A.4. Installing a VDSM hook

By default, VDSM hooks are not installed. If you need a specific hook, you must install it manually.


  • The host repository must be enabled.
  • You are logged into the host with root permissions.


  1. Get a list of available hooks:

    # dnf list vdsm\*hook\*
  2. Install the desired VDSM hook package on the host:

    # dnf install <vdsm-hook-name>

    For example, to install the vdsm-hook-vhostmd package on the host, enter the following:

    # dnf install vdsm-hook-vhostmd
