I've done it with little trouble.

Please post the xml of the guest...

You should be able to find something like this in the xml:
<channel type='unix'>
      <source mode='bind' 
      <target type='virtio' name='org.qemu.guest_agent.0' state='connected'/>
      <alias name='channel0'/>
      <address type='virtio-serial' controller='0' bus='0' port='2'/>

If not, please make sure the location for the channel exist and has the correct 
access rights:

address@hidden:~# ls -lh /var/lib/libvirt/qemu/channel
totaal 4,0K
drwxr-xr-x 10 libvirt-qemu kvm 4,0K jul  1 08:57 target
