I'd like to make a connection to my remote virtualization server, but Virtual Machine Manager seems to require me to connect as root. Using Ubuntu, I'd like to avoid having to set a root password on the server. This would be inconsistent with my other machines and I find myself in agreement with the policy that Ubuntu has in this area.

How can I connect to my virt server? I put username@server in for the server name and this looked like it was going to work, but it doesn't have proper permissions (can't do sudo?).

I'm so close...
