Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 533306
libvirt crashes unless run by root with virsh restore / save
Last modified: 2010-03-16 13:25:08 EDT
Description of problem:
In the new Fedora 12 beta, I encountered a problem where the default /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf file that came with the system was not configured correctly. I had to uncomment the lines "user = "root"" and "group = "root"" in order to get everything working correctly. These lines came commented and are commented in previous versions of fedora, but they worked that way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libvirt version 0.7.1, fedora version 12 beta
all the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Virsh restore some VM
2. Virsh save some vm (you will get an error message here)
If you go to /var/log/libvirt/qemu/VM.log, you'll see that the VM had a permission problem.
virsh save fails and libvirtd needs to be restarted.
No permission problem and that the VM properly saves itse.f
I'm new to the bug reporting thing, so my title was not very great. I changed the title to be more descriptive of the actual problem. I hope this helps
