Re: [libvirt-users] Virtual machine in state "in shutdown"

Restarting libvirtd doesn't change the situation.

But looking into the logs I see the following:

- Last lines in /var/log/libvirt/libvirtd.log:

2016-07-05 13:26:42.792+0000: 24552: warning : qemuProcessKill:4419 : Timed out waiting after SIGKILL to process 48301
2016-07-05 13:26:42.792+0000: 24552: error : qemuDomainDestroyFlags:2120 : operation failed: failed to kill qemu process with SIGTERM

- lookup for process 48301:

[root lpextvms003c ~]# ps -ef | grep 48301
root      1114 24243  0 16:02 pts/1    00:00:00 grep 48301
oneadmin 48301     1  4 Apr18 ?        3-08:14:18 [qemu-kvm] <defunct>

The name of the strange VM is one-357
I have seen that the last log in /var/log/libvirt/qemu/one-357.log are dated 2016/04/18.

- Info on process one-357:

[root lpextvms003c ~]# cat /var/run/libvirt/qemu/one-357.xml
OVERWRITTEN AND LOST. Changes to this xml configuration should be made using:
  virsh edit one-357
or other application using the libvirt API.

<domstatus state='shutdown' reason='unknown' pid='48301'>
  <monitor path='/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/one-357.monitor' json='1' type='unix'/>
    <vcpu pid='48319'/>
    <vcpu pid='48320'/>

So the process is defunct, does a 'kill -9 48301' could fix the problem with a restart of libvirtd?

'in shutdown' means QEMU has gone away, and libvirt is cleaning up
any state it has left over. There's little info on it, since you
should almost never seee it - a VM is only in that state for a tiny
fraction of a second normally.

If you have a "in shutdown" state that persists, it is probably a sign
of a bug in libvirt. You could see if libvirtd logged any interesting
error messages. As for cleaning the state, you can probably achieve
that by simply restarting libvirtd - it redetects VM state on startup
