Can RHVM be installed to a VM and sit on one of the RHEV hypervisors?

Responses

Yes, this is possible if you set up a self-hosted engine: Self-Hosted Engine Guide

The installation process is quite different from a standalone RHVM installation, so I recommend careful planning.

This is not good design, just look what procedures you'll face if you try to upgrade to next version after some time. https://access.redhat.com/labs/rhvupgradehelper/

I am using the Self Hosted Engine for RHVM and it works perfectly . If any of the hypervisor is down it automatically switches to next availble hosted engine Hypervisor .

Nice, I didn't know that. Thanks

Non related, but can Virtualization Manager run on bare metal on a separate device or does it need to be on the same as the RHV

Hi Jonathan, yes it can but you don't get the benefits of running RHV-M as a highly available instance. Installation docs can be found here.
