libvirt-bin.conf file missing

Asked by Chris Hung on 2017-07-06

So recently I'm working on Opnestack live-migration

And to setup the environment I need to modify these 2 files:
/etc/init/libvirt-bin.conf
/etc/default/libvirt-bin

But with latest libvirt-bin (2.5.0-3ubuntu5.2~cloud0) installed
I couldn't find those files, I tried dpkg -L libvirt-bin and here's the result :
/.
/usr
/usr/share
/usr/share/bug
/usr/share/bug/libvirt-bin
/usr/share/bug/libvirt-bin/presubj
/usr/share/doc
/usr/share/doc/libvirt-bin
/usr/share/doc/libvirt-bin/copyright
/usr/share/doc/libvirt-bin/changelog.Debian.gz

Am I missing something here or those 2 files don't come along with libvirt-bin package ?
Thanks

Try:

sudo updatedb; locate libvirt-bin.conf

The updatedb may take a while if you have a lot of files.

Is there any output?

From one of the files of libvirt-bin in yakkety:

# As of 1.3.3-2, libvirt-bin becomes a virtual package. However, during
# the transition from libvirt-bin->libvirt-daemon-system, we also want to
# rename the libvirt-bin service unit to libvirtd. We have to do the
# rename during the libvirt-bin preinst.

Apparently the instructions that you have (regarding /etc/init/libvirt-bin.conf) are suitable only for libvirt versions < 1.3.3-2 and thus are outdated.
You should verify whether there are new instructions available for newer releases.
