Check ovirt-engine service is running. Please provide more information on the error.

Hi Sam,

Thanks for your reply.

It was a fresh installation for Both a RHEL OS, then i have followed the steps to install RHEV-M, and it was successful.

But when i am trying to login. i got the mentioned problem above.

I think the problem from a hostname, becoz I have changed it after install RHEL.


Did you also update the hostname in ovirt-engine?

Take a look at this article. Renaming the Manager with the Ovirt Engine Rename Tool

echo 'SSO_ALTERNATE_ENGINE_FQDNS = ""' > /etc/ovirt-engine/engine.conf.d/99-alternate-engine-fqdns.conf && systemctl restart ovirt-engine
