Description Andrew Dahms 2014-07-18 01:40:11 UTC
There is a new 'Random Generator' tab in the New Virtual Machine and Edit Virtual Machine windows.

This tab contains a single check box that allows you to add a paravirtualized random number generator PCI device to a virtual machine, and should only need a quick note in the tables outlining options for virtual machines in the Administration Guide.

Hi Michal,

I've documented the Random Generator tab of the Admin Portal here: 

Should this new section go out with the RHEV 3.5-Beta docs? I've made a note that the RNG is only supported with a RHEL 6.6 host, but since 6.6 is still in Beta, would it be better to comment out this section until GA? 


Comment 4 Michal Skrivanek 2014-08-29 11:37:13 UTC
yes, please keep it in, I think it's ok
