[Users] oVirt Node 3.0.3-1 for oVirt 3.3 release

Replying to my own message here.
I've just tried to install this latest oVirt node image again and made notes where it fell over.

At the 'Keyboard layout selection' screen I press enter to select the default 'US English' option.
After a few seconds delay I then get this error screen:

An exception occurred

After pressing close I'm then back at the 'Keyboard layout selection' screen.
If I then press enter on 'US international' then tab down to the option to continue I can make my way to the screen where I have to enter the password for the admin user.  After continuing from there I immediately get an error on the install progress screen - at the 40% point.
The error reads:

Value Error ('invalid literal for int() with base10: ''",)

I just tried another install and this time selected 'US International' first time from the 'Keyboard layout selection' screen.

Whether I do a regular install (default boot screen option) or choose 'reinstall' from the troubleshooting menu I get tripped up at the same spot.
When it comes time to select a keyboard layout (I think this is correct) US English is the default.  I press enter at that point and after a short delay there is a very uninformative error message that appears.  I can't remember what it is off the top of my head and the systems are at work (I'm at home now).
After this point I can continue but the install fails immediately after I get past the install target selection screen.
Has anyone successfully installed a node using this iso image?
I even tried removing partitions from the drive beforehand, to the point of dd'ing the first 512 bytes to make sure there was no partition table.
This didn't help - I still ran into the install error described above.

I particularly wanted to try an FC19 based node to try out live storage migration on NFS, as I was having problems with the EL6.4 node with this.
Is there a chance that that issue might be resolved for EL6 based nodes by an upcoming  new EL6.5 based node spin?

Sorry I cannot provide the exact error details for the install issue now, but I can get the error detail in the next couple of days if required.


   This time the install seems to work.
Unfortunately when it comes up the SSH service doesn't seem to be working.  When I try and ssh to the machine I get the following:
Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer

The above was after configuring the node for an Ovirt engine, accepting the certificate and entering a password.
The ovirt web GUI shows this node as non responsive.
