RHEA-2018:1488 - Product Enhancement Advisory
Red Hat Virtualization Manager (ovirt-engine) 4.2 GA
Product Enhancement Advisory
An update is now available for Red Hat Virtualization Manager.
The Red Hat Virtualization Manager is a centralized management platform that allows system administrators to view and manage virtual machines. The Manager provides a comprehensive range of features including search
capabilities, resource management, live migrations, and virtual infrastructure provisioning.
The Manager is a JBoss Application Server application that provides several interfaces through which the virtual environment can be accessed and interacted with, including an Administration Portal, a User Portal, and a Representational State Transfer (REST) Application Programming Interface (API).
A list of bugs fixed in this update is available in the Technical Notes
