This is something to think about, some similar use cases could be:

1) There is no VM specified with the URI. This will also show the VM selection dialog and should we save the URI as specified by the command line or include the selected VM?

2) VM exists but is down, the selection dialog will also be shown, and if user selects different VM?

3) Username is specified in the URI, but user changes it in the dialog asking for the password, which should be saved?

Actual results:
