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:
<source mode='bind' path='/var/lib/libvirt/qemu/channel/target/domain-PCVIRTdra/org.qemu.guest_agent.0'/>
<target type='virtio' name='org.qemu.guest_agent.0' state='connected'/>
<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
drwxr-xr-x 10 libvirt-qemu kvm 4,0K jul 1 08:57 target
