How does RHEV support an IPA directory infrastucture?

Updated -

ISSUE

  • How can IPA be used with RHEV in a supported environment?

ENVIRONMENT

  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.0

RESOLUTION

A default IPA server installation allows for SIMPLE or GSSAPI authentication, but the RHEV client expects GSSAPI authentication. In addition, it is not specific where the IPA server should be located in relation to the RHEV Manager. It may be on the same server as the RHEV Manager, or on a remote server.

For more infomation on installing and configuring an IPA server, please refer to the following document:
