Hi@MD,

The problem can be resolved by setting the user and group in the /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf configuration file as follows.

user = "nova" 
group = "nova" 

And also changing the ownership as follows.

chown -R nova:nova /var/cache/libvirt 
chown -R nova:nova /var/run/libvirt 
chown -R nova:nova /var/lib/libvirt 

Hope this will work.

Thank You
