Now there is a problem, when the guest specified in ovirt url doesn't exist in rhevm, a dialog will pop up and ask you to select one if rhevm has running guests. And then if you select one and connect to it successfully, remote-viewer will remember the wrong ovirt url.

You can ignore the invalid url or correct the wrong guest name to the guest name you selected.

I prefer to correct it automatically.

This is something to think about, some similar use cases could be:

1) There is no VM specified with the URI. This will also show the VM selection dialog and should we save the URI as specified by the command line or include the selected VM?

2) VM exists but is down, the selection dialog will also be shown, and if user selects different VM?

3) Username is specified in the URI, but user changes it in the dialog asking for the password, which should be saved?

The problem in this bug has been fixed in virt-viewer-5.0-9.el7.x86_64.

For other problems, i filed a new bug to track them.
Bug 1517040 - RFE: improve the logic when saving ovirt url

So move the bug from ON_QA to VERIFIED.
