Hmm. Try running virt-manager --debug and seeing what the output is. However I
bet it's because dconf isn't installed. The virt-manager RPM was missing a
dependency on dconf in 0.10.0, we fixed it in fedora but forgot to fix it in
RHEL7.0 (it will be fixed in 7.1)
So just do 'sudo yum install dconf dbus-x11', restart virt-manager, enter the
connections again, and they should stick.
