I recently switched from Ubuntu to Manjaro and there seems to be some minor permissions-issue I can’t figure out how to fix. On Ubuntu I used a bash-script to start and stop multiple machines by calling “virsh start MyMachine”. This doesn’t work on Manjaro because it looks like I’m missing some rights to list and start those machines (starting via libvirt-manager works fine as an unprivileged user).
Running “virsh list --all” returns no machines and "virsh start " returns an error: failed to get domain ‘MyMachine’ - both commands work when running with sudo.
I’m already member of the kvm and libvirt group. So any idea what I’m missing here? What additional permissions do I need to set, to use the virsh-command? Or are there any other (scriptable) ways to start my virtual machines without superuser-rights?
