RedHat Virtualization Manager dependencies issues on install

Latest response

Hi,

We are about to evaluate the RedHat virtualisation.

We use a preinstalled RedHat Entreprise Linux 7.6 ( developper ) for testing. This server is also used for our application.

We use the process described here : https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.0/html/installation_guide/chap-installing_red_hat_enterprise_virtualization

On chapter 3.2, on yum install rhvm, we got the following dependencies issues :
Erreur : Paquet : collectd-disk-5.8.0-3.el7.x86_64 (rhel-7-server-rhv-4.2-manager-rpms)

yum can be configured to try to resolve such errors by temporarily enabling
disabled repos and searching for missing dependencies.
To enable this functionality please set 'notify_only=0' in /etc/yum/pluginconf.d/search-disabled-repos.conf

If we passthrougth with the skip-broken option, some package are not well installed and the oVirt engine setup fail due to a SELECT request :

[ ERROR ] Failed to execute stage 'Misc configuration': function getdwhhistorytimekeepingbyvarname(unknown) does not exist
LIGNE 2 : select * from GetDwhHistoryTimekeepingByVarName(

Any ideas ?

I'm not sure about the error, but the docs are for 4.0 not 4.2, maybe the repositories changed. https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.2/html/installation_guide/

Sorry, I gave the wrong link for documentation We use the 4.2 installation guide ( In logs, the repo used is rhel-7-server-rhv-4.2-manager-rpms )

Hello:

This server is also used for our application.

I would strongly recommend that you use a new server for RHVM. There may be some configuration that is breaking the RHV install, or installing RHV might affect some of your other running apps.

For testing, you could use a new KVM guest, or set up a [https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.2/html/self-hosted_engine_guide/](Hosted Engine) environment. This uses a pre-installed RHVM image, bypassing the install issues you are seeing.

That said, check that you have all the required repositories enabled:
