I don't know if I correctly understand your question.
It is the web admin gui or the portal gui that takes care of using the
correct host ip (that is where the VM is running at that moment) and the
correct port on it to connect to the vnc/spice console.
At host side the qemu-kvm process for a particular VM will have this snip
in its command line (in my case it is a VM with console configured as
. . . -vnc 192.168.50.21:0,password -k en-us -spice
. . .
Take in consideration that if you live migrate this VM, it will seamlessly
change the host ip in the new qemu-kvm process on destination host and also
the port, if the previous one is already taken.
In recent releases of oVirt your spice client window will remain up and the
same both during and after the live migration of the vm, even if the
material host to which it connects changes.
