error: failed to connect to the hypervisor

error: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock': No such file or directory


I am getting this error after a force restart of unRAID. I had to force restart unRAID due to a strange issue where I could not login to the WebUI (i.e. the webui was not coming up on the browser as if it wasn't even on the network). I could not ping my unRAID, and I could not ssh into it. So i had to force restart unRAId. Now after a restart, I noticed this issue of the hypervisor not coming up. Also i noticed that my VM tab is not present in the webUI. Prior to the restart everything was working.

Post your diagnostics

Ok so those are my diagnostics. Additional info I tried a restart as before I forced restarted unRAID due to what I mentioned before but still no cigar. Really concerned if this is a hardware issue and wondering if I need to upgrade any hardware. I don’t know how this file got deleted.

VM's aren't enabled  Where are you seeing that error?

Wondering if what you are saying means something in my motherboard settings flipped to cause virtualization to turn off. This never has happened before.

I’m seeing it on boot in the console like if you have a monitor attached to the server.

You're running the vm backup plugin, but VM's are disabled in Settings - VM.  The message is from the backup plugin.
