I see that vdsm.log is empty. Is it indeed? What's the output of
ls -l /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log*

If it's indeed empty, and is owned by root, that it means that some
process ran by root created it, and later the vdsm user fails to write
to it.

We had several cases like that in the past, some of them failed to be
fully diagnosed. Some relevant links:


A trivial workaround is:
chown vdsm:kvm /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log

If you can come up with any idea about how this happened (e.g. if you
can correlate the timestamp of the file with something else that happened
on the system, etc.), we'd love to hear about it. Adding some vdsm people.
