Description Javier Coscia 2015-11-10 14:12:28 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently, the optional repository needs to be enabled to successfully install the 'ovirt-hosted-engine-setup' RPM along with its dependencies in a RHEL 7.1 Self-hosted engine environment. Lack of it will throw unsolved dependencies issues with yum

How reproducible:
All the time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a plain RHEL 7.1
2. Subscribe the system and enable repositories described in [1]
3. Install ovirt-hosted-engine-setup with yum

Actual results:
Yum throws unsolved dependencies for the ovirt-hosted-engine-setup package

Expected results:
Successful installation of the ovirt-hosted-engine-setup package

Additional info:
[1] https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.5/html/Installation_Guide/Subscribing_to_the_Required_Entitlements.html

Need to enable optional repo:
[root@rhel71 ~]# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-optional-rpms
Repository 'rhel-7-server-optional-rpms' is enabled for this system.

Comment 6 Marina Kalinin 2015-11-24 20:54:50 UTC
Weird. On 7.2 machine, I succeed to install ovirt-hosted-engine-setup package without the supplementary channel.
   ovirt-hosted-engine-setup.noarch 0:1.3.0-1.el7ev

I have only this 2 enabled:

But I didn't run the setup itself yet.

This content is now live on the Customer Portal.


Comment 8 Marina Kalinin 2015-12-02 01:30:52 UTC
I must comment, that I installed successfully hosted-engine 3.6 beta 1 on a RHEL 7.2 host with only 2 channels:


Sandro, are you responsible for this part?
Can you clarify what are the required channels?

Comment 9 Sandro Bonazzola 2015-12-14 15:33:02 UTC
Marina no, I'm not handling channels. moving to Joey.
