Comment 4 CongDong 2014-10-09 02:17:04 UTC
I can reproduce with virt-viewer-0.6.0-6.el7

VERIFY with virt-viewer-0.6.0-7.el7.x86_64:

1. man virt-viewer
       A small number of configuration options can be controlled by editing the settings file located in the user
       configuration directory:


       This file is a text file in INI format, with application options in the [virt-viewer] group and per-guest options
       in a group identified by the guest's UUID. The application options should not be edited manually. There is also a
       special [fallback] group which specifies options for all guests that don't have an explicit group.

       For each guest, the initial fullscreen monitor configuration can be specified by using the monitor-mapping key.
       This configuration only takes effect when the -f/--full-screen option is specified.

       The value of this key is a list of mappings between a guest display and a client monitor. Each mapping is separated
       by a semicolon character, and the mappings have the format <GUEST-DISPLAY-ID>:<CLIENT-MONITOR-ID>.

       For example, to map guest displays 1 and 2 to client monitors 2 and 3 for the guest with a UUID of
       e4591275-d9d3-4a44-a18b-ef2fbc8ac3e2, use:


Can get the description for monitor-mapping function.

2. man remote-viewer
       To connect to a virtual machine named "toliara" on an oVirt server at example.org

          remote-viewer ovirt://[username@]example.org/toliara

Have an example of ovirt connection.

As the result, set VERIFIED.
