libvirt-daemon-driver-storage bug in Centos 7

libvirt

failed to load module libvirt_driver_storage.so

Today I was installing virt-sysprep tool on one of KVM hosts. When this was done I couldn't list VMs anymore using virsh:

[[email protected] ~]# virsh list --all
[454/564]
 Id    Name                           State
 ----------------------------------------------------

Hmm that's not normal obsiously. Checked the libvirtd status:

[[email protected] ~]# service libvirtd status

I confirmed that installing virt-sysprep caused also upgrading libvirtd related packages:

    Dep-Install libvirt-daemon-kvm-1.2.8-16.el7_1.2.x86_64              @updates

So once more I read the problematic log entry:

failed to load module /usr/lib64/libvirt/connection-driver/libvirt_driver_storage.so /usr/lib64/libvirt/connection-driver/libvirt_driver_storage.so: symbol dm_task_get_info_wit
h_deferred_remove, version Base not defined in file libdevmapper.so.1.02 with link time reference

and decided to yum upgrade device-mapper-libs. Afterwards I restarted libvirtd and everything started working perfectly.

This would not happen if I had updated all the libraries, but unfortunately all I wanted was virt-sysprep installed - not update'ing all packages.

Finally filed a bugrequest
