hi, I have set up a cumulus vx on my host using the KVM and done the switch settings.
My cumulus VM is powering on and I am able to pass on the commands mentioned in the user guide when I am inside the VM.
Is there a way I can pass the same commands out side of the VM? May be from the host on which the VM is running?

So my question is what is your end goal here? What are you trying to accomplish? There are a couple ways this can be done:

1. By using ssh commands to push a single line into the VM.
   ssh cumulus@vm-ip-address cat /etc/network/interfaces
2. Ansible can be used to do the samething just from the ansible code
3. You can create a Virsh Console
