To start the setup you must inform in the Text User Interface (TUI) how to proceed the installation of oVirt Engine virtual machine:
.ISO file, booting as cdrom, so you proceed the installation as normal operational system, later setting oVirt Engine and hosted-engine will connect to it and make all changed needed to configure your environment. The iso will be downloaded via http.
Pre-configured image with oVirt setup, after install required to run: engine-setup --offline --config-append=ovirt-engine-answers
Install the virtual machine booting via PXE.
Below example will be based on ISO (CentOS 6.5).
Step1: Providing .ISO
Step 2: The engine-hosted-engine-setup will start in screen...
Step 3: The engine-hosted-engine-setup will start in screen...
Step 4: Initial setup
For this step, please keep in mind:
- The storage supported at moment for the virtual machine of hosted-engine are:
iscsi, nfs3, nfs4
- Admin portal password and FQDN are required to later hosted-engine connect to oVirt Engine and add the changes.
- The default path that the ISO is uploaded in oVirt Node is:
Step 5: Time to install the Operational System
The virtual machine is started to be installed the OS. Connect to VM via remote-viewer with the temp. password provided in the console and conclude the installation. AFTER the successfully OS installation, press 1 and continue.
$ remote-viewer vnc://IP_ADDRESS:5900
Step 6: Setup oVirt Engine
Connect again into the VM, update the system and setup oVirt Engine, AFTER the engine-setup is complete press 1 and the hosted-engine will finish the setup.
# yum update
# yum localinstall http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/yum-repo/ovirt-release35.rpm
