How to forcefully shutdown a guest VM using virsh command on Linux KVM

Posted on in Categories , , , , , , last updated February 26, 2017

I used the command ‘virsh shutdown vm1’ to shut down a guest named vm1 using the virsh command. However, it is still running, and my vm1 is not responding to an ssh session. Is there is a way to forcefully stop or kill a guest VM using the virsh command from host server?
