Connecting to virtual machines

Connecting to a virtual machine

  1. In the virtual machines pane, click Run in a virtual machine’s card to start that virtual machine.

  2. Click Console to connect to the virtual machine.

  3. You will be asked to download a .vv file.

  4. Open the file with remote-viewer. A console window displays.

    You can now use the virtual machine in the same way you would use a physical desktop.

To allow other users to connect to the VM, make sure you shutdown and restart the virtual machine when you are finished using the console. Alternatively, the administrator can Disable strict user checking to eliminate the need for reboot between users. See Virtual Machine Console Settings Explained in the Virtual Machine Management Guide for more information.
