This procedure covers how to set up a connection to a remote system using virt-manager.
  1. To create a new connection open the File menu and select the Add Connection menu item.
  2. The Add Connection wizard appears. Select the hypervisor. For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, systems select QEMU/KVM. Select Local for the local system or one of the remote connection options and click Connect. This example uses Remote tunnel over SSH, which works on default installations.
