When adding existing kvm machine through Cloudmin web interface cloudming gets some configuration from running kvm process and guesses/produces other configuration entities. Unfortunately guesses for "kvm_monitor" and "kvm_console" (at least these two) configuration variables are inappropriate for kvm machines with lvm backed storage. In such case these variables get the values of: kvm_monitor=/dev/cloudmin_vg/abc_cloudmin__img.monitor kvm_console=/dev/cloudmin_vg/abc_cloudmin__img.console These variables prevent affected machine from starting at boot time from /etc/init.d/cloudmin-kvm. There is no fix available from Cloudmin web interface. Fixing /etc/init.d/cloudmin-kvm doesn't work either, as this file is re-generated every time a new machine is created. The only way to fix it is to find a corresponding configuration in /etc/webmin/servers and to fix it manually there (by setting these variables to "/kvm/abc.cloudmin..monitor").
Adding existing kvm machine with lvm storage results in wrong configuration being produced
