oVirt 4.4 : Configure oVirt Admin Node2020/07/13

Install oVirt which is the Open Source implementation of Red Hat Virtualization (RHV).
This example is based on the environment like follows.
+-----------------------+          |          +-----------------------+
|   [   Admin Node   ]  | || [    oVirt Engine   ] |
|    dlp.srv.world      +----------+----------+     ctrl.srv.world    |
|                       |          |          |                       |
+-----------------------+          |          +-----------------------+
+-----------------------+          |
| [   Shared Storage  ] | |
|     nfs.srv.world     +----------+
|                       |

[oVirt Engine] is deployed as a Virtual machine on Admin Node.
So it needs to prepare an IP address to asign for the VM.
Shared storage is needed on oVirt Nodes.
It's possible to use NFS, ISCSI, FCP, GlusterFS for it.
on this example, it uses NFS like above.
Install SMTP Server on a Node, refer to here.
It is used for notification messages on oVirt Nodes.
On this example, install it on Admin Node.
Install NFS Server to configure shared storage, refer to here.
On this example, configure [/var/lib/ovirt-share] directory as a shared storage on [nfs.srv.world].
[3] Create users and groups for oVirt requirements on NFS Server.
[root@nfs ~]#
groupadd kvm -g 36

[root@nfs ~]#
useradd vdsm -u 36 -g 36 -s /sbin/nologin -M -d /

[root@nfs ~]#
chown -R vdsm:kvm /var/lib/ovirt-share

[root@nfs ~]#
chmod 755 /var/lib/ovirt-share

[4] Configure [oVirt Engine] on Admin Node.
[root@dlp ~]#
dnf -y install https://resources.ovirt.org/pub/yum-repo/ovirt-release44.rpm
[root@dlp ~]#
dnf -y install ovirt-hosted-engine-setup
[root@dlp ~]#
hosted-engine --deploy

[ INFO  ] Stage: Environment setup
          During customization use CTRL-D to abort.
          Continuing will configure this host for serving as hypervisor and will create a local VM with a running engine.
          The locally running engine will be used to configure a new storage domain and create a VM there.
          At the end the disk of the local VM will be moved to the shared storage.
