Description of problem: virt-manager cannot connect to remote hosts presently. I've tried a RHEL5 KVM host and a Fedora 12 KVM host, both report the same error. There are no issues with the connection as virsh can connect to the hypervisor and issue commands. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEL6-Client-20100518 How reproducible: RHEL5.5 and Fedora 12 report errors. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open virt-manager 2. Select File->'Add Connection...' 3. input the details for the host Actual results: Python error: Unable to open connection to hypervisor URI 'qemu+ssh://email@example.com/system': cannot recv data: Resource temporarily unavailable Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py", line 992, in _try_open None], flags) File "/usr/lib64/python2.6/site-packages/libvirt.py", line 111, in openAuth if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed') libvirtError: cannot recv data: Resource temporarily unavailable Maybe you need to install ssh-askpass in order to authenticate. Expected results: connection works. Additional info: ssh-askpass is not available in RHEL6.

SSH askpass looks like it was only added to the RHEL6 repos within the past couple days :) I can see it here: http://qafiler.bos.redhat.com/redhat/nightly/RHEL6.0-20100519.n.1/6/Server/x86_64/os/Packages/ but not here: http://qafiler.bos.redhat.com/redhat/nightly/RHEL6.0-20100514.n.0/6/Server/x86_64/os/Packages/ (strangley http://qafiler.bos.redhat.com/redhat/nightly/latest-RHEL6.0/ points to the old tree). Lack of askpass is the reason you are seeing that error, so closing as WORKSFORME.

Works for me too now. Verified, this is fixed.
