Without this commit, foreign menu will not work when the oVirt VM is behind a firewall.

Comment 15 Christophe Fergeau 2016-01-07 08:58:46 EST
I made the same confusion as usual, 'proxy-url' will be used when accessing the VM through ovirt://
- the ovirt portal can be accessed without a proxy (I'm not sure how to tell libgovirt to use a proxy, maybe it can use the http_proxy environment variable)
- the VM must only be accessible through a proxy
- run remote-viewer ovirt://rhev-portal.example.com/vm-name

expected result: remote-viewer should access the VM named 'vm-name' using the proxy

I can reproduce it.
# rpm -q libgovirt virt-viewer

1. Setup an env and make sure you can connect to ovirt directly but can't connect to vm directly.
2. configure a proxy, make sure you can connect to vm by the proxy.
3. get the ca.crt file from ovirt.
# wget https://ibm-x3250m5-03.qe.lab.eng.nay.redhat.com/ca.crt
4. connect the vm by ovirt.
# remote-viewer --ovirt-ca-file=ca.crt ovirt://ibm-x3250m5-03.qe.lab.eng.nay.redhat.com/$vm

Can see remote-viewer window pops up and "change cd" menu displays but connect to the vm fail.

Updated virt-viewer to version virt-viewer-2.0-12.el6.x86_64 and verified it again.

can see the foreign menu and can connect to the vm successfully.

So move the bug to verified.
