[VR] Red Hat Virtualization on RHEL 8.

Latest response

Hello
So, I wanted to test and experience the beauty of Red Hat Virtualization and followed these steps. I'm running on RHEL 8.
I got 60-days Subscription and attached to my system. I have enabled the repos which is listed on above link guide. But no use. When I try to install the package it throws an error as no package found. My need is actually to control Virtual Machines using RHVM.
Can you please guide me? If I have done something wrong please correct me and guide me.

Thank You.

Hello, RHV currently only runs on RHEL7. You can see the OS requirements here:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_virtualization/4.3/html/planning_and_prerequisites_guide/rhv_requirements#operating-system-requirements_RHV_planning

The move to RHEL8 won't happen for a bit longer, so I would suggest that you stick with RHEL7 for the time being. You can still run RHEL8 virtual machines in your RHV environment though.

Hello Thanks for the info. Like I was trying to install oVirt (Building it) but not successful. So, even for oVirt the same wait time?

For oVirt, I would monitor the oVirt mailing list for further advice:

It might be ready in oVirt 4.4

Great! Thanks.
