You can do virt-manager remotely. Either connect to libvirt remotely
through a locally running instance of virt-manager or via X11 forwarding. I
do the 2nd method with no GUI installed on the server. See here for minimal
http://itscblog.tamu.edu/startup-guide-for-kvm-on-centos-6/ . I do that
from a Mac. My home desktop is Linux so for that i only remote connect to
libvirt with my user ( not root) account using PolicyKit. Instructions for
that also on the link above.
