Re: Unit libvirtd.service could not be found. on VM

I discovered I had wrong permissions for /var/lib/libvirt/qemu/, after setting them to drwxr-x--x. qemu qemu and executing daemon-reload libvirtd.service exists now on my vms :)
However - I'm not able to get it to run. In the journal I see the message libvirtd[6800]: Unable to import CA certificate list /etc/pki/vdsm/certs/cacert.pem
I have verified its permissions and that it's not empty.
I also executed update-ca-trust, but still not able to start the service, any suggestions on this one?

That sounds like a kickstart/distro problem. Libvirt itself does not
guarantee it is installed by default on a distribution. Either you need
to specify the correct group to install, or install packages yourself
after the installation is done. Configuring what SW is installed inside
guest is out of libvirt's scope, sorry.
