I'm a bit out of date on the topic, but unless they have changed, avoid the
NUCs. I bought a couple but gave up on them because of a firmware bug (?
limitation, at least) that Intel said it won't fix. It causes a lockup on
boot if a monitor is not connected. I've been told that different models
don't have that problem, but have also heard of other weird problems. The
impression I got is that they were meant for being media servers stuck to
the back of TVs, and other use cases tend to be precluded by unexpected
limitations, bugs and general strange behavior. Perhaps this was fixed, but
I ended up with a bad taste in my mouth.

You can pick up dirt-cheap rackmount kit on Ebay. A few R710s or similar
can be had for a few $hundred and would be absolutely lovely overkill for a
home network. The downside of this approach at home is going to be power
consumption and noise, depending on local energy costs and the nature of
your dwelling. Also, some people may not be that fond of the datacenter
look for home decor.

Unless you live in a cheap energy locale/don't pay for your power/enjoy
malformed space heaters, don't underestimate the cost of running server
kit. Getting rid of rack mount machines and switches and moving everything
to a couple machines built with energy consumption in mind cut my
electricity costs by over half.

Hello,

I am planning to buy home lab hardware to be used by oVirt.

Any recommendations for used hardware i can buy from eBay for example?
Also, have you tried oVirt on Intel NUC or any other SMB servers before?

Hello,

I read in RHV 4.2 Beta release note that CEPH will be supported using iSCSI.
I have tried to check community documentation regarding CEPH support but
there was no luck. Do we have such document?

Hello Martin,

Thank you for your reply.

Sorry for not saying that, but using root password was not working for me,
so I used SSH public key as an alternative way.

I have created bug ID '1529851', but please let me know if you need me tho
check any other steps from my side.

[ovirt-users] oVirt 4.2 ansible 'Add hosts' task doesn't work

2017-12-29 Thread Abdurrahman A. Ibrahim
Hi all,

- Here is a simple architecture for my demo deployment using KVM VMs:
1) rhevm1.ab.lab -> oVirt Engine (CentOS 7.4 x86_64)
2) rhevh1.ab.lab -> oVirt Enterprise Linux Host (CentOS 7.4 x86_64)
3) rhevh2.ab.lab ->  oVirt Enterprise Linux Host (CentOS 7.4 x86_64)

- How to reproduce issue:
1) I installed 'ovirt-engine' successfully.

2) I tried to add 'rhevh1.ab.lab' from 'rhevm1.ab.lab' using SSH public key.

Everything was OK until I had the following error message:
"Host rhevh1 installation failed. Failed to execute Ansible host-deploy
role. Please check logs for more details:
/var/log/ovirt-engine/host-deploy/ovirt-host-deploy-ansible-20171229144439-rhevh1.ab.lab-13b2b5c4.log."

Checking log file showed the following:
[root@rhevm1 tmp]# cat

using 'root' user:

   The authenticity of host '192.168.150.21 ()' can't be established.

4) It seems that above ansible role is not able to deal with SSH
fingerprint for the first time even if I was able to collect
'rhevh1.ab.lab' fingerprint during adding host procedures.
