I have recently setup a homelab with a KVM hypervisor: qemu-kvm-1.5.3-105.el7_2.3.x86_64 libvirt-1.2.17-13.el7_2.4.x86_64
I have almost everything working the way I want it (networking/vnc), but there is something that I cannot figure out and seem to be missing. When I reboot a guest from inside the guest (so far only when during an install of a guest), it never actually reboots, but a virsh list --all shows that its powered off.
The guests reboot normally after they have been installed and your logged into the guest OS. It is only during install and the initial reboot that this occurs. It has happened with Ubuntu 14.04, CentOS6/7 and Arch Linux (base ISO, nothing custom).
I am fine with it, but want to know if this is normal, or if there is something inherently setup wrong? I also don't even know where I should be looking. I've really just been digging through the man pages of virt-install and virsh. I am new to KVM, not virtualization. I get the concepts of virtualization, but KVM is such a whole different animal.
