- An SSH username and password that can be used by CloudBolt to log in to the KVM host.
virshcommand available in the SSH user’s environment (after the user logs in, they are able to run

virt-installor other tool of your choice.
To set up the QEMU-KVM Resource Handler:
Go to Admin > Resource Handlers.
Click +Add a new resource handler….
Fill in the required information.
- IP Address: The IP of the KVM host.

virsh list --all to ensure the user account is configured correctly. Refer to the Linux
platform documentation for KVM configuration details.
We recommend using
virt-install to create templates, named name-tmpl.
For example, centos7-tmpl, and configured as required. These can then be
imported using the OS Builds tab in the Resource Handler.
