Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 965740
VM started from Pool with VNC Console configured, starts with SPICE Console instead
Last modified: 2015-09-22 09:09 EDT
Description of problem:
A pool was configured with VNC Console as the console type. When a VM is started from the User Portal (get VM), its console will be configured to SPICE instead of VNC. In the configuraton Dialog VNC is still the configured option and also in User Portal.
Normal start of the VM from the Admin Portal works with VNC as expected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Setup new VM Pool with VNC as Console Option
Setup at least one Prestarted VM or get a VM from User Portal
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup new VM Pool with VNC as Console Option
2. Start a VM from the User Portal
3. Wait for VM to boot
Unable to connect to VM console without SPICE Plugin installed
Console button is Activated, and VNC Credentials Dialog appears when pressed console button.
This appears to be strongly related to ovirt bugzilla 929142
in RHEV 3.1 in general, and User Portal in particular, VNC is not supported, and you can only initiate a spice connection to a vm.
you can open a vnc-console to a vm using vnc-viewer.
