I've got a brand new install of Windows Server 2012 Essentials running on KVM on OpenSuse 12.2. When I VNC in to the VM (using the VNC server provided by KVM, not one installed on the guest OS), it behaves as if the start button is being mashed repeatedly. Specifically, it rapidly switches between the desktop and the Start screen, making the system unusable.
The only entry in the guest's XML file relating to the keyboard at all is
<graphics type='vnc' port='-1' autoport='yes' listen='0.0.0.0' keymap='en-us'>. I have plenty of other Windows Server virtual machines on this hypervisor that do not have this problem, but they're all 2003 and 2008 R2. This is the first 2012 VM I've put on it.
I have tried:
- Using a different VNC client on a different OS to see if maybe I had a stuck key on my VNC client.
- Running virt-manager directly on the hypervisor and connecting to the VM directly.
- Changing the graphics type between vnc and cirrus
Nothing has made any difference. Any idea what could be causing this?
