This will be a really quick post about how you can leverage
virt-viewer from MacOS to manage libvirt virtual machines running on Red Hat systems.
In all honesty, this blog doesn't even really need to exist because it's really straight forward. But I am writing a whole series on how users can deploy and manage libvirt systems more easily with Redfish, and this tooling came to mind as a GUI alternative.
You can install both
virt-viewer like this:
(Note: you must have homebrew installed first)
brew tap jeffreywildman/homebrew-virt-manager brew install virt-manager virt-viewer
Once installed, you can run the following to leverage a qemu host over SSH.
virt-manager -c 'qemu+ssh://email@example.com/system?socket =/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock'
