Nobody working on oVirt is testing any release of Openstack in the recent
Strange... I think oVirt is the natural platform to test features to have
them on RHV if considered enterprise ready.
And reading the downstream latest documentation for RHV 4.2 I see this
regarding external providers:
And there is explicit reference to
without any particular restriction described
with the note:
Red Hat Virtualization supports Red Hat OpenStack Platform versions 8, 9,
10, 11, and 12 as external network providers.
BTW: the release cycles are here:
with the only note regarding Ceph as a provider for block storage to use
Add an OpenStack Block Storage (Cinder) instance for storage management to
the Red Hat Virtualization Manager. The OpenStack Cinder volumes are
provisioned by Ceph Storage.
Coming back to oVirt 4.2.7 I see all of the 3 above providers present and
referenced when I go and add external providers, so it doesn't seem to the
final user/admin as an abandoned feature
The Cinder/Ceph support was released as tech preview in 3.6, and no work was
done since then, and I think this will be deprecated soon.
Actually it seems yet a tech preview in latest 4.2, if the manual is
correct (see link given above for Cinder)
For 4.3 we are working on a different direction, using Cinderlib
This is a way to use Cinder drivers without Openstack installation.
The same library is used to provide Cinder based storage in Kubernetes.
You can find an early draft here for this feature. Note that it is
expected to be
updated in the next weeks, but it can give you some idea on what we are
This will be tested with some version of Cinder drivers. I guess we will
more info about it during 4.3 development.
I will go through reading them, thanks

I think Glance support should work. Elad, which version of Glance was
tested for 4.2?
Based on the restrictions described for Neutron Provider above, I right
deployed, always on CentOS 7.5 and using packstack allinone method, the
oldest release I found a repo for at
That is Ocata (aka the base for OSP 11) and at least the glance connection
works now out of the box, using the same parameters that dind't work with

And I'm able to see the pre-created cirros glance image provided by the
packstack installation in the added storage domain in oVirt:
Donna if a problem in configuration with packstack passing from Ocata to
Rocky or any feature itself that changed with Rocky.
I have both (Rocky server and Ocata server) and can compare them if it can
be of any help to have Rocky working with oVirt 4.2.7
Regarding which Openstack version can work best with oVirt, maybe
Openstack guys I added can give a better answer.
It would be of help to know cross relations and best combinations.
In the mean time I'm going ahead with Ocata and see Neutron and Cinder
