This all happens in the background, thankfully – every time you direct your browser to a secure site a complex interaction takes place to make sure that your data is safe.

The URI Failed to Connect to the Hypervisor - Fix it now


This article covers methods to resolve hypervisor error. The error message is misleading about the actual cause. This error can be caused by a variety of factors, such as an incorrectly specified URI, or a connection that is not configured.


To fix THE URI FAILED TO CONNECT TO THE HYPERVISOR:

1. Incorrectly specified URI

When specifying qemu://system or qemu://session as a connection URI, virsh attempts to connect to host names system or session respectively. This is because virsh recognizes the text after the second forward slash as the host.

Use three forward slashes to connect to the local host. For example, specifying qemu:///system instructs virsh connect to the system instance of libvirtd on the local host.

When a host name is specified, the QEMU transport defaults to TLS. This results in certificates.


2. Connection is not configured

The URI is correct (for example, qemu[+tls]://server/system) but the certificates are not set up properly on your machine. For information on configuring TLS, see Setting up libvirt for TLS available from the libvirt website.
