I've been running a CHR VM version 6.41.2 for some time now. Since I've been having problems with shutting the VM down from the hypervisor, I've been searching for a way to notify the VM.
This could be accomplished if the VM supported the QEMU Agent. According to https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:CHR#KVM, CHR VMs do support this feature. However even though my hypervisor (Proxmox 5.3) does support it as well and I've enabled the "Qemu agent" in the respective VM settings, proxmox still can not connect to the Qemu agent on CHR: from the proxmox gui, it is noted that "Guest Agent is not running".
Should I enable the Qemu agent in the CHR VM in some way?
Do note, that trying to use the command to enable chr.provision-agent (which I don't know what it is for, presumably opening a TCP/IP channel for comms? ) works, but then gives an error when I try to bring the VM up...
