The default is an OS type setting, you can change/override that in osinfo[1].
Another alternative is to just use a template with it (including a system-wide 
change via Blank template)

You can also use the combined display of SPICE+VNC which allows you to connect 
with either protocol
For the client it’s a user’s preference setting (to use remote-viewer or 
novnc/spice-html5)

As for the original question, none of the existing MacOS SPICE clients are 
enterprise quality(that’s subjective of course:), but configuring both gives 
you an easy way how to switch to vnc for particular user or in case of problems

Thanks,

Hi Ben,

It's always great to get constructive feedback.
I've tried to look for bugs you have reported, for RHEL, oVirt or Fedora,
but did not find any[1].
Perhaps I was searching with the wrong username.

Seriously, you should have provided some more insights to support your
statement. What reliability issues did you encounter in oVirt that are
not present in Xenserver?

I have deployed *several* oVirt setups since 2012 and haven't found a
single realibility issue since then. Of course, there have been some bugs,
but the oVirt project made *tremendous* progress since 2012.

Hi,

for what it's worth, here is a matrix like comparison (you can configure
the products and should select rhev for ovirt like features):

https://www.whatmatrix.com/comparison/Virtualization

some features of xen are not available in ovirt/rhev, e.g. live
migration with local storage.

And probably not surprisingly, oVirt is running oVirt in production:

for all the oVirt Ci infrastructure (13 hosts, 200 VMs).

I feel like there used to be a way to do this at the cluster level but I

If someone made a comparison (even if it's just for their own specific use

I'd cautiously say 'in between'. We strive to ensure oVirt is stable, and I

We also make an effort to quickly release fixes (minor releases). That
being said, RHV has a longer life cycle, and for example, when oVirt
stopped releasing oVirt 3.6.x, Red Hat continued to release minor versions
of it.

We have hundreds of oVirt users running it in production, many in large

Hello again,

Setting the folder permissions to vdsm:kvm (36:36) done the trick to make NFS 
work. I wasn't expecting this to work since it does not make sense to me, 
making a parallel with the iSCSI problem.

I'm starting to believe that's something just bad. Perhaps the Storage system 
is running with something broken or the host machine is just unstable.

I will consider this as solved, since further inside the oVirt Engine panel I 
was able to mount and use the same iSCSI sharing.

But let me ask for sincere answers here:

1. oVirt is feature complete comparing to RHEV?

2. Should I migrate from XenServer to oVirt? This is biased, I know, but I 
would like to hear opinions. The folks with @redhat.com email addresses will 
know how to advocate in favor of oVirt.

3. Some "journalists" says that oVirt is like Fedora in comparison to RHEL, is 
this really true? Or it's more aligned with a CentOS-like release? Because 
Fedora isn't really an Enterprise OS, and I was looking for an Enterprise 
Hypervisor. I'm aware that oVirt is the upstream from RHEV.

4. There is any good SPICE client for macOS? Or should I just use the HTML5 
version instead?

Thanks,

Indeed - may be two different issues. Let us know how the NFS works first, then

So I’ve decommissioned a XenServer machine that was in production just to try 
oVirt. The hardware is not new, but’s it’s very capable: Dual Xeon E5506 with 
48GB of system RAM, but I can’t get the hosted engine to work, it always 
insults my hardware: --- Hosted Engine deployment failed: this system is not

It’s definitely a problem on the storage subsystem, the error is just random, 
at this moment I’ve got:

[ ERROR ] Failed to execute stage 'Misc configuration': [-32605] No response

But on other tries it came up with something like this:

No response for JSON-RPC Volume.getSize request.

I was thinking that the problem was on the NFSv3 server on our FreeNAS box, so 
I’ve changed to an iSCSI backend, but the problem continues.

Can't say anything about your issues without the logs but there's nothing wrong 
with FreeNAS (FreeBSD) NFS, I've been running oVirt with FreeBSD's NFS since 
oVirt 3.2 so...

Could you share your relevant exports configuration to make sure he's using 
something that you know works?


"You're holding it wrong":) Sorry, I know you're frustrated but that's what I

This happens at the very end of the ovirt-hosted-engine-setup command, which

Indeed - may be two different issues. Let us know how the NFS works first,
then let's try with iSCSI.

Re: [ovirt-users] Frustration defines the deployment of Hosted Engine

2017-06-23 Thread Vinícius Ferrão
Hello Adam and Karli,

I will remap uid and gid of NFS to 36 and try again with NFS sharing.

But this does not make much sense, because on iSCSI this should not happen. 
There are no permissions involved and when oVirt runs the hosted-engine setup 
it creates the ext3 filesystem on the iSCSI share without any issue. Here’s a 
photo of the network bandwidth during the OVF deployment: 
http://www.if.ufrj.br/~ferrao/ovirt/bandwidth-iscsi-ovf.jpg

So it’s appears to be working. Something happens after the deployment that 
brokes the connections and kills vdsm.

Thanks,
V.

Re: [ovirt-users] Frustration defines the deployment of Hosted Engine

2017-06-23 Thread Vinícius Ferrão
Hello Adam,

Since the NFSv3 server is running on a FreeBSD based system I don’t want to 
mess with permissions (that installation was only a test). So I’ve mapped all 
users to root and all groups to wheel: everyone has permission to do anything 
on any file.

# cat /etc/exports
/mnt/pool/ovirt  -alldirs -mapall=root:wheel 146.164.36.137

The issue happens on the same point, either on NFS or on iSCSI.

And finally here are the files:

V.

I think this might be part of your problem.  The host drops privileges to
vdsm:kvm and needs to work with files which may not be world writable.
Consider changing the above to:

/mnt/pool/ovirt  -alldirs -mapall=36:36 146.164.36.137

Since the vdsm user is always 36 and the kvm group is always 36.

Please provide links to the files /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log
and /var/log/sanlock.log on the host you are attempting to use.  Does the
problem happen in the same step when using NFS vs. ISCSI?  How are you
configuring the NFS export that you give to hosted-engine to use?
