  2. Install the physical machines that will act as virtualization hosts: Chapter 4, Install Host Physical Machines.
  3. Configure key-based SSH authentication without a password to enable automated configuration of the hosts: Chapter 5, Configure Public Key based SSH Authentication without a password.
  4. Configure Red Hat Gluster Storage on the physical hosts using the Cockpit UI: Chapter 6, Configure Red Hat Gluster Storage for Hosted Engine using the Cockpit UI.
  5. Deploy the Hosted Engine using the Cockpit UI: Chapter 7, Deploy the Hosted Engine using the Cockpit UI.
  6. Configure the Red Hat Gluster Storage nodes using the Red Hat Virtualization management UI: Log in to Red Hat Virtualization Manager to complete configuration.
