Honestly, trying to get some context on console permissions issues is
very difficult. But given that we merged
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/349541/3 and later with
https://review.openstack.org/454593 and
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/466088/ we are now in a position where
we say "please use dynamic_ownership=1, it should work"

Also, as it was stated by
https://bugs.launchpad.net/nova/+bug/1597644/comments/22 Nova shouldn't
support dynamic_ownership=0.

So, could you please try to modify qemu.conf by changing that option to
1 and see if that fixes your problem ?

Putting the bug as Invalid, but feel free to ping me on IRC and reopen
the bug if you consider that outcome not valid.

Title:
  Virtlogd recreates console.log file as root:root after live migration

Status in OpenStack Compute (nova):
  Invalid

Bug description:
  Hi,

  Description / Steps to reproduce
  ================================

  When instances are launched, they get the following console/serial
  configuration :

      <serial type="pty">
        <log 
file="/var/lib/nova/instances/e53cf7b4-e11a-445f-b4e3-006120e8d800/console.log" 
append="off"/>
        <target type="isa-serial" port="0"/>
      </serial>
      <console type="pty">
        <log 
file="/var/lib/nova/instances/e53cf7b4-e11a-445f-b4e3-006120e8d800/console.log" 
append="off"/>
        <target type="serial" port="0"/>\n
      </console>

  If I look at the permissions for the console.log I see :

  [root@<snip> nova]# ls -l 
/var/lib/nova/instances/e53cf7b4-e11a-445f-b4e3-006120e8d800/console.log
  -rw-------. 1 nova openstack 0 Jan 30 11:09 
/var/lib/nova/instances/e53cf7b4-e11a-445f-b4e3-006120e8d800/console.log
  [root@<snip> nova]#

  If I then live migrate the instance to another host (or complete a
  resize operation), virtlogd deletes the console.log and then recreates
  it as root:root.

  [root@<snip> nova]# ls -l 
/var/lib/nova/instances/e53cf7b4-e11a-445f-b4e3-006120e8d800/console.log
  -rw-------. 1 root root 0 Jan 30 11:14 
/var/lib/nova/instances/e53cf7b4-e11a-445f-b4e3-006120e8d800/console.log
  [root@<snip> nova]#

  This looks to be because when the instance is configured with
  append="off", it ends up setting trunc to True in
  
https://github.com/libvirt/libvirt/blob/93575f345116fe1413f6fe3109227b8be2f416da/src/util/virrotatingfile.c#L260-L265
  and deletes the console log before recreating.  As virtlogd is running
  as root and it doesn't seem to chown anything, it becomes root:root.

  The first migration completes successfully but subsequent ones fail
  due to permissions errors trying to access the console.log.

  If I change virt/libvirt/config.py to set append="on", the log isn't
  recreated (but I know have a problem with an ever growing log file).

  Expected result
  ===============
  Console.log still have nova:openstack ownership

  Actual result
  =============
  Console.log has root:root ownership

  Environment
  ===========
  This is a libvirt + KVM environment on CentOS 7.

  nova - 16.0.3
  libvirt - 3.2.0-14.el7_4.7
  qemu - 2.9.0-16.el7_4.13.1

  In /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf, I have the following configured :
  user = "nova"
  group = "openstack"
  dynamic_ownership = 0

  SElinux is enabled, and if I set it to permissive and make it error
  for that folder, I get records like :
