virt-manager : save password and recursive folders for storage volumes ?
Hi guys,

I have a Ubuntu Server 12.04 running kvm on my home LAN.

I administer it using virt-manager 0.9.1 from a Ubuntu Desktop 12.04

I would like to know :

a) Is it possible to save remote connection password ?
Cause virt-manager ask for password each time I try to access the console of each virtual machines.

b) Is there a way to show files inside subfolders in a storage volume ?
Cause I created a storage volume that points to /mnt/data/iso but it just show files inside /mnt/data/iso and not /mnt/data/iso/windows or /mnt/data/iso/linux
I would prefer not to have to create a storage volume for each folder.

Ok, I wanted to answer my own thread in case it helps somebody else.

a) to use virt-manager without password, you must use ssh-copy-id
procedure here:
And don't forget to add your user to libvirtd group on kvm host. (sudo adduser "username" libvirtd)

b) after consulting members online on irc, it seems that it's necessary to create one storage pool for each directory.
Only workaround seems to install virt-manager on kvm host directly. (not what I wanted so I will transfer my iso files in the storage pool each time I need to install a new OS)

Thank you.
