kvm image is not installing

Post by belgeadmin » 2017/04/25 18:18:09

Hello,
Im using CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core) and tried to install kvm today on host but i cant install image :!:

Its locked in starting. Before i start virtual machine in hardware configuration there is always an error "libvirt did not detect any uefi/ovmf firmware image on the host". But i continue to install and Its locked in starting.


After i checked service with "systemctl status libvirtd -l" i see some errors like that: Apr 25 21:07:27 centos71 libvirtd[7130]: Domain id=2 name='centos7.0' uuid=b91fcd85-e463-455c-a95e-a4316217f44d is tainted: high-privileges.

Is there anyone else who see this before?

How did you install libvirt?
How do you create the virtual machine?
How do you manage your machines? (virt-manager maybe?)

I suggest you should

Code: Select all

sudo yum install @Virt* -y
on your system, then start virt-manager and install what you'll need.

i installed like that:

yum install virt-manager libvirt libvirt-phyton phyton-virtinst libvirt-client

Do you think there were some parts missing? i will try as you said. thank you


**edited

i installed as you said but i have same problem again.

After i start virt-manager i load the centos 7 image but its just waiting in the beginning...

Where is this image located ? Is it in "/var/lib/libvirt/images" ? If not - try to temporarily disable selinux to verify that it's causing the issue via

Code: Select all

sentenforce 0
Once you start the machine and everything is ok - then we can confirm that it's selinux.

Regarding the error: "libvirt did not detect any uefi/ovmf firmware image on the host" -Is this machine installed as UEFI (with simulated UEFI Bios) ?What is the setting for "Firmware" in the Overview Pane in Virt-Manager ?
If it is defined as UEFI - you can install the "OVMF" package and try again. Most probably this package is in the supplementary repo (at least RedHat's is), so first enable that repo.

First of all im using ubuntu on my laptop. I installed Vbox and installed Centos 7 into Vbox.

And now im trying to undertstand Centos virtulization so i try to use virt-manager inside Centos 7.

So i just mounted Centos DVD iso to my Vbox Centos 7 and try to install by virt-manager.

Do i have any mentality problem in this order?

Yes, that would be a problem. You have to do "special stuff" to enable nested virtualization.

This is doomed to fail since VirtualBox does not support nested virtualization. See also: https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/4032

BTW: There is little special to "Centos virtulization". KVM is available on Ubuntu, and VirtualBox is available for CentOS as well.

Solaris Zones is not a processor virtualization technique (also called full virtualization or whole-system virtualization), so one cannot compare Zones with KVM. And especially Solaris Zones don't use VT-x.

Actually it was an aswer for your previous reply.

"This is doomed to fail since VirtualBox does not support nested virtualization. See also: "

I know zone is a OS virtulization technique but Oracle use also definition of "nested" for zones.
