oVirt Infra

The ovirt.infra role enables you to set up oVirt infrastructure including: mac pools, data centers, clusters, networks, hosts, users, and groups.

Target machine

In case you use this role to do user management, it will use ovirt-aaa-jdbc-tool, which is located on engine machine, so you must execute the role on engine machine.

Note

Please note that when installing this role from Ansible Galaxy you are instructed to run following command:

$ ansible-galaxy install ovirt.infra

This will download the role to the directory with the same name as you specified on the command line, in this case ovirt.infra. But note that it is case sensitive, so if you specify for example OVIRT.infra it will download the same role, but it will add it to the directory named OVIRT.infra, so you later always have to use this role with upper case prefix. So be careful how you specify the name of the role on command line.

For the RPM installation we install three legacy names ovirt.infra, oVirt.infra and ovirt-infra. So you can use any of this name. This documentation and examples in this repository are using name ovirt.infra. oVirt.infra and ovirt-infra role names are deprecated.

Requirements

  • oVirt Python SDK version 4.2
  • Ansible version 2.5
