Hi, Kesick
I encounter a problem when I want to migrate a VM from localhost to the 
the error is
"Unable to migrate guest: unable to set user and group to '110:120' 
on '/var/lib/libvirt/images/vm1.img'.'/var/lib/libvirt/images/vm1.img':No such 
file or directory "

I do not know why. 
I try

1  chmod 777 -R /var/lib/libvirt/images/

2  I can mount the same directory from the local to the remote host directory.

3  I use the system of ubuntu.  change the /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf
   uncomment the 'dynamic_ownership=0'

But all these are not helpful to the error.
Can you help me?
PS: I use the ubuntu server. How can I restart the libvirtd? 
service libvirtd restart doesn't work.

Thanks in advance
