Behavior of multiple Spice monitors is different in RHEV 3.1

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • With the old spice client from RHEV 3.0 (spicec), if a virtual machine was created from a template, if 2 monitors were configured for the new VM, when the user connected to the Spice console, 2 monitors were displayed. With the new virt-viewer, the user always has to enable the 2nd monitor the first time they launch the console. Is this expected behavior?
