Wonderful thank you. Once I install oVirt in KVM (without oVirt) will I be able to import the VM in oVirt after I'm up?

how critical is the availability?
you could place it in a VM on shared storage.
then launch it on one host.
but you should never launch it on the other host before you made sure it doesn't run on the first node, or it will be corrupted.
you also want to set the SPM priority on the node it is running to lower than the other node so SPM won't be scheduled on engine node.

        Thank you Itamar, much appreciated...

        So how would you go about getting this setup if you only have 2 host

    are they supposed to be in same cluster with shared storage, live
    migration, etc.?

                 Hi all,

                 I am starting a small hosting business and want to use
        oVirt w/
                 KVM as
                 my virtualization platform.

                 I currently have 2 host servers and an iSCSI NAS.

                 Do I need a dedicated machine to run oVirt? Can I run
        it from a VM?

             either will work, but not easy right now to host the engine
        on its
             own hypervisor.

                 Can I use the all-in-one solution in a Production
                 with a
                 2nd host? ... would I need to install oVirt on both
        hosts, in
                 the event
                 that one of my servers went down?

             the all-in-one is mostly intended for POC level, using
        local storage
             of the host.
             if you plan to use both hosts with local storage, you
        should be able
             to use it, depending on strength of your hosts.

                 I am trying to see how I can survive if my oVirt server
                 It would
                 be great if it ran from a VM but I can also see issues with
                 doing that...

                 Another option would be to run oVirt on my workstation
        and have it
                 connect to my 2 host servers in colocation over the

             should work over WAN, but if you are hosting, wouldn't
        users need to
             access the engine / your workstation?

                 Please let me know how you've accomplished an oVirt
        setup with 2

                 Thank you!
