Issue/Introduction

The Edge SWG KVM machine is removed from the list of VMs after the host system is rebooted.

Cause

The machine was built using the create Libvirt command.

This creates the VM as a transient domain that only exists until the domain is shut down or when the host system is rebooted.

Resolution

The create command can be issued again to restore the machine from the last known state. Provide the existing Libvirt XML file.

# virsh create sgos.xml

 

To deploy a machine with a persistent domain that survives a reboot, use the define command instead.

# virsh define sgos.xml
