libvirt surprise

I just noticed that some of my libvirt VMs had on_crash set to destroy instead of restart. It looks like there is an easy fix:

for vm in $( virsh list --name ) ; do virt-xml "$vm" --edit --events on_crash=restart ; done

I don't know if something changed in virt-manager/virt-install over the years, or if I ran into this a long time ago and forgot about it.

Now I just need to remember to add that --events option to virt-install in the future... 🙂
