comment Why don't the symbolic links in kvm autostart not work
I think I can see what you're trying to do: You want your database to be up before your application, which depends on the database, comes up. The problem with your solution is that simply starting the VMs in a particular order does not guarantee anything about when the services they provide will actually become available. You could start the db VM well before the app VM, and it could still happen that the database is not yet ready when the application attempts to connect to it. A better solution would be to design the application to wait for the database to become available.

comment Why first rule is not being matched in iptables
The counters in the first rule are not increasing most likely because OP is attempting to connect from 115.x.x.71. The rest of your answer is spot on. +1.

comment How to truncate backup paths in rsnapshot
Perhaps rsnapshot "sanitizes" the source pathname before passing it to rsync, stripping off the extra ./. Check the log file /var/log/rsnapshot.log, it should show you exactly what rsync commands it is issuing.
