KVM Console Access

So you can always access the console for a VM via Virt-Manager. But if you want to access the console from the hypervisor itself, it's fairly easy.
Using a CentOS 7 VM, you just need to append
console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200to the kernel line in your grub config.
grubby --update-kernel $(grubby --default-kernel) --args="console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200"
Reboot the VM, and type
virsh console <Domain>
You may run into an issue with libvirt telling you the console is already being accessed. Just restart libvirt with
systemctl restart libvirtdand you will be able to pull up the console.

As the output says, to escape the console type
