Livirt-bin service not creating libvirt-sock in privileged mode


(Chandru1989) #1

I ran container in privileged mode and manually started libvirt-bin service , it show like libvirt daemon is started but and libvirt-sock is not created . If I ran container without privileged mode libvirt-sock is created successfully but KVM module will load only if container run in privileged mode

I dont know what is the issue and why libvirt-daemon is not creating libvirt-sock
