Tested with win7-32 and win2008-64 guest and install qemu-ga-x86/x64.msi with qemu-ga-win-7.3.2-1, the result is pass when setting password with "crypted":false


qemu-ga-win-7.3.2-1(qemu-ga-x86.msi && qemu-ga-x64.msi )

1. boot guest:
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -S -name avocado-vt-vm1 -machine rhel6.6.0 -nodefaults -vga std -m 8G -smp 8 -drive file=/home/win7-32-virtio.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-ide0-0-0,format=qcow2,cache=none -device ide-drive,bus=ide.0,unit=0,drive=drive-ide0-0-0,id=ide0-0-0,bootindex=0 -drive id=drive_virtio,if=none,snapshot=off,aio=native,cache=none,media=cdrom,file=/usr/share/virtio-win2/virtio-win-1.8.0.iso -device ide-drive,id=virtio,drive=drive_virtio -netdev tap,script=/etc/qemu-ifup,downscript=no,id=hostnet0 -device e1000,netdev=hostnet0,id=net0,mac=00:52:0a:5c:f1:1d -vnc :1 -rtc base=localtime,clock=host,driftfix=slew -boot order=cd,menu=on -enable-kvm -monitor stdio -qmp tcp:0:1235,server,nowait -device virtio-serial-pci,id=virtio-serial0,bus=pci.0,addr=0x7 -chardev socket,path=/tmp/qga.sock,server,nowait,id=qga0 -device virtserialport,bus=virtio-serial0.0,chardev=qga0,name=org.qemu.guest_agent.0

2. install vioser driver and install qemu-ga-win msi in guest

3. change the Administrator password with "crypted":false
# echo -n "123456" | base64

# nc -U /tmp/qga.sock
{ "execute": "guest-info" }
