Chapter 16. Post-deployment configuration suggestions

Depending on your requirements, you may want to perform some additional configuration on your newly deployed Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization. This section contains suggested next steps for additional configuration.

Details on these processes are available in Maintaining Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization.

16.1. Configure notifications

See Configuring Event Notifications in the Administration Portal to configure email notifications.

16.2. (Optional)Configure Host Power Management

The Red Hat Virtualization Manager 4.4 is capable of rebooting hosts that have entered a non-operational or non-responsive state, as well as preparing to power off under-utilized hosts to save power. This functionality depends on a properly configured power management device.

See Configuring Host Power Management Settings for further information.

16.3. Configure backup and recovery options

Red Hat recommends configuring at least basic disaster recovery capabilities on all production deployments.

See Configuring backup and recovery options in Maintaining Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization for more information.
