9.6. Graphics Devices

The SPICE or VNC graphics protocols can be used to connect to the emulated graphics devices.

You can select a Video Type in the Administration Portal:

  • QXL: Emulates a para-virtualized video card that works best with QXL guest drivers
  • VGA: Emulates a dummy VGA card with Bochs VESA extensions
Note

Virtual machines using VNC and Cirrus, which are imported from environments with a 3.6 compatibility level or earlier, will be converted to VNC and VGA automatically. You can update the graphics protocols and video types in the Administration Portal. See Virtual Machine Console Settings Explained in the Virtual Machine Management Guide for more information.
