I assume that when we shutdown a vm, the cpu and memory are released back to the host. My question is about a linux vm that has been suspended or put into hibernate mode, what happens to the allocated resources?
Another question I have is about adding a user to the vm during the creation process. is that possible?
thanks for helping out
Hi everybody. We are trying to transfer our project from using VMware vCenter to oVirt. Everything looks good, but when it comes to snapshots there is a quite big difference. In current application we are using VM snapshots to switch the VM from one state to another.
Each VM has it's initial snapshot (we can go back anytime we need), but it can also have several additional snapshots with some VM modifications (like applications added or so). We are able to go from one state to another using "revert to snapshot" function served by vCenter.
What I understand this is not possible in oVirt. If I revert from newer snapshot to older one all snapshots that were created after the older one will get deleted. I understand the reason (having one base file and having only diffs per each snapshot) and here comes the question...
What would be the best solution to simulate this vCenter option? To be able to quickly swap from one state to another (and back of course) on one particular VM?
Thanks in advance!
We are a server building company, we already supply 2-3 high availability storage clusters/virtualization per month based on commercial/paid software.
For lower end clients we like to use oVirt hyperconverged, would like support/share knowledge with my team.
I have a team of 5 technicians who need training.
First we need help setting up a virtual oVirt cluster. Once this works, we will test performance/stability/features/....
If we're happy with the solution, my team needs training and also if we encounter a very difficult issue we would like to have a paid support channel.
I would prefer a partner who has at least 3 engineers [ holidays etc ]. Do you have a lot of experience with your team, please PM me.
Need to deploy a VM of a Windows 11 guest. Windows 11 requires TPM 2.0 support for it to be able to install. Does Ovirt support TPM devices somehow and if so how do I present the VM with a TPM device that can be detected by the Windows 11 setup installer? Thanks in advance for any help here.

This is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/1990268
It is fixed in:
$ git describe 6094e672781f593767dc313ebd53d23334511f5a
You need to upgrade vdsm.
The only workaround for now is to use a file based storage domain
(e.g. NFS) for the ISO
When the issue is fixed, you can copy the ISO disks to another storage
domain, and remove
the file based domain.
