Accessing your RHEV VMs with your iPad and Spice!

A friend of mine sent me a link to a new project that aim to provide a HTML5 client for the Spice protocol ( He asked me to check if I can access my VMs under RHEV with my iPad.

Playing with RHEV 3.1

I took the snowy weekend to play with the new release of RHEV 3.1. This new release come with an impressive set of new features, including the removal of the requisite of Internet Explorer! Also included (and to be reviewed in a future post) is the possibility to use a Gluster based storage with RHEV!

oVirt and GlusterFS

I was checking the wiki of oVirt yesterday when I saw something that I was not aware of : oVirt already support GlusterFS! Not everything is there and working 100% but it’s developing rapidly.

Beware of the semaphores!

I just run into a weird problem today when I was in the process of migrating a bunch of servers from an old HP SAN to a shiny new EMC VMAX.

The client have chosen to use Powerpath for the multipathing software on RHEL 5. The servers in question run multiple Oracle databases into a grid configuration. We had no problem with the old SAN and we had no problem with the new EMC VMAX using dm-multipath.

RHEV 3 beta

Red Hat has released the first public beta for RHEV 3 in the last week or so. I didn’t have time to play with it since yesterday, waiting for the rest of Irene to strike my city.

So, I grabbed the documentation, go through it rapidly and start the installation on a spare server I have at home. The first thing to notice is how wonderful it is to just “yum install rhevm”! Seriously, compare that to the need to install Windows 2k8, Active Directory, .Net, etc, etc… This is a major step up for RHEV.

Finally got my RHCA!

Wow, I finally got the result of my RH442 exam and I pass! This was my fifth certificates of expertise, so I got another mail from Red Hat confirming that I got my RHCA!

My goal was to get my RHCA in one year, passing all the exams on the first try. I took 4 months more but I got my objective of passing all of them on the first try!

This is not really related to Fedora but I just wanted to share that ;)
