I am trying to connect to a virtual machine using KVM on Scientific Linux 7. Scientific Linux is running on vmware. When I attempt to connect to the virtual machine I get an error. How do I proceed with troubleshooting this issue?

I added a usb controller to the virtual machine in vmware that I was using KVM and the console connected. enter image description here

  • Thank you for this answer. I tried it myself and it was the missing piece. It's not a very common issue as most people probably arent running VMM inside of ESXi but this is the exact solution. – Geruta Jul 21 '16 at 17:02
