😛
Thank you for any help you might provide.
Kids, don’t try this at home:
Libvirt should have rejected the creation of a domain with a space in its name, so someone did something strange to create the domain to begin with. To recover from this is going to require some hand-editing of files you aren’t normally supposed to touch manually.
So this is what I would do:
Stop libvirtd (your VMs will continue running).
service libvirtd stop
Find the offending XML file, which should be somewhere in
# ls /etc/libvirt/qemu autostart Centos_6.5_64.xml Git Server.xml networks pxe.xml
Rename the offending file.
# mv /etc/libvirt/qemu/Git Server.xml /etc/libvirt/qemu/Git_Server.xml
Edit the name in the offending file.
# vi /etc/libvirt/qemu/Git_Server.xml <domain type='kvm'> <name>Git_Server</name> ...
service libvirtd start
