I am trying to get virt-manager to connect to a remote host. Is there any
docs for how this is setup. I have been googling for hours and trying
different things without any luck. Any help appreciated.

Thanks and Happy Holidays.

I can connect using virsh fine to a remote. Is virt-manager just broke?

Hi Rick,

Curious to what the problem was.

What we often do is setup SSH RSA keys between Xen hosts, then
configure each virt-manager to always autoconnect to it's local host as
also the others so you can always manage the bunch from each Xen host
individually.

Cheers,
Willem

I finally did the intelligent thing and logged at the messages log and saw
that there was not a passwd database. Once I set that up it was all good. I
had thought it used the system level and was wrong.

Thanks all is working well.
