dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id solved this issue for me, probably a dbus bug.

FYI:
same problem here after fresh install, Problem occurred directly after the fresh install.

Hardware: Dell Poweredge 1950, 2 x XEON 5160

Install:
CentOS 6.3 via 'CentOS-6.3-x86_64-bin-DVD1.iso'
Select 'Virtual Host' during the Install-Package Group Selection.

After Install only eth1 activated, one run of 'yum update' and ntfs-3g installed (via EPEL).

One virtual guest created (WinXP fresh install from iso) and some start/stop playing with the new installed guest-OS.

Guest-OS shutdown, Host-OS (CentOS 6.3) reboot, and after the reboot of the Host-OS the descripted error occurred.

libvertd working correct (also able to start the guest-OS via virsh), only the virt-manager (and also virt-viewer) don't work.

The Problem was solved after the command given by demo007 (dbus-uuidgen > /var/lib/dbus/machine-id).

X-Server: Xming running on Windows7, virt-manager started via SSH Connection.


Maybe someone change the 'Product Version' to 6.3 ??

I am using 6.5 and 6.4, depending on the server. Both have the same problem. The "demo007" solution did not work. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Our configuration used xCAT, GPFS, NFS. I do an "ssh -Y" to get to the KVM host so that X can be forwarded. I had been periodically unable to run virt-manager directly, so ran started it via dbus-launch virt-manager. I am, however, able to use virt-viewer, and the problem with running virt-manager is now a solid failure.

I do have a 389-ds server running on a virtual client, and I can forward X from it. I just can't do it from this server.
