I have a strange situation where my sys-net's software template
"fedora-26-net" (variant of fedora-minimal) does not appear to be
providing updated OS images. My sys-net is the only vm using this
I have a necessary network service installed in the template
"fedora-26-net" /opt/service-name directory, installed from an rpm,
which was working perfectly until I was forced to recover from backup. I
have been trying to get it working as it once was to no avail. Every
time I boot up the networking vm's I now get a sys-net without my
required /opt/service-name directory installed. The template has it, and
sys-net uses that template, but sys-net never seems to get a new copy of
The /opt/service-name directory in sys-net is not even there, and one
sub-directory that is not even in that template anymore *is* there, and
it even starts up that service which I do not want running in sys-net.
Each time I want to connect to the corporate network I now have to kill
one service, reinstall that required service directly in sys-net COW,
just to temporarily create that required service so I can connect. That
modification of course goes away just as soon as sys-net is shut down,
so this gets repeated often.
As another test, I created a brand new user vm (test-fedora-26-net)
based on fedora-26-net and opened a terminal there, and one in the
template itself. The /opt directories were different. The
test-fedora-26-net has a file structure that should never have existed
when it was created.
Any idea how to force this rogue and defiant template to pass along a
new OS image? Apparently doing a "dnf update" in the template itself
isn't enough to kick it into gear and get it to happen. Changing the
source template, and changing it back again does not trigger it either.
Even creating a new vm gets an old copy!
I think I may need to buy a clue. Is this somehow a qvm-feature related
thing? A qubes-rpc not happening? What signaling is supposed to happen
