Virtual Machine Manager RPM installation on RHEL 6.0
 
I installed Virtual Machine on RHEL 6.0 but it failed to start. It gives error as below.

Unable to open a connection to the libvirt management daemon.

Libvirt URL is: qemu:///system

Verify that:
- the 'libvirtd' daemon has been started



Steps:
1) Yum install -y virt*
2) /etc/init.d/libvirtd restart

Ok, did you try to look this error up?? Because if those are the only things you did, it's not surprising it's not working. Did you reboot? Are you running it as root, or a non-privileged user? And what message(s) do you get when you try to start the service??

And, since you're using RHEL6, have you contacted Red Hat support? You are paying for RHEL, right????
