Hi, Matthias,
Thanks for your reply. 
I look into the example, and I am now having connected to the remote VM ESXi

Thanks a lot for your help.
Best Regards.

Let's just ignore your second try with virsh. The problem with your
first try is that you need to use libvirt.openAuth() instead of
libvirt.open(). openAuth() allows to pass credentials via a callback

There is a Python example in the libvirt codebase that does this, see
