Re: [libvirt-users] error: unable to connect to libvirtd at 'a.b.c.d': Connection refused



Thank you Matthias.

 

I addressed the issues that you mentioned below.

Now i have my libvirt built for esx.

I followed the instructions http://libvirt.org/remote.html#Remote_TLS_CA to generate the CA key/cert and client key/cert.

 

However, the connect still fails, with "error: internal error curl_easy_perform() returned an error: Peer certificate cannot be authenticated with known CA certificates (60)".

 

Trace is below:

BTW, I observed that any modification to the /etc/libvirt/libvirt.conf does not take effect when. Isn't this the default conf file for libvirt/virsh? The changes i am talking about are:

- for default path for the CA key/cert and clinet key/cert

- uncommented #tls_no_verify_certificate = 1

# ls /etc/pki/CA/
cacert.pem  cakey.pem
# ls /etc/pki/libvirt/
clientcert.pem  private
# ls /etc/pki/libvirt/private/
clientkey.pem

Thank you in advance for any comments/suggestions.

Unfortunately network and device enumeration is not implemented yet
for the ESX driver.

ESX support was added in 0.7.0, so your libvirt version is new enough.
For ESX you don't need an libvirtd, neither on the client side nor on
the server side, see http://libvirt.org/drvesx.html#prereq

Are you sure that your libvirt was build with ESX support enabled? If
you're using the Debian/Ubuntu packages that could be your problem,
because they are build without ESX support. So you'll either need to
file a bugreport with Debian/Ubuntu about the excluded ESX support, or
build libvirt from source. If you're already building from source make
sure to install the libcurl development package version 7.18.0 or
newer, otherwise configure will disable ESX support.

Yep, your libvirt is build without ESX support. If it is enabled it
would be probed before the remote driver.

The error message could be more explicit about the missing ESX
support, I'll try to improve this.

See http://libvirt.org/drvesx.html#uri for the URI format understood
by the ESX driver, there is no distinction between /system and
/session as with some other drivers.
