We've recently posted a couple of new RHEV tech briefs in the Knowledge section here on the Portal, so be sure to check them out! And of course, we'd love to hear your thoughts and comments here on the Groups.
Setting up a RHEV-M on a Highly Available Cluster (RHEV 3.0)
This tech brief describes how to configure a RHEV 3.0 Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager (RHEV-M) in a two-node, Red Hat Cluster Suite (RHCS) highly available (HA) cluster.
To make your RHEV-M highly available, you can configure it to run as a service in a HA cluster. RHCS High availability clusters eliminate single points of failure, so if the node on which a service (in this case the RHEV-M) is running should become inoperative, the service can start up again (fail over) to another cluster node without interruption or data loss.
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Offline Installation (RHEV 3.0)
This tech brief describes how to install a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) environment in locations that don't have access to Red Hat Network. It describes how to:
- Download and store all the RPMs needed to install a RHEV-M
- Create a repository from those RPMs that can be used to install a RHEV systems in a location that does not have access to Red Hat Network hosted or a Red Hat Satellite server to get the necessary packages.
- Install and set up the following types of RHEV systems offline: Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager (RHEV-M), Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) host for RHEV, and RHEV guest tools and guest agents.
Use this tech brief along with the attached rhevm-offline-install script to automate the process of creating the offline repository.
