Overview

The oVirt module allows you to easily install oVirt engine and oVirt node with Puppet.

Module Description

oVirt is a virtualization management application. That means that you can use the oVirt management interface (the oVirt engine) to manage hardware nodes, storage and network resources, and to deploy and monitor virtual machines running in your data center. The ovirt module allows you to install the oVirt Engine (management host) and oVirt Node (hyperviser host) software on RedHat-based distros.

Setup

Setup Requirements:

RHEL and CentOS hosts need to have EPEL configured in order to fulfill oVirt rpm dependencies.

###Configuring the oVirt Engine

The only configuration you may need to perform will be around the ovirt::engine class. The default parameters are reasonable for a simple and common configuration. To manage an oVirt Engine with defaults:

class { 'ovirt::engine': }

Parameters can be passed in for a more customized configuration:

class { 'ovirt::engine':
  storage_type => 'fc',
}

Once you have completed the configuration of ovirt::engine, you can test the settings by visiting the web management interface in a web browser and logging in as admin@internal with the default password of admin.

###Configuring the oVirt Node

class { 'ovirt::node': }

Usage

###Creating an oVirt Engine

To create an oVirt Engine:

class { 'ovirt::engine': }

The oVirt Engine is now up and running. You can log in to the oVirt Engine's web administration portal with the username admin in the internal domain.

###Creating an oVirt Node

To create an oVirt Node:

class { 'ovirt::node': }

At this point, you are able to add the node to a host cluster using an oVirt Engine.

Reference

The ovirt module comes with several options for configuring the oVirt engine.

Classes:

###Class: ovirt: This class allows you to change the URL for the oVirt release package.

For example, if you maintain a local repository you could do this:

class { 'ovirt::engine':
  ovirt_release_base_url => 'http://ovirt.local.com/releases',
}

####ovirt_release_base_url This setting can be used to override the default url of http://ovirt.org/releases.

###Class: ovirt::engine This class allows you to configure the main settings for an oVirt Engine.

For example, if you want to use iSCSI for the default storage type in the default data center, you could do this:

class { 'ovirt::engine':
  storage_type => 'iscsi',
}

####application_mode This setting can be used to override the default ovirt application mode of both. Valid options are both, virt, gluster.

####storage_type This setting can be used to override the default ovirt storage type of nfs. Valid options are nfs, fc, iscsi, and posixfs.

####organization This setting can be used to override the default ovirt PKI organization of localdomain.

####nfs_config_enabled This setting can be used to override the default ovirt nfs configuration of true. Valid options are true and false.

####iso_domain_name This setting can be used to override the default ISO Domain Name of ISO_DOMAIN.

####iso_domain_mount_point This setting can be used to override the default ISO Domain Mount Point of /var/lib/exports/iso.

####admin_password This setting can be used to override the default ovirt admin password of admin.

####db_user This setting can be used to override the default database user of engine.

####db_password This setting can be used to override the default database password of dbpassword.

####db_host This setting can be used to override the default database host of localhost.

####db_port This setting can be used to override the default database port of 5432.

####firewall_manager This setting can be used to override the default firewall manager. The module uses iptables for RHEL and CentOS and firewalld for Fedora by default. Valid options are iptables and firewalld.

Limitations

This module is known to work with oVirt 3.3. Other versions of oVirt have not been tested.

This module has been tested with the following operating systems:

  • RHEL/CentOS 6.x
  • Fedora 19
