Virt-Manager is unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon
Binary package hint: virt-manager
There is already discussion about this bug in bug number #198957 but it's a bit off the line and it's stated as "Fix released". So when I try to connect remotely to my Xen dom0 host I get this error:
Unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon.
- The 'libvirt-bin' package is installed
- The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started
I've heard that people also have this error when connecting to local xen host but I'm only using virt-manager to manage remote host so haven't tested local domains. I have libvirt-bin installed and running on both hosts. My server is running 64bit Ubuntu 8.04 (Linux inno-xen 2.6.24-16-xen) and xen version 3.2 and my desktop, where I'm using virt-manager, is running 32bit Ubuntu 8.04 (Linux isokisu 2.6.24-16-generic) with virt-manager 0.5.3. Xm list gives me this one on my server:
Name ID Mem VCPUs State Time(s)
Domain-0 0 3888 2 r----- 3338.2
And libvirtd is also running:
root 9336 0.0 0.0 81632 2668 ? S Apr26 0:00 /usr/sbin/libvirtd -d
Here is some more details about the error:
