Access a virtual machine’s console.

You can access a virtual machines console in a variety of ways. You could use either virsh, virt-manager, virt-viewer, or even ssh.

Lets say you wanted to access the virtual machines console using virsh. You would simply type:

virsh vncdisplay domain_name

You would replace the above domain_name with the name of your actual virtual machine.

To access the console via virt-viewer you could type:

virt-viewer domain_name

To access the console via virt-manager you would need to first connect to the hypervisor and then click on the virtual machine and press open. The access virt-manager you would type:


If you know the ip address for the virtual machine then you could also access the machine using the ssh command as such.

ssh username@virtual-ip-address-here

Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would
really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got
your design. Kudos
