rhevm installation on RHEL 7?

Latest response

Has anyone any experience installing the rhevm package on a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 system? I've tried, and seems as there are no repo sources available in subscription manager that include the rhevm package (am subscribed with the correct repos except for the equivalent of rhel-6-server-rhevm-3.4-rpms, there is no rhel-7-server-rhevm-3.4-rpms listed in the subscription). I've tested my process identically on 6.5 and it works and installed fine, and the documentation suggests 6.5 upwards is supported.


RHEL 6 is the only supported version available to run RHEV-M at the moment. A future version of RHEV-M will run on RHEL 7. When the documentation mentions "RHEL 6.5 and above", it means RHEL 6.6, RHEL 6.7, etc.

RHEV 3.5 will support RHEL 7 hypervisors, however...

Hi Bryan,
Please suggest me whether RHEL7 supports RHEV-M & RHEV-H(Hypervisor). Since you have mentioned that RHEV 3.5 will support with RHEL7. so does RHEL7 Hypervisors & Rhev 3.5 are released? and are compatible with RHEL7 OS?
Please suggest.....

Ah OK, that clears it up, many thanks! I think what threw me is I struggled to see any notes or documentation that mentioned this.

Thank You. I invested a week time to troubleshoot this on RHEL7. I wish i would have seen this earlier :(

Hi James,
See here: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.5-Beta/html/Installation_Guide/Host_Compatibility_Matrix.html

I agree that the document does not list 7.0 as NOT supported which may cause confusion. - I am therefore opening a bug on this page to indicate your concern. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1158490

Once the 3.5 document has been prepared I will supply a new link.

If there is anything else that you need documented please feel free to let me know

hi Laura,
This bug has been taken care of already:
The table you are pointing to are for Host systems and not the Manager.
