    Error starting virt-manager on Red Hat 6.3

    Appears there is a bug on Red Hat 6.3 when launching the virt-manager on virtualization host. The error text is below:

    Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [^] for information. (Details –  1: Failed to get connection to session: Failed to connect to socket /tmp/dbus-XaCLCqyiHN: Connection refused)

    You can try to restart the messagebus service to see if this corrects the issue:

    service messagebus restart

    I was able to get around this issue by using the dbus-launch command:

    dbus-launch –exit-with-session virt-manager
