Subject Re: can I login to a system vm using virsh?
Date Wed, 28 Sep 2016 10:17:50 GMT

You should ssh on the system vm's IP from the host it is running on, on port 3922 as described
in the wiki [1].

If you still want to use virsh, ssh to the host where the system vm or user vms are running,
you can log in using:

virsh list # confirm that the vm is running on the host

virsh console <name of the vm such as s-1-VM>

If you don't see login prompt, press 'Enter' couple of times and you should see the login
console (Ctrl+] to exit console).

You may use credentials -- username: root, password: password in test environments whereas
on most production systems you may fail to log in as they would have the global setting system.vm.random.password
set to true, which randomizez root user's password on system vms.

If I can get a console through virsh for the 2 system vm's, where can I find a login to use
for network troubleshooting?
