Deploying Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization

Details of my environment is as follows

RHEV-M      :  :
Hypervisor 1: :  (Using RHEV-Hypervisor)
Hypervisor 2: :  (Using Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6)
NFS Storage :


Installing Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager / RHEV-M

Install the required software. In order to install RHEV-M you will need to subscribe your RHEV-M system to the JBOSS EAP and the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager channels.

root@rhevm ~]# yum install -y rhevm


Start the RHEV-M setup process

Below is the output of my installation. You will need to enter an admin password and configure the type of “Default” datacenter/cluster for the installation. Should you chose to do so, you can also create an ISO domain during this installation as well.

[root@rhevm ~]# rhevm-setup
Welcome to RHEV Manager setup utility
HTTP Port  [8080] :
HTTPS Port  [8443] :
Host fully qualified domain name, note that this name should be fully resolvable  [] :
Password for Administrator (admin@internal) :
Confirm password :
Database password (required for secure authentication with the locally created database) :
Confirm password :
Organization Name for the Certificate: Example Inc
The default storage type you will be using  ['NFS'| 'FC'| 'ISCSI']  [NFS] : NFS
Should the installer configure NFS share on this server to be used as an ISO Domain? ['yes'| 'no']  [yes] :
Mount point path: /iso
Display name for the ISO Domain: ISOs
Firewall ports need to be opened.
You can let the installer configure iptables automatically overriding the current configuration. The old configuration will be backed up.
Alternately you can configure the firewall later using an example iptables file found under /usr/share/rhevm/conf/iptables.example
Configure iptables ? ['yes'| 'no']: yes

RHEV Manager will be installed using the following configuration:
http-port:                     8080
https-port:                    8443
auth-pass:                     ********
db-pass:                       ********

default-dc-type:               NFS
nfs-mp:                        /iso
iso-domain-name:               ISOs
override-iptables:             yes
Proceed with the configuration listed above? (yes|no): yes
