Re: Can RHEL7 VM run remote libvirt commands to Fedora36 host?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I've attached output from lsof & systemctl commands.  I enabled virtproxyd.service Friday which got
me past my problem but it is curious how I got into this if the default is for proxy to be enabled.

It is pretty weird that something is listening on the libvirt-sock-ro and not on
libvirt-sock.  Could you run a quick lsof to figure out who's listening on
libvirt-sock?  If it is systemd, then you have socket activation set up for the
read-only socket *only* and you need to also enable libvirtd.socket.  Something
along the lines of:

     systemctl enable --now libvirtd.socket libvirtd-ro.socket
     systemctl stop libvirtd.service

should suffice.

You might also be running in the newer split daemon scenario and you have
virtqemud running instead.  The service listening to libvirt socket might be for
virtproxyd[0] instead and you might need to do the following instead:

     systemctl enable --now virtproxyd.socket virtproxyd-ro.socket
     systemctl stop virtproxyd.service

To make sure try figuring out which systemd service/socket is associated with
the socket, by running `systemctl status libvirtd virtproxyd`.
