[SOLVED] CHR VM 6.41.2 & QEMU agent issues on proxmox 5.3

Tue Jan 15, 2019 9:23 am

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...

It's a bit disconcerning that a question as simple as this one does not get a(ny) answer.

Again, does the CHR include qemu or not? In all tests I've made, it seems as though there is no qemu agent running in the CHR VM... Can someone shed some light here?

Answering my own question, 6.41.2 did not support qemu from the looks of it. 6.44 seems to be ok.

What's new in 6.42 (2018-Apr-13 11:03):
*) chr - added "qemu-guest-agent" and "virtio-scsi" driver on KVM installations;


Please upgrade your CHR RouterOS.
