Ubuntu: KVM / QEMU / VMM : local host not connected



Question:

I am using Ubuntu 14.04. I have installed kvm. When I try to open virtual machine, I get this error:

local host not connected    Unable to connect to libvirt.    Verify that:   - The 'libvirt-bin' package is installed   - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started   - You are member of the 'libvirtd' group    Unable to connect to libvirt.    Verify that:   - The 'libvirt-bin' package is installed   - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started   - You are member of the 'libvirtd' group    Libvirt URI is: qemu:///system    Traceback (most recent call last):    File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py", line 1027, in _open_thread      self.vmm = self._try_open()    File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py", line 1009, in _try_open      flags)    File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/libvirt.py", line 105, in openAuth      if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed')  libvirtError: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock': Permission denied  


Solution:1

Step 1 : Install all packages that are needed.

sudo apt-get install qemu virt-manager    

If they already are installed, you get notified.

Step 2 : Add yourself to the libvirtd group.

sudo usermod -G libvirtd -a <username>    

Replace <username> with your user name.

Step 3 : Reboot your host operating system.

sudo reboot  

Now everything should work as expected.

In case you still get the same error again -

open virt-manager with root privileges :

sudo apt-get install gksu      gksudo virt-manager    

Close virt-manager and restart the host.

sudo reboot    

Finally it should work with user privileges !
