Special key sequence CTRL-ALT-END no longer works inside VM consoles post RHEV 3.0

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • In past versions of RHEV, including 3.0, it was possible to enter CTRL-ALT-END within a spice console as a way to send CTRL-ALT-DEL, to reboot a Linux guest or bring up the task manager or login window in Windows. This appears to have been removed with RHEV 3.1, why? Will this feature be re-introduced?
