About builds

Before placing new build I try to make minimal install check, i.e.:

  • install engine and vdsm
  • add hosts
  • add NFS storage domain
  • add ISO domain
  • create VM, migrate VM

Installation tips

Adding repo to nodes and management server

  sudo wget http://www.dreyou.org/ovirt/ovirt-dre.repo -P /etc/yum.repos.d/

To install latest oVirt version disable ovirt-dre31, vdsm-dre31 repos (enabled=0) and enable ovirt-dre, vdsm-dre repos (enable=1) in /etc/yum.repos.d/ovirt-dre.repo

Direct links to repositories:

Node preparation

Add epel repositories for gluster (needed by vdsm-gluster) and for python-pthreading (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ).

  yum clean all
  yum makecache

Check that the engine FQDN is resolvable from the node (For example, edit /etc/hosts).

Check that the CentOS version is 6.3, make update if needed.

Install ovirt-engine

Installing Prerequisite Packages

Now you must have java 1.7 to install and use oVirt.

  yum install yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk

Add epel repositories for python-ply, python-kitchen needed by ovirt-engine-cli (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ).

Install ovirt engine

  yum install ovirt-engine

Configure ovirt engine


Now you can enter to engine console and add you nodes to cluster.
