[libvirt-users] Fwd: virt-manager / ssh (publickey)


I will setup for a regular user, but as for connection, as follows :

I opened virt-manager, defined a new connection :

Hypervisor : QEMU/KVM

* Connect to remote host

Method : SSH

Username : root

Hostname :

Generated URI : qemu+ssh://root 192 168 1 201/system

Whats the connection string your using?

Also Id recommend not using root and giving a normal user account full
libvirt control via policykit.  I have an example here,
