I wrote a C program running in a KVM host.
Part of it adds a Unix Channel device in all Guests in order to have a dialog from Host to Guest.
As long as my host wasn’t part of an Ovirt cluster , all was running fine.
I added my host in a ovirt cluster , and then , when running the script creating the channel device ( by using “virsh attach-device --persistent –live …..” ) , I got following error :
Please enter your authentication name:
Please enter your password:
error: failed to connect to the hypervisor
error: no valid connection
error: authentication failed: Failed to step SASL negotiation: -1 (SASL(-1): generic failure: All-whitespace username.)
What’s the user/password I’ve to use then ?
BTW , I’ve seen that following channel device was added to the Guest at its creation :
What’s used for ?
I presume I cannot use for my private purpose ?
I sent this topic to ovirt and libvirt mailing lists , cos I don’t know which forum is the right one for this kind of subject.
Thanks for help.
