How to install RHEV Manager 3.0 (RHEVM)?

In order to install RHEVM we’ll need 2 things:

  • RHEL 6.2 x64
  • RHN account

Afterwards we’ll need to install RHEL 6.2 x64 with @base channel and update it to the minor release available once it is fully installed:

rhn_register
yum upgrade -y

And then we’ll proceed installing the necessary channels for RHEVM:

rhn-channel --add -c rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhevm-3
rhn-channel --add -c jbappplatform-5-x86_64-server-6-rpm
rhn-channel --add -c rhel-x86_64-server-supplementary-6
rhn-channel --add -c rhel-x86_64-server-6-rhevh

And as a last step we’ll only need to install RHEVM and configure it:

yum install -y rhevm
rhevm-setup

Afterwards you’re good to go to the RHEVM Administration Portal:

  • http://<FQDN>:8080/
  • https://<FQDN:8443/RHEVManager

REMEMBER that RHEV Manager only works with clients that can satisfy this requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows (7, XP, 2003 or 2008) with Internet Explorer 7 and above
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4
