Is there a good location for documentation?
It seems difficult to make a new ISO available, or I chose a poor way.
- I downloaded from an FTP site requiring non-anonymous authentication
- I scp'd it to root@host
- I tried to use it from there, but I got permission denied
"KCHISO0008E: The hypervisor doesn't have permission to use this ISO
- the message above recommends copying the file to /var/lib/libvirt,
but I think you actually have to copy it to /var/lib/libvirt/images
- you also need to "chown qemu" the ISO image
Discuss with Royce Lv.
We think the error message misleads you.
You do not need copy file to /var/lib/libvirt/images.
it can in any directory. just set the ISO image permission for qmeu user.
The simply way is just as follow:
$ sudo chmod a+xr /yourpatch/youriso -R
$ sudo chmod a+x /yourpatch/ -R
$ sudo chmod a+r /yourpatch/youriso # "chown qemu" is also OK
$ setfacl -R -m u:qemu:rx /yourpatch/youriso

The above error message does dismiss so quickly.
After the above steps, it finally became visible and usable.
- The above error message appears as a bright pop-over with a nice 'X'
for dismissing, but it automatically disappears so quickly, it's
impossible to read the entire message
- in the "Edit Template" dialog, what is "CPU Number"? I presume that
is "number of (virtual) processors"?
- in the "Edit Template" dialog, what are the units for "Memory"? It
is apparently megabytes, but that should be noted
