Re: [libvirt-users] virt-manager thru window's remote desktop


Sorry, it's my mistake.
When I changed the login user of the terminal server client to 'root',
I can successfully do the operation of virt-manager of remote KVM host and
I can do any operation of the guests through the terminal server client.

It's a little bit unstable though ;-)

I want to do something like method-1 instead of method-2.

--[Method 1]--
<User Client PC>:
    + Windows PC with Remote Desktop Client   or
    + Linux with Terminal Server Client

<KVM Host>:
    + CentOS or Red Hat Linux
    + Virt Manager
    + Guest OS
    + XRDP (Remote Desktop Server)

instead of

--[Method 2]--
<User Client PC>:
    + Windows PC with VNCviewer   or
    + Linux with VNCviewer

<KVM Host>:
    + CentOS or Red Hat Linux
    + Virt Manager
    + Guest OS
    + VNC Server

Is virt-manager running on the kvm host or guest?

If its the guest you cant connect to local host.  The VM is not aware its a VM so you have to connect to the KVM server using the remote connection URI.  Like this ..

qemu+ssh://user kvmhost tld/

Id recommend looking up setting a normal user to manage KVM so you can use SSH + auth key.
