generate-va error

Postby scoolplace » Mon Sep 11, 2017 11:28 am

Hello,
trying to begin investigating the newest version of mailclener.
We 've being using for some time now the latest stable version.

as the readme file instructs
Use the Provided script "./generate-va.sh" to set __VANAME__ and __VAPATH__

but the following error appears
error: Failed to define domain from ./mailcleaner20170901.xml
error: internal error Unknown controller type 'pci

however the qcow2 file was generated, but i dont know if its usable.

Also, i am using the latest version qcow version 3,
will this would be an issue?

Hello,
The QCOW is valid as this is a simple copy of the provided template.

What platform are you using ? I use virsh to define the XML corresponding to the qcow but maybe you re using a platform where you have to act differently ?

I never notice any problem with any pci line...

Concerning QCOW3, this is an extension of QCOW2 so it your platform is able to read QCOW3 it should be able to read 2 too.

Else try to redownload at worse, something could be broken or better, use the provided md5 to check the sum.
Regards,
Florian

Hello,
So with libvirt and qemu i suppose so you should not meet this problem.
Try to backup the xml, then use and editor to remove the concerned pci line (or all if needed) then relaunch the generate-va.sh.
It should regenerate concerned line if needed.

Florian
