Hi folks, as I mentioned earlier in the week, I’ll be in the Northeast next week for the VTUG Winter Warmer event. If you can be there, great.. if not, Stu Miniman of “The Cube” has been gracious enough to invite me to an interview and will be broadcasting it on Thursday, Jan 19th.
Here are the details:

Many thanks to Stu!
Hi Folks – if any of you are going to be at the VTUG Winter Warmer at Gillette Stadium, come find me, I’ve got a keynote at 10am at “West Side South”. If you’re going to be in the area, it’s an event that’s been going on for several years now and should be fun..
I’ll be talking about Red Hat’s strategy in the Hybrid Cloud and especially how RHV fits into that.
I believe (don’t quote me on this) that the event is free for VTUG members, and that all you need to do is register to become a VTUG member (I believe that is also free) before the event.
VTUG Winter Warmer Agenda
Date: January 19, 2017
Location: Gillette Stadium, Patriot Place, Foxboro MA
Hope to see you there,
Hi Folks.. the last time I left off, we had just finished setting up the initial pieces for hosted engine (RHEL configuration) in order to provide HA for RHV-M. Today we’re going to add an additional host and test things out.
Let’s get going! Continue reading “How to Setup HA for RHV-M pt3”
Hi folks, I’m finally getting around to the high availability for RHV-M (hosted engine) walk through demo that I promised. The truth is that due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to go to “plan b”. The end result is still the same, and the workflows are almost identical, but the “in betweens” are just a bit different.
Allow me to illuminate.. Continue reading “How to Setup HA for RHV-M pt2”
Hi folks! After plowing through my home lab, I’m ready to walk you through setting up RHV-M in a “self-hosted engine” (HA) configuration. I’ve talked about this in some previous articles if you need to familiarize yourself with what the significance is or why someone might want to go with this approach over a standard deployment.
Let’s get to it. Continue reading “How to Setup HA for RHV-M 4 pt1”
Hi folks, here’s another “pre” post. What I mean by that is that in the process of creating a demo and the surrounding article, I found I needed to create a sidebar article in order to show how configure an important component. In this case, the requirement to fulfill forward and reverse name server resolution in RHV has lead me to create a basic DNS server. In this case, “dnsmasq” is a perfect solution… Continue reading “RHV and DNS”
Here is a quick post for you guys. I’m in the midst of creating a follow up to one of my other articles and it dawns on me that I need to do this particular post first.. A post within a post, or before a post, or something. In either case, I need to provide an update to configuring NFS to poke through a firewall in RHEL 7 for the purpose of RHV in a home lab.. or other use cases. Read on, if you will… Continue reading “NFS & Firewalls in RHEL 7”
Hi folks, so time ago (years?) I wrote about how to put together High Availability for RHV-M. At the time the actual configuration that I proposed was solid, if a little unorthodox. Still, it certainly left room for improvement. In this week’s post, I’m updating the configuration with something that Red Hat fully supports. They refer to the configuration as Self-Hosted Engine. Continue reading “High Availability for RHV-M”
Hi folks, the Captain is taking a few weeks off as he has a brand new instance being spun up this week, if you catch my drift… 🙂 You know, the kind of instance that takes 9 months to boot… I expect to be back at the keyboard by the end of October, but don’t be alarmed if you don’t see much in the way of posts, demos, or tweets. It’s all good.
Hi folks, I recently posted an article on one of the official Red Hat blogs about the new Neutron integration between RHV and RHOSP. I have to say it’s very cool and might change the way you look at networking capabilities in RHV, at least if you’re also using RHOSP in the same data center.
