qemu-kvm: could not open disk image ' ': Permission denied

Submitted by erick on Sat, 08/19/2017 - 19:41

SOLVED: found a way.
Changing /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf to make things work.
Uncomment user/group to work as root.
Then restart libvirtd

 

user = "root"

# The group for QEMU processes run by the system instance. It can be # specified in a similar way to user.

group = "root"

 

sudo service libvirt-bin restart
