Hi folks,

i would like to check if i am using PVE correctly here of it this is a bug that someone else has come across.

i have created a set of Guests based on Ubuntu 10.04 x64 Server, and i noticed that clicking on 'SHUTDOWN' button on PVE interface for a given machine is not interepreted by the guest at all.

it is simply ignored.

these guests are KVM running on Debian x64 lenny on the host:
Code:
uname -r
Linux myhost.intra.net 2.6.32-4-pve #1 SMP Mon Sep 20 11:36:51 CEST 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

any idea how to get these guests to understand this command?

i believe this would also stop the host from rebooting. am i right?

thanks,


Nicolas

sorry

i was trying to say that i makes sense for ubuntu not to install acpi packages; as no packages on the server install required it - but on desktop it is necessary.

apologies for the confusion.
after instaling this package everything is working fine.

thanks,

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 desktop and I have acpid installed. When using shutdown from Proxmox, it only brings up the shutdown menu, for a selection: Lock, Suspend, Restart, Shutdown.

Any other ideas?

activate qemu-guest-agent in VM config and install the package inside.

(apt install qemu-guest-agent)

(apt install qemu-guest-agent)

Just in case anyone else wants to know to the full steps:

apt install qemu-guest-agent inside the VM

Then edit the vm.conf and add

agent: 1

Now the commands sent from Proxmox work properly.

yes, but you can also activate the guest agent in the config via the GUI (new).
