Bug Description

`uvt-kvm ssh --insecure <VM>` fails, but I can ssh to the VM using IP address instead.

$ uvt-kvm create ssh-test release=trusty

$ uvt-kvm ssh --insecure ssh-test

How did you obtain the VM's IP address, please? Did "uvt-kvm ip <VM>" work at the time the ssh subcommand failed?

I just got it from my ARP table. "uvt-kvm ip" does not work either.

This is fixed in "uvtool (0~bzr99-0ubuntu1) vivid"
Now you might run into this still if you run Trusty (not having this fix as it doesn't need it for its version of libvirt) but then pull in Ubuntnu Cloud Archive Mitaka (or other newer libvirts.

In that case you will get this issue again.
Since UCA is to support an Openstack setup and not for general use the updated uvtool (universe) is not in there.

Workaround: you can easily get the latest from https://launchpad.net/~uvtool-dev/+archive/ubuntu/master and things work again.
