Re: [Libvir] trouble using ssh tunnel for remote hypervisor

If using SSH, then we simply tunnel to the UNIX socket over SSH so all
you need do is start the libvirtd daemon on the remote host.
Can you rephrase the documentation a little bit then ? It seems to imply
you have to do some additional libvirtd configuration for ssh transport

Suggested change to the documentation attached.

Also, from where does those error and warning come ?
[root acacia ~]# LC_ALL=C virsh -c xen:/// list
libvir: Remote error : No such file or directory
libvir: warning : Failed to find the network: Is the daemon running ?
That is a sign that the libvirtd daemon is notrunning on the host in

Well sometimes, but also it can be a sign that virsh is trying to use the wrong Unix socket, or that the Unix socket has the wrong permissions or is otherwise inaccessible. Try:

/usr/sbin/libvirtd --help

(which should print out all the paths expected by libvirtd) and:

strace virsh -c xen:/// list

which should tell you what socket virsh is trying to connect on.

In any case this warning can be ignored unless you want to manipulate networks.
