This basically means that virt-manager was unable to successfully connect
to the VNC server which exports the guest framebuffer / console. Since
you say this is with fully virt, it probably means that the qemu-dm process
failed to startup correctly - since VNC itself rarely fails I imagine some
other bit of the guest config broke - network / disk setup being most likely

What are the errors you see - they may well help diagnose the problem
you are encountering ? Also check for /var/log/xen/qemu-dm*.log for
info about the fully-virt device model startup
