# virsh sysinfo
error: failed to get sysinfo
error: unsupported configuration: Host SMBIOS information is not available

# virsh -c qemu:///system sysinfo
error: failed to get sysinfo
error: unsupported configuration: Host SMBIOS information is not available

Following this tutorial to the letter: http://eduardo-lago.blogspot.com/2012/01/how-to-install-kvm-and-libvirt-on.html

Everything else works fine except this command: virsh sysinfo outputs error.

Help!

You could use:

 sudo virsh sysinfo
