virt-manager cannot connect to remote hosts [nightly 20100518]
Last modified: 2010-05-19 22:00:11 EDT
Description of problem:
virt-manager cannot connect to remote hosts presently. I've tried a RHEL5 KVM host and a Fedora 12 KVM host, both report the same error. There are no issues with the connection as virsh can connect to the hypervisor and issue commands.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5.5 and Fedora 12 report errors.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open virt-manager
2. Select File->'Add Connection...'
3. input the details for the host
Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu+ssh://email@example.com/system':
cannot recv data: Resource temporarily unavailable
Traceback (most recent call last):

libvirtError: cannot recv data: Resource temporarily unavailable
Maybe you need to install ssh-askpass in order to authenticate.
ssh-askpass is not available in RHEL6.
SSH askpass looks like it was only added to the RHEL6 repos within the past couple days :)
I can see it here:
but not here:
(strangley http://qafiler.bos.redhat.com/redhat/nightly/latest-RHEL6.0/ points to the old tree).
Lack of askpass is the reason you are seeing that error, so closing as WORKSFORME.
Works for me too now. Verified, this is fixed.
