I have a Debian Squeeze KVM hypervisor running a server guest VM and a Desktop guest OS VM. Is it possible for the Desktop guest to send it's display to monitor directly attatched to the computer?
An answer from another forum suggested using Xen, a second video card and pci.hideback. This setup would have the hypervisor ignore the second videocard, and the guest use it to send the display to a monitor.
Another suggestion was to use VNC locally on the VM desktop and loopback to the Virtual machine console sessions.
I'd like to avoid using VNC as the server itself will be running screen sharing software, and that way may lie madness.
Has anyone got this working? I'm open to other ways of running a server and a desktop OS on the same physical machine, but this way seems the most secure.
