HostSubject needs to be retrieved via RHEV API and included with the other spice-xpi settings to connect in some cases
I have a new RHEV cluster where spice-xpi is refusing to connect. I stuffed the HostSubject in with the other options being sent to the plugin and suddenly it works. I'm not sure why in most cases it works without, and in this one it doesn't, except possibly that this rhev setup is new and completely up to date so it might be a requirement in 3.2 or in one of the latest updates for it.
Anyway, vms have a link to the host they're running on which in turn contain their subject, so it should be possible to pull in via the api

I actually happened across a CloudForms article by complete accident, and it made mention of SSL problems in RHEV 3.1+.
In /usr/share/ovirt-engine/service/engine-service.xml.in the protocol option in the ssl tag can be changed to SSLv3,TLSv1 as another option. I gather in newer installs the default is TLSv1 which differs from older versions.
