Bug Description

<weshay> [stack@localhost ~]$ virsh -c qemu:///session pool-autostart oooq_pool
<weshay> error: failed to mark pool oooq_pool as autostarted
<weshay> error: internal error: pool has no config file

<weshay> [stack@localhost ~]$ virsh -c qemu:///session pool-list
<weshay> Name State Autostart
<weshay> -------------------------------------------
<weshay> oooq_pool active no

In these cases if one dumps the xml, defines the pool again and then marks the pool as autostart it will work.

[stack@localhost ~]$ virsh -c qemu:///session pool-dumpxml oooq_pool
<pool type='dir'>
  <capacity unit='bytes'>429287014400</capacity>
  <allocation unit='bytes'>157383102464</allocation>
  <available unit='bytes'>271903911936</available>

[stack@localhost ~]$ virsh -c qemu:///session pool-dumpxml oooq_pool > oooq_pool.xml
[stack@localhost ~]$ virsh -c qemu:///session pool-define oooq_pool.xml
Pool oooq_pool defined from oooq_pool.xml

[stack@localhost ~]$ virsh -c qemu:///session pool-autostart oooq_pool
Pool oooq_pool marked as autostarted

This happens when the

{{ ansible_user.HOME }}.config/libvirt/storage

directory has been deleted and the session libvirtd has been killed, but the directory


is still present, so the informations about the active pool are still present, but the static configuration file has been deleted, and cannot be updated to add autostart configuration.

the workaround proposed works, but if we can't stop wiping completely user home, an "easier" workaround would be to just copy /run/user/<user_id>/libvirt/storage/run/pool.xml to
{{ ansible_user.HOME }}.config/libvirt/storage

given we get the user id some common place, because we already need it for other roles...

    ensure the volume pool can be marked autostart in all cases

    In some cases after rerunning the workflow it is possible to
    get into a state where the oooq pool is running but not
    autostarted. In this case the pool_check will pass and pool
    autostart will fail. This should provide the steps required
    for autostart to work in either case.
