I would, you are running red hat servers so you have a support contract with them
right?

As far as I can see this is basic-to-intermediate operating system knowledge, something that can be learned about from reading the documentation, and IMHO not something specific one must call Red Hat for. Next to that you do realize that in an open and constructive environment like LQ answering questions correctly is often preceded by asking the right questions, right? Since here you have put in no effort at all and since I have seen you (and only one other LQ member) redirect fellow LQ members to RH support continuously I ask you to please stop redirecting to RH support where it is not appropriate. I also would like to point out that if your only response to sich questions is to redirect members to RH support that you are free to post no reply and move on to a question you're willing to answer. TIA for understanding.

Basically you should find "Virtual Machine Manager" in the System Tools menu (or run 'virt-manager'), select the virtual machine and then select "Details" to access its configuration settings. IMO there is no need to contact Red Hat support if you know where to find the documentation and take time to read it like Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Virtualization Guide and Managing and Monitoring RHEL 6 based KVM Guest Systems, the virt-manager Wiki machine discovery page and maybe the Virsh Command Reference.

environment running.
