I am currently running LibVirt with Qemu on Debian Wheezy:
- libvirtd (libvirt) 1.2.4
- qemu-x86_64 version 2.0.0 (Debian 2.0.0+dfsg-4~bpo70+1), Copyright (c) 2003-2008 Fabrice Bellard
It's all working perfectly, including ACPI: virsh shutdown guest. However when I issue "halt" from the guest, the guest stops but libvirt thinks it is still running: (virsh list outputs state: running). virsh dominfo does the same thing: State: running
I believe this is due to the -no-shutdown flag passed to qemu, making it stop the CPUs rather than halt entirely. Is this however a bug that the status is not updated correctly?
