Using SL6.4, I am trying to create a new KVM virtual machine using
virt-manager. When defining storage at default pool, it boots up OK. However, when trying to use storage located on external NTFS drive, it fails with permission denied.
I've changed SElinux to permissive mode, defined a directory on the NTFS drive as storage pool; (un)commented the "user" and "group" lines on
/etc/libvirt/qemu.conf file, but none of these helped.
Should something with the NTFS mounting be changed? Maybe some other configuration?
virt-manager succeeded creating .img file on the NTFS partition (but warned me that it doesn't have search permission (??) in that directory), it failed only when trying to start the virtual machine.
Furthermore, if I try to use default storage, and read an ISO file from /home partition - it works; but when I try to use default storage and read an ISO file from NTFS partition it fails with the same failure. (the ISO file is readable from the NTFS partition. I know that because it was copied from there to /home ...)
