The main problem I encounter is the hostname voodoo...but that check can be disabled. I probably make an automatic hostname based on mac address, and send that via SSH to the main box.

A shared certificate is probably an option too, if the hostname is ignored.

Hmm.. I'm not sure what you exactly mean by "hostname voodoo".... Do you mean the checks the ssh client does the first time it connects to an unknown server?

No I mean that the certificate is not valid if the hostname doesn't match. (It is possible to disable that in the connection string though)

All I did was make sure I ssh'd as a 'real' user first.. using whatever hostname I was using for the ssh endpoint.. if that went well (making sure I didn't have to enter a password or ssh key pass-phrase) I was pretty certain the libvirt connection would work.

However.. other messages on this thread are recommending against the ssh method.. I'm going to try the recommended Digest-MD5 method now too
