Description of problem:
Fail to restore guest from the save file while the save file located in the root directory, also
have set the static selinux lable for the guest and set the relabel='no' in the guest's xml

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

1.# getenforce
2.Prepare a normal guest,add the following xml to the guest'xml
<seclabel type='static' model='selinux' relabel='no'>

3.Change the guest image's lable which should be the same with the step2
#chcon system_u:object_r:svirt_image_t:s0:c311,c611 /var/lib/libvirt/images/rhel7.img

# ll -Z /var/lib/libvirt/images/rhel7raw.img
-rw-------. root root system_u:object_r:svirt_image_t:s0:c311,c611 /var/lib/libvirt/images/rhel7.img

4.Start the guest
# virsh start rhel7
Domain rhel7 started

5.Save the guest to the root directory while the guest start completely
# virsh save rhel7

Domain rhel7 saved to

6.Restore the guest, will report the following error
# virsh restore
error: Failed to restore domain from
error: internal error: early end of file from monitor: possible problem:
load of migration failed

7.Check the audit.log info
# ausearch -m avc -ts recent

8.The virsh restore opertion can be operated successfully if i copy the save file in step5 to another directory, such as /tmp
#cp /tmp/
#virsh restore /tmp/
Domain restored from /tmp/

9.The step6 can be operated successfully if i use the default dynamic selinux label

Comment 1 zhenfeng wang 2014-02-18 08:25:29 UTC
I got a little different result while operation the steps in bug 1066280 in rhel6.5.z, the guest can restored, however the guest would stay in paused status after we restored the guest from the save file, moreover it will report error while we resume the guest  


1.Excute step 1~5 in comment0 in rhel6.5.z host

2.Restore the guest, didn't get error , however the guest was stay in paused status and it will report error if i resume it

# virsh restore
Domain restored from /tmp/

# virsh list
 Id    Name                           State
 15    test                           paused

# virsh resume test
error: Failed to resume domain test
error: internal error Unable to append command 'id' string

3.Check the audit log in the host, we didn't find any avc deny info

4.Got the same result with step2 in this comment, evenif i copy the save file to another directory, such as /tmp

5.The step2 in this comment can get expected result if i use the default dynamic selinux label
