did you choose optimize for server (vnc) or for desktop (spice)?
andrew - does it make sense to still default to vnc for servers?
Comment 2 Andrew Cathrow 2013-07-18 08:06:50 EDT
We should default to Spice for all.
CPU utilization is actually better for spice than vnc even on run level 3

Comment 4 Omer Frenkel 2013-07-28 08:17:03 EDT
I verified this is a UI issue (didn't check user portal, though):
i can see that vnc is selected by defult on create vm,
regardless to server/desktop selection.
also tested with REST
created vm with the following xml:

and it was created with spice.
Comment 6 Arik 2013-07-28 11:33:56 EDT
When creating a VM the default display type is now taken from the template it is based on for desktops and servers VMs. The problem is that the default display type of the 'Blank' template is set to VNC.

Regarding the check with REST mentioned in comment #4 - we found that there is a bug that causes the default display type of every VM which is created using REST to be set to SPICE (should be fixed by: http://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/17382/).
