Chapter 1. Introduction

This guide covers:
  • Installing and configuring the Red Hat Virtualization Manager.
  • Installing and configuring hosts.
  • Attaching existing FCP storage to your Red Hat Virtualization environment. More storage options can be found in the Administration Guide.

Important

To avoid potential timing or authentication issues, configure the Network Time Protocol (NTP) on the hosts, Manager, and other servers in the environment to synchronize with the same NTP server. See Configuring NTP Using the chrony Suite and Synchronizing the System Clock with a Remote Server in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 System Administrator’s Guide.
