Details

Can anyone reproduce this? Not sure if packaging error or upstream error


vanilla 4.7.2 kernel
qemu 2.7
libvirt 2.2.0
virt-manager 1.4.0

Since the upgrade from qemu 2.6.1 to 2.7 a few days ago. I'm no longer
able to PXE boot at all. Everything else appears to function normally.
Non PXE booting and everything else is perfect. Obviously have
restarted everying etc. Have tried the various network drivers also.

This occurs on domains created with 2.6.1 or with 2.7

When I choose PXE boot, the machine moves to a paused state (crashed)
immediately after the 'starting PXE rom execution...' message appears.

Reverting to qemu 2.6.1 package corrects the issue.

The qemu.log snippet follows below.

I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this problem to determine if it's a
packaging error by the distribution or a problem with qemu/kvm/kernel?

Qemu 2.7.0-2 command line boots from PXE on both bios mode and efi mode, without qemu helper such as libvirt or virt manager.
Comment by Alif (alive4ever) - Saturday, 17 September 2016, 00:19 GMT
This is the command line to launch qemu to boot from network. The host bridge is qemu0 and the tap interface is vm0, attached to qemu0.

qemu-system-x86_64 -vga std -m 512M -smp cores=1 -enable-kvm -cpu host -drive file=/tmp/disk.img,format=raw,index=0,media=disk,if=virtio -net nic,model=virtio,macaddr=00:aa:bb:cc:dd:ee,vlan=0 -net tap,ifname=vm0,script=no,downscript=no -boot menu=on -boot n

DHCP, DNS, and TFTP server are handled by dnsmasq listening on qemu0 interface. Using built in Qemu ipxe for bios PXEBOOT and aur iPXE for efi PXEBOOT[1]

Comment by Gregory (rollenwiese) - Saturday, 17 September 2016, 00:55 GMT
Thank you for this, I'll have to check it out.

I have a bridge network device setup via systemd (br1). Through virt-manager I've always been able to use my 'br1' device where 'specify shared device' is requested and everything has previously worked fine. Everything actually still does work fine with 2.7, with the exception of a PXE boot.

Comment by Gregory (rollenwiese) - Saturday, 17 September 2016, 02:10 GMT
Alif, the above command (though removing the drive parameter) gives me the same exact failure on 2.7 as through virt-manager/libvirt. (immediate crash on executing PXE rom). It works fine on 2.6.1 however.
Comment by Alif (alive4ever) - Saturday, 17 September 2016, 05:35 GMT
I don't rely on systemd-network on the above bridge and tap configuration. I only use ip link and tuntap to set up the network.

Have you tried using qemu's built in tftp server? I've successfully booted OpenBSD 6.0 pxeboot and bsd.rd using the built in PXE server. No need to setup bridge with qemu's built in tftp server for network boot.

This command serves tftp files on /tmp/tftp

qemu-system-x86_64 -boot n -net nic,model=virtio,vlan=0 -net user,vlan=0,tftp=/tmp/tftp,bootfile=/pxeboot

If this fails for you, you can blame qemu's built in iPXE rom, but it works for me.
Comment by Gregory (rollenwiese) - Saturday, 17 September 2016, 13:17 GMT
Thank you, This does work fine for me, so maybe it's not the qemu iPXE rom.

I just wish I could figure out what changed between 2.6.1 and 2.7 that crashes the machine when iPXE attempts to do anything related to my physical network.

Currently I have my tftp server setup on another Arch metal machine acting as a NAS. Other devices (including virtual machines) are directed to it via
'dhcp-boot=pxelinux.0,nas,192.168.9.103' dnsmasq option on my tomato router.

This has worked perfectly for years until now (It still works for physical hosts).

Perhaps then this is an issue with libvirt/qemu interaction. For me, no matter what the network setup (even NAT, host only) as soon as the boot process gets to PXE rom, the VM crashes immediately. No network activity takes place at all. All I see is this:

Booting from ROM...
iPXE (PCI 00:03.0) starting execution

I guess I have some more digging to do.
Comment by Gregory (rollenwiese) - Saturday, 17 September 2016, 16:32 GMT
sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -boot n -net nic,model=virtio,vlan=0 -net bridge,vlan=0,br=br1 -drive file=/tmp/qc2.img,format=qcow2,index=0,media=disk -m 1024

The above command works perfectly.

As soon as I add -enable-kvm, this triggers the immediate crash mentioned above when attempting the PXE boot.

As long as kvm is not enabled, my normal configuration works fine, but slowly.

The same is true for your command that serves the pxe files from /tmp via tftp protocol. When run with -enable-kvm, I get the immediate crash.
Comment by Alif (alive4ever) - Sunday, 18 September 2016, 05:37 GMT
I suspect qemu 2.7 introduces regression with KVM on Bloomfield processors. You may find the bad commit using git bisect or ask qemu developers to do it.
Comment by Gregory (rollenwiese) - Sunday, 18 September 2016, 14:34 GMT
Alif, many thanks for your help in troubleshooting this. I will follow up with the qemu team.
Comment by Peter Pickford (ppickfor) - Monday, 10 October 2016, 22:24 GMT
Hi,

im having a crash with ipxe netboot on 2.7 with a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 bit not on i7-4710HQ

I did a git bisect on qemu running a command to attempt a pxe boot as a test
good -> boot attempted
bad -> hang
anything else -> skip

Looks like the problems is with the efi-*rom files commit c52125ab9280733b8d265195f6ffe9c76772b0a5 (not sure why these are used for a bios boot though).

ipxe is setup as a git submodule
so I pulled that down
then to get older ipxebuilds to wokr its necessary to fixup parserom.pl and compile with make NO_WERROR=1

All is good for me but this probably breaks the reason for the patch.





Comment by Gregory (rollenwiese) - Thursday, 27 October 2016, 15:35 GMT
It looks like this will be fixed for the next release of qemu.
Upstream bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/qemu/+bug/1623276/

Peter Pickford specifically thanked by the qemu team for the extremely helpful git bisect!
