Comment 1 Martin Kho 2011-04-13 11:24:00 EDT
Hi, Just tried to start an existing vm. Got the same error message. Martin Kho
Comment 2 Martin Kho 2011-04-13 11:30:03 EDT
Hi, Not sure if it's relevant but cgroup.service failed at boot time: [martin@ps-1866 ~]$ systemctl status cgconfig.service cgconfig.service - LSB: start and stop the WLM configuration Loaded: loaded (/etc/rc.d/init.d/cgconfig) Active: failed since Wed, 13 Apr 2011 13:36:03 +0200; 3h 51min ago CGroup: name=systemd:/system/cgconfig.service Martin Kho
Comment 3 Martin Kho 2011-04-18 07:50:40 EDT
Hi, An update (libguestfs?) solved this issue. Please close this report. Thanks, Martin Kho
Comment 5 Pierguido Lambri 2011-05-19 08:52:00 EDT
Hi, I'm getting again the error: libvirtError: Unable to create cgroup for $VIRTIMAGE: No such file or directory Checking the logs I see: May 19 13:38:30 piernb libvirtd: 13:38:30.440: 1643: error : qemuSetupCgroup:199 : Unable to create cgroup for $VIRTIMAGE: No such file or directory May 19 13:38:30 piernb libvirtd: 13:38:30.452: 1643: error : qemuRemoveCgroup:350 : internal error Unable to find cgroup for $VIRTIMAGE May 19 13:38:30 piernb libvirtd: 13:38:30.452: 1643: warning : qemudShutdownVMDaemon:3115 : Failed to remove cgroup for $VIRTIMAGE I was able to solve it by modifying the configuration in the file /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf: cgroup_controllers = [ ] I'm using the latest F15, with the testing repo enabled.
Comment 6 Andrew McNabb 2011-05-25 15:00:59 EDT
I am also experiencing this error in a fresh install of Fedora 15.
Comment 7 darrell pfeifer 2011-05-25 19:02:46 EDT
Same "unable to create cgroup" problem for me. Using updated rawhide.
Comment 8 Heath Petty 2011-05-26 14:08:46 EDT
I hit this on Fedora 15 GA. I (re)started cgconfig, then restarted libvirtd and I was able to start my VMs again. It looks like cgconfig is crashing. I didn't see an abrt alert, so I didn't catch the crash. -Heath
Comment 9 darrell pfeifer 2011-05-26 22:39:22 EDT
The works with the latest rawhide (so with systemd 28-1)
Comment 10 Justin I. Nevill 2011-05-27 14:10:07 EDT
This would seem to be a dupe of 666130. - Justin

*** Bug 709164 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 12 Niki Guldbrand 2011-05-30 18:43:39 EDT
Restarting cgconfig fixes it here too, it was also in a failed state here.
Comment 13 Ian Pilcher 2011-06-11 16:07:51 EDT
Does anyone know what is actually causing these errors? Perhaps more importantly, does anyone care? Restarting libvirtd is a fairly painful workaround, particularly when one hits the error while creating a new VM (since everything has to be re-entered).
