Virsh console for Windows 10 VM (QEMU-KVM)

tymur999 asked:

I’m trying to access a Windows 10 virtual machine from my Linux host by using virsh console.

But when I do so, I get the empty console that many others have experienced.

virsh console win10
Connected to domain 'win10'
Escape character is ^] (Ctrl + ])

And I can’t type at all. Anyway, is there a configuration that I can do in the VM to allow this, specifically for Windows? Thanks

My answer:


virsh console opens the VM’s serial console, if it has one. If not, as in the case of Windows generally, then nothing happens.

You should be using virt-viewer to view VMs with graphical consoles, or better yet, the well integrated virt-manager.
