Subject: [DNG] kvm -- virsh failed shutdown -- reason was missing acpid on vm [resolved]

I set up a new kvm machine with beowulf 3.1 and created a simple vm that I plan to use for Wireguard.

The problem I had was with doing:

     "virsh shutdown vmname"

     The immediate response was that it would shutdown the vm....

     However, doing "virsh list --all" still showed the vm as "Running" no matter how long I waited.

It turns out the the vm needed to have the acpid package installed so that the vm could get the shutdown signal.

Kind Regards
