Here is a fresh test. Hostnames are:

  nicolas-desktop: my desktop
  homer: guest (logged as root)
  xenon: host (logged as root)


nicolas nicolas-desktop> ssh homer.test.lan
root homer> uptime
 10:06:44 up 3 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.10, 0.24, 0.11
root homer> exit

nicolas nicolas-desktop> ssh xenon.test.lan
xenon ~ # virsh managedsave homer
Domain homer state saved by libvirt

xenon ~ # cd /var/lib/libvirt/qemu/save
xenon save # ls -l
total 195M
-rw------- 1 root root 195M Jul 28 10:08 homer.save

<waiting a bit>

xenon save # virsh start homer
Domain homer started

xenon save # ls -l
total 0
xenon save # exit
