Opening a Spice or VNC console in RHEV downloads a console.vv file

Updated 2014-05-02T03:20:40+00:00

Issue

  • After upgrading to RHEV 3.2, if I try to open a VNC console on a VM, it downloads a file called "console.vv" and does not pull up the normal VNC dialog to use the console.
  • On RHEV 3.3, connecting to a Spice console tries to download a console.vv file instead. How do I launch Spice?

Environment

  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) 3.2, 3.3
