virt-manager and autoconnect

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

virt-manager on SL7 is configured unhelpfully for DICE. As soon as it's started an error appears:

(Alternatively this error might appear followed by this one).

There are two problems here.
Firstly the default connection has its autoconnect setting set to On. To get rid of the error messages, set autoconnect to Off by doing this:

  1. Dismiss any error messages.
  2. Right-click on the "localhost" connection and select "Details":
  3. Untick "Autoconnect":
  4. Close the window.

The second problem is that the connections you may have saved in virt-manager on SL6 will not appear, because the SL7 version stores its configuration in a different place, ignoring the "old" configuration entirely. To have personal saved connections in virt-manager it will be necessary to save them afresh in the SL7 version.
