Thanks Kashyap for replying.QEMU has permissions to the directory which is having images. I will look into the AppArmor issue and find out more about this.Also as per suggestion from the link i have uncommented the user and group from the qemu.conf file - https://github.com/jedi4ever/veewee/issues/996By checking more on the AppArmor and sVirt issue , i have modified the qemu.conf for security_driver="none". The result for this is no permission error but another error which can be related to QEMU 2.3.0virsh # blockcommit vm-01 vda --verbose --pivot --activeBlock Commit: [100 %]error: failed to pivot job for disk vdaerror: internal error: unable to execute QEMU command 'block-job-complete': The active block job for device 'drive-virtio-disk0' cannot be completedSearched more for this type of error and found -Looks like bug in QEMU 2.3.0 . Checking now with QEMU 2.1 for the same.Let me know if anything to more look for.Thanks,Keyur BhaleraoOn Tue, Dec 8, 2015 at 5:18 AM, Kashyap Chamarthy <kchamart redhat com> wrote:On Mon, Dec 07, 2015 at 12:52:34PM -0800, Keyur Bhalerao wrote:

Fairly obvious suggestions, ensure permissions are set so that QEMU has
permissions to the dir that contains images.
Or it could be an AppArmor issue.
Also, check your logs:
