And this setting uri_default also doesn't take effect

Well, this one was a different issue than the one being reported above. Therefore, the default URI setting issue is fixed upstream by:

    admin: Fix default uri config option name s/admin_uri_default/uri_default
    
    The original name 'admin_uri_default' was introduced to our code by commit
    dbecb87f. However, at that time we already had a separate config file for
    admin library but the commit mentioned above didn't properly adjust the
    config's option name. The result is that when we're loading the config, we
    check a non-existent config option (there's not much to do with the URIs
    anyway, since we only allow local connection). Additionally, virt-admin's man
    page documents, that the default URI can be altered by setting
    admin_uri_default option. So the fix proposed by this patch leaves the
    libvirt-admin.conf as is and adjusts the naming in the code as well as in the
    virt-admin's man page.

    virconf: Fix config file path construction
    
    Since commit c4bdff19, the path to the configuration file has been constructed
    in the following manner:
     - if no config filename was passed to virConfLoadConfigPath, libvirt.conf was
     used as default
     - otherwise the filename was concatenated with
     "<config_dir>/libvirt/libvirt%s%s.conf" which in admin case resulted in
     "libvirt-libvirt-admin.conf.conf". Obviously, this non-existent config led to
     ignoring  all user settings in libvirt-admin.conf. This patch requires the
     config filename to be always provided as an argument with the concatenation
     being simplified.

Reproduce this bug with libvirt-2.0.0-2.el7.x86_64
Steps to reproduce:
1.Set uri_aliases in libvirt-admin.conf:
# cd /etc/libvirt/
# vim libvirt-admin.conf
uri_aliases = [  "admin=libvirtd:///system",]

2.# systemctl restart libvirtd

3.# virt-admin -c admin
error: Failed to connect to the admin server
error: unsupported configuration: Unsupported URI scheme '<null>'

4.Rename the config file to the wrong filename in argument format "libvirt%s%s.conf", reconnect.
# mv libvirt-admin.conf libvirt-libvirt-admin.conf.conf
# virt-admin -c admin
Welcome to virt-admin, the administrating virtualization interactive terminal.

Type:  'help' for help with commands
       'quit' to quit

virt-admin #


Verify this bug with libvirt-2.0.0-5.el7.x86_64
Steps to verify:
1.Set uri_aliases in libvirt-admin.conf:
# vim /etc/libvirt/libvirt-admin.conf
uri_aliases = [  "admin=libvirtd:///system",]

2.# systemctl restart libvirtd

3.# virt-admin -c admin
Welcome to virt-admin, the administrating virtualization interactive terminal.

Type:  'help' for help with commands
       'quit' to quit

virt-admin #
(Virt-admin connects to libvirtd:///system successfully)

4.If rename the config file to be "libvirt-libvirt-admin.conf.conf",  cannot connect successfully, which is as expected.

Since the results are as expected, mark this bug as verified.
