Looks like I am talking to myself now, but I will post my latest findings, as I have had some time today to poke at this a bit. It seems that the issues I last posted about may be specific to whn using the Windows Remote-Viewer client, as that is what I was testing with yesterday (and when

Just got a chance to get back to this. Looks like I cannot connect using SPICE at all, even from the internal network. I could connect fine (from internal network) before the attempted proxy changes :-( When I try to connect using SPICE, the black console windows pops ups, and just says

From what I have experienced so far (which, admittedly, is only in a testing environment), stable release of oVirt seems to be fine. The only SRPM I have had to re-compile is qemu-kvm (CentOS 6.5); I just set rhev=1 so I could get live snapshot working, until there is a qemu-kvm version for

Hi Andrew, Thanks for the reply. Quoting Andrew Lau and...@andrewklau.com: Just install squid proxy and port forward the 3128 port through your firewall you should be all good. Is squid installed on your oVirt box or is it on your firewall? Or did ypu srtup a seperate box ad the proxy?

I followed your notes, installing Squid on my oVirt server (I have an all-in-one installation). I set a port forward on our firewall for port 3128 to my oVirt server. I logged into the User Portal and tried connecting to the console, but I get Could not connect to graphic server (null). Not

I have noticed what seems to me to be a quirk, but wanted to see if this is correct behaviour, or perhaps my configuration. I am running a test install ov oVirt 3.3.2 in an all-in-one install. My test box only has one physical NIC, so I am using that for management/external network

Quoting Lior Vernia lver...@redhat.com: It's a quirk of oVirt at the moment :) The interface state as shown in the GUI currently has very little to do with whether there's connectivity on a network. There should be an open RFE for connectivity OK, so at this point it is a cosmetic issue as

Hello, I did some updates to my test installation from an unofficial repo (I had installed a compile version of qemu-kvm-rhev from a private repo). After rebooting, I was encountering errors with adding networks (when I tried to save, it would say that my already-exisiting networks were being

I cannot speak to oVirt in particular, but I run a Elastix PBX on my Xen server at home (soon to be replaced by oVirt). It is very lightly used (just my wife and I) but I have had no problems with it. The company I work for runs our PBX (trixbox) off a VMware cluster in our colo. It
