I have the following RAW data added to the VM templates which are used to instantiate KVMs. It would be great to have those settings available in the user interface of template management in Sunstone/ template.

btw: One advantage having serial consoles attached to KVMs is to have a backup access to these KVMs in case direct network access isn't possible.

    <memballoon model="none" />
    <serial type="pty">
        <source path="/dev/pts/5" />
        <target port="0" />
    <console type="pty" tty="/dev/pts/5">
        <source path="/dev/pts/5" />
        <target port="0" />

Probably you already know it, but till this get implemented you can add it to vmm_exec_kvm.conf. Just uncomment the RAW file, it already includes the serial code...
