If you can afford it I would definitely do raid. Being able to monitor and replace disks at the raid level is much easier than brick. With raid I’d do a gluster arbiter setup so your aren’t losing too much space. Keep an eye on libgfapi. It’s not default setting due to a few bugs but I’ve been

Sealing the VM is not something specific to oVirt, and is also valid for KVM. Actually sealing the VM is to run virt-sysprep against the VM/disk. You can check http://libguestfs.org/virt-sysprep.1.html and especially the --list-operations which can help you understand what ia being cleaned up.

Hi Jeremy, I found an old blog post where the author seals the VM manually, see here: https://www.linuxtechi.com/create-vm-template-ovirt-environment/ Please, *do not follow this guide* since it seems to be a bit outdated. Nonetheless, it might give you a more specific idea about what sealing the

Hi Jeremy, Can someone tell me what sealing does to a Linux VM? > In short, "sealing is the process of removing all system-specific details from a virtual machine before creating a template based on that virtual machine". In entails actions such as removing SSH host keys, removing MAC address

Thank you for your reply Luca, In general your work flow is helpful and makes sense to me. I meant to say above- "As part of the template creation process ***the Ovirt docs*** say to seal the VM". So I think I understand that you need to use both processes (seal template + cloudinit) to

Hello Jeremy, we did this kind of workflow: - create a standard base image, with all the required updates you want. We usually started from the previous template of the same RHEL release, but you can start from scratch every time if you want. - Install cloud-init that starts at boot and then,
