lost and found ( for me ? )

install oVirt engine ( open virtualization manager ) on Fedora 16

There are two components required to use oVirt , oVirt engine ( manage oVirt nodes ) and oVirt nodes.

If you’d like to know more details about oVirt , please check the following URLs.

[ oVirt engine ]

install oVirt engine on Fedora16.

oVirt engine OS info
# cat /etc/redhat-release
Fedora release 16 (Verne)

# uname -ri
3.2.7-1.fc16.x86_64 x86_64

install the oVirt repository and then install oVirt engine via yum.
# wget http://www.ovirt.org/releases/stable/fedora/16/ovirt-engine.repo -P /etc/yum.repos.d/

`/etc/yum.repos.d/ovirt-engine.repo' saved [125/125]

overt-engine.repo file will be stored under /etc/yum.repos.d directory.
# cat /etc/yum.repos.d/ovirt-engine.repo

install oVirt engine.
# yum install ovirt-engine -y

set up oVirt engine configuration

run startup script
# engine-setup
Error, Not enough available memory on the Host
(the minimum requirement is 2 GB and the recommended is 4 GB).
Please check log file /var/log/ovirt-engine/engine-setup_2012_02_27_16_01_08.log for more information

nnn , the oVirt engine machine requires 4GB memory at least…

Okay , I’ve added 4GB memory on the oVirt engine machine.

set up.
# engine-setup
Error: current locale (ja_JP.UTF-8) is not supported. supported locales are: en_US.UTF-8,en_US.utf-8,en_US.utf8

oh , error .

change locale from JP to US.
# cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n

reboot the OS
# reboot

confirm the current locale.
# echo $LANG

try again.
# engine-setup

nnn , needs to resolve FQDN for the ovirt engine node.

A shared storage seems to be required for the setup. ( red lines )
However I have not had the shared storage ( NFS , FC or ISCSI ) in my environment .
So I’m not sure whether or not this setup procedure is correct…
# engine-setup

The default storage type you will be using  ['NFS'| 'FC'| 'ISCSI']  [NFS] :
Should the installer configure NFS share on this server to be used as an ISO Domain? ['yes'| 'no']  [yes] : no
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/ovirt-engine/conf/iptables.example
Configure iptables ? ['yes'| 'no']: yes

oVirt Engine will be installed using the following configuration:
http-port:                     8080
https-port:                    8443
host-fqdn:                     FC16-1.localdomain
auth-pass:                     ********
db-pass:                       ********
org-name:                      localdomain
default-dc-type:               NFS
override-iptables:             yes
Proceed with the configuration listed above? (yes|no): yes

    (Please allow oVirt Engine a few moments to start up.....)

Additional information:
* There is less than 4 GB available free memory on the Host.
It is  recommended to have at least 4 GB available memory to run the RHEV Manager.
* SSL Certificate fingerprint:
* SSH Public key fingerprint:
* The firewall has been updated, the old iptables configuration file was saved to /usr/share/ovirt-engine/conf/iptables.backup.193547-02282012_12690
* The installation log file is available at: /var/log/ovirt-engine/engine-setup_2012_02_28_19_33_45.log
* Please use the user "admin" and password specified in order to login into oVirt Engine
* To configure additional users, first configure authentication domains using the 'engine-manage-domains' utility
* To access oVirt Engine please go to the following URL: http://FC16-1.localdomain:8080

click “Administrator Portal” and log in.
user : admin

okay ,,, the next step is preparing an ovirt node and manage it via ovrit engine.
stay tuned for the next post on this :)
