Providing RHEV-H upgrades via RHEV-M

Latest response

Just wondering how folks are providing the latest versions of RHEV-H to RHEV-M.

There appear to be two options:

  1. Download and install RPM by hand (https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.1/html/Hypervisor_Deployment_Guide/chap-Deployment_Guide-Upgrading_Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization_Hypervisors.html#sect-Deployment_Guide-Upgrading_Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization_Hypervisors-Upgrading_a_RHEV_Hypervisor_with_a_RHEV_Manager)
  2. Subscribe RHEV-M host to rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhevh (Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor (v.6 x86_64))

Both provide the rhev-hypervisor6.noarch package and the latest updated versions.

I've used both, I'm leaning towards option 2 to make sure that I'm getting updates in a timely fashion instead of watching a package.

What are other people doing?

My RHEV-M host gets the rhev-hypervisor6.noarch updates from the rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhevh channel.

Same here. This way the ISO is immediatly available after updating for reinstalling the host.
