    virt-install errors when running as regular user


    I need some help and guidance from you regarding this virt-install issue I am seeing.

    OS : SuseEnterpriseLinuxServer (SLES) 12 Service Pack 1
    virt-install version on the box
    virtual@SLES12-bare:~> virt-install --version
    libvirt version : libvirt-1.3.4-565.1.x86_64
    What I tried:

    I tried to start virt-install as regular user and I am seeing errors listed below.

    If I start the same with sudo it works (the user virtual shown here is a sudo enabled user)

    I really want to start the virt-install as a regular user.

    Please help.


    virtual@SLES12-bare:~> virt-install --connect qemu:///session -n SLES12_SP1 --memory 4096 --vcpus 2 --cdrom /data/ADP_x86_64_SLES12SP1.x86_64-12.1.6.preload.iso --graphics spice --disk /data/kvm_images/SLES12_SP1.img
    WARNING Graphics requested but DISPLAY is not set. Not running virt-viewer.
    WARNING No console to launch for the guest, defaulting to --wait -1

    Starting install...
    ERROR Failed to connect socket to '/run/user/500/libvirt/virtlogd-sock': No such file or directory
    Domain installation does not appear to have been successful.
    If it was, you can restart your domain by running:
    virsh --connect qemu:///session start SLES12_SP1
    otherwise, please restart your installation.

    Thank You for your time and attention.
