Cause: Due to loader HV versions, many features were available only for guests with only one display.

Consequence: Guests with 2 displays couldn't be properly defined on QEMU hypervisor and some other features were not properly taking other than the first display into consideration.

Fix: For new enough HV versions (those that support it), the ability to define more display types and all one-display assumptions were fixed in all relevant code.

Result: Domains with multiple displays may now be defined, properly migrated, started and so on (with new enough hypervisor).

Description Michal Skrivanek 2013-06-19 09:27:15 UTC
support configuration of both SPICE and VNC console at the same time. QEMU support is there since 0.10.0 and it's also fixed in upstream libvirt commit 37b415200.
Please backport to 6.5 so the feature can be added to RHEV-M

I'm confused with this bug, can you provide the steps to reproduce the problem please?

Comment 9 Martin Kletzander 2013-07-24 09:21:44 UTC
No it doesn't, going through the code there is something wrong.  I'm moving it to assigned and looking for a reason.

verify with build:

1:config both spice and vnc in one guest at same time and start the guest
#virsh dumpxml $guest
 <graphics type='vnc' port='5900' autoport='yes' listen=''>
      <listen type='address' address=''/>
    <graphics type='spice' port='5901' autoport='yes' listen=''>
      <listen type='address' address=''/>

2: use remote-viewer to connect the guest

#remote-viewer spice://
#remote-viewer vnc://
all can connect the console

3: check qemu cli:
#ps -ef | grep kvm
-vnc -spice port=5901,addr=,disable-ticketing,seamless-migration=on -vga qxl -global qxl-vga.ram_size=67108864 -global qxl-vga.vram_size=67108864
verification passed.
