Description David Jaša 2014-02-05 16:21:54 UTC
Description of problem:
libgovirt should return error to remote-viewer when VM is not found (instead of empty connection info)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remote-viewer ovirt://

Actual results:
libgovirt says several times:
(remote-viewer:5620): libgovirt-CRITICAL **: ovirt_resource_set_description_from_xml: assertion 'desc_node->content != NULL' failed
followed by single line of virt-viewer:
(remote-viewer:5620): remote-viewer-CRITICAL **: create_ovirt_session: assertion 'vm != NULL' failed

Expected results:
libgovirt reports error to remote-viewer that in turn presents error message to the user

Additional info:
IIUC the code correctly the problem is caused by getting VM info by calling ovirt_resource_set_description_from_xml() in a part of ovirt_resource_init_from_xml_real() function that always returns TRUE and no functions called before these handle NULL values of essential connection parameters

Comment 3 Christophe Fergeau 2016-04-27 15:37:15 UTC
This has been improved by
"Show VM chooser dialog when oVirt VM name is missing" (it shows it when the VM is wrong as well). This commit is part of virt-viewer 2.0, which is what we have in EL7, so I think this bug is already fixed.
I haven't tested the exact combination of rhel7 libgovirt+virt-viewer, just rhel7 virt-viewer, but I'll close this bug for now, we can reopen it if I was wrong and something's still missing on libgovirt side.
