qemu-kvm cannot open disk images created in ovirt
Last modified: 2013-09-09 09:42:52 EDT
Description of problem:
After updating libvirt to 0.10.2-23 on rhel 6, I wasn't able to run VMs which were created using ovirt. The error that appeared in qemu log was:
qemu-kvm: -drive file=... :could not open disk image ...:Permission denied.
The disk image was created as usual with user vdsm, group kvm and permissions 660. it worked after changing the disks permissions to 667 so I guess that qemu-kvm was running with wrong user/group.
I downgraded to libvirt 0.10.2-18 and now it works again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create VM using ovirt
2. run the VM on host which is installed with libvirt 0.10.2-23
The VM fails in wait for launch state, because of the error that I mentioned before in the qemu log.
The VM should start.
Fixed in -24.
