Thanks for the reply Fabien. I had to un-sub because I was getting too much mail.
ovirt-node-iso-3.6-0.999.201511061021.el7.centos.iso ovirt-engine-appliance-20151104.0-1.el7.centos.ova (extracted from ovirt-hosted-engine-appliance RPM as described) I would love if the Node TUI could default to a HTTP hosted OVA instead of requiring me to extract, place it on a webserver. I tried both the TUI method, and dropping to root & running the command line node-hosted-engine setup. Always ended up with 16GB. =) cheers ________________________________________ From: Fabian Deutsch <fdeut...@redhat.com> Sent: December 10, 2015 8:38 AM To: Alain Gilmor Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [ovirt-users] How To: Node Hosted-Engine with less then 16GB On Thu, Dec 3, 2015 at 6:23 PM, Alain Gilmor <alain.gil...@geemedia.com> wrote: > Here’s a short guide for people having trouble setting up Hosted-Engine > using only Ovirt Nodes.
