Why can't I connect to a remote URI?
When connecting to remote URIs, you probably need to override the
libvirt socket location, see www.jedi.be.
virt-manager -c 'qemu+ssh://user@libvirthost/system?socket=/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock' virt-viewer -c 'qemu+ssh://user@libvirthost/system?socket=/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock'
I still can't connect to a remote URI, why?
This formula for
virt-manager does not include the
openssh-askpass dependency and does not prompt for passwords in a popup window. Here are two workarounds:
virt-managerwith either the
--no-forkoption to get password prompt via the CLI.
Set up SSH keys between your local and remote system to avoid the prompt.
Why can't I connect to a local URI (e.g., qemu:///system)?
I've not yet tested
virt-manager against any local URIs/hypervisors. If you get
virt-manager working with a local hypervisor and needed to take any special steps, feel free to share the details.
Everything was working yesterday, but it's not working today, can you help?
virt-manager or its dependencies have been upgraded recently (
brew upgrade), it's possible that a reinstall may fix the issue (see #39).
