             Summary: vnc_listen not configured in qemu.conf for Ubuntu KVM host

             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Install and Setup, KVM
    Affects Versions: 4.0.0
            Reporter: Kirk Kosinski

and will not be accessible to the Console Proxy VM. I noticed this when using the CloudStack-non-OSS-4.0.0-24

To reproduce:
1. Install Ubuntu 12.04.1 Server, install updates.
2. Install CloudStack agent on host (run with "A" option).
3. Add the host to CloudStack.
4. Launch a VM on the Ubuntu host and try to access the console. The error will be:
Unable to start console session as connection is refused by the machine you are accessing
5. Check "netstat -plnt" on the KVM host to see the VNC session on
