We are not able to get SPICE console of vm's in RHV 4.1

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We are unable to get console of vm's. We then have to reboot and migrate them to another host every time. It works for sometime then the same behavior is noticed.
  • We are unable to get console, getting blank screen with message Connected to graphic server
  • Unable to use spice console on Red Hat 7.5 hosts. On any other VM spice console works. One gets only a blank window, as seen in the picture below:
