In addition to the previous post, oVirt requires you to use a DNS entry,
not an IP address to access the web interface. If you don't run your own
DNS server, you can simply edit the host files on the client PCs. This is
quite easy to do. For example, just Google "edit host file on Windows".
Is there an easy way to do this?
