DEBUG (libvirtobject:179) Error initializing libvirt state for <vmmDomain name=server_staging ...>
NameError: name 'dom' is not defined
Wonderful! An error I have no idea about, with zero search results as a bonus
(also the error won't show up if you run without --debug, nice!)
For anyone else having this issue, apply this patch to libvirt-python.
Seems to work at first glance, hope nothing falls over
Personal server. Totally overkill but ok.
