Will RHV self-hosted engine be compatible with MSA2040 (HPE shared storage server)?

Latest response

We are planing to use MSA 2040 HPE shared storage server for our self-hosted engine setup. Our self-hosted server uses RHV 4.1 as a host OS.
We would like to know whether this setup supports MSA 2040? or
Do we need to use RHEL as a host OS?


Please refer to https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.1/html/installation_guide/red_hat_virtualization_hosts and https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.1/html/installation_guide/chap-red_hat_enterprise_linux_hosts

Your physical server for the hosted engine need to support the storage server. They (RHVH or RHEL) present the provided storage as a "local" disk to the hosted engine.

Dear Fellow Redhat user,

Has anyone implemented Redhat Ansible for DC and DR setup between two Redhat Virtualization being hosted in two different Datacenters? Basically we are looking to implement Redhat Ansible to automate the DC and DR between two different datacenter having Redhat virtualization implemented with latest Redhat Virtualization software.

Underline SAN storage that we are planning to use is HPE MSA2052 and the HPE DL380 Gen10 Servers.

Please help us with the recommendations that whether we can use the MSA2052 Storage for Active-Active DC and DR? Our requirement is, we would want to use MSA2052 in both datacenter and make both datacenter as active datacenters and fail-over point for each other. MSA2052 has remote replication at volume level and, can we leverage the features to build active-active DC and DR? Is there a Redhat portal that talks about support matrix for DC and DR setup.
