KVM / (ACPI) Shutdown?
I have installed pfSense under KVM and libvirt - works well for my purposes.
The only issue I have is with shutting down pfSense remotely/automatically:
ACPI shutdown (virsh shutdown pfsense) does not yield any result
"ssh firstname.lastname@example.org shutdown -h now" just gives me the pfsense terminal menu, but does not seem to execute the shutdown
Is there any way to get a gentle shutdown working? "virsh destroy pfsense" works, but is not really nice, as it might corrupt things.
I am having (I believe) the same issue. Not using xen, but proxmox (running pfsense with KVM.) I do not have the 'disable acpi' box checked for the VM. Any thoughts?
Actually, I think I was having a different issue. kvm shutdown command totally ignored. This seems to be freebsd-related, not specifically pfsense. More specifically, freebsd is the victim - the bug is in the seabios used by kvm.
So, I guess I live with it until an update/fix. Sorry for the wasted bandwidth.
