Re: [libvirt-users] libvirt logging of virDomainAttachDeviceFlags()


Michel, you're right ; I got this error :

virDomainAttachDeviceFlags( ) error operation forbidden: read only access prevents virDomainAttachDeviceFlags

Either via "virsh attach-device" or via "virDomainAttachDeviceFlags()" , I  encounter an error due to the fact that an authorized user is required.

Script-wise the error is the following :

Please enter your authentication name:
> Please enter your password:
> error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
> error: no valid connection
> error: authentication failed: Failed to step SASL negotiation: -1 
> (SASL(-1): generic failure: All-whitespace username.)

I have now to add a user , following this ovirt people recommendation :

When you attach a compute node to oVirt, it sets up auth with libvirt to prevent admins from connecting to libvirt. 
If you want to override that you need to create yourself a SASL user + password using the saslpasswd2 command

Thx for help.

This looks like the client has not even gotten into RPC call. This means that you are passing a wrong argument somewhere. You can:

1) check here what arguments are being checked for:


2) Use virGetLastError() to check the actual error.
