kvm permissions issue

‎03-06-2018 05:22 AM

Hi,

 

I have almost got the vMX installed now. I have loaded the correct module and written a document for the process, but now I have one small issue that hopefully someone has come across and can help with:

 

I have followed the manual for the /dev/kvm directory permissions and now have the following output from "ls -l /dev/kvm

 

crw-rw----+ 1 root libvirtd 10

 

But the error I get at the end of the "sudo ./vmx.sh -lv --install" command is this:

 

error: failed to start domain vcp-vmx1

error: internal error: process exited while connecting to monitor: Could not access KVM kernel module: Permission denied

failed to initialise KVM: Permission denied

 

Any know why this would happen please?

Yet another issue that I did a little test with and for some reason worked:

 

sudo rmmod kvm_intel

sudo rmmod kvm

sudo modprobe kvm

sudo modprobe kvm_intel
