Description of problem:

Section 2.1.2 - Configuring a RHEL-Based Self-Hosted Engine
There should be a prerequisite stating that self-hosted engine requires its own storage domain (e.g. storage.example.com:/hosted_engine/nfs). It currently sends you to a guide that only has you prepare export,data,iso. 

In Section 2.2.2, the instructions suddenly references storage.example.com:/hosted_engine/nfs without stating how or when you were supposed to have created it. It should point back to the prerequisite saying how to create it. Something like "if you haven't already created the hosted_engine/nfs domain then please go back to the prequisites to create it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Deploying new RHV 4.0 environment

Comment 1 Yaniv Lavi 2016-11-01 13:27:50 UTC
Prerequisites should have one one bullet to state that storage is needed for the HE itself.

Comment 2 Tahlia Richardson 2017-01-13 01:01:07 UTC
New prerequisite should also specify the required size. 

GSS has also requested that we backport this addition to 3.6 (and 3.5, but I suspect we're past the point of pushing updates that far back). 

Is the size requirement different between 3.6 and 4.0? 

See also BZ#1392267 where Marina wonders if 50GB may not be enough if the hosted engine is also hosting the DWH database.

Comment 3 Lucy Bopf 2017-02-08 00:53:14 UTC
Assigning to Tahlia for review.

Adding bug 1351213 as a dependent, because the items are related.

Comment 5 Yaniv Lavi 2017-02-14 07:19:11 UTC
Can you please help get a review for this?

Comment 6 Sandro Bonazzola 2017-02-14 12:42:35 UTC
Sure. Simone, can you please review?

Comment 9 Byron Gravenorst 2017-02-24 05:46:56 UTC
Reviewed and verified. Added Revision history to 3.6.

Comment 10 Tahlia Richardson 2017-03-08 01:03:34 UTC
Now published at 

Currently experiencing issues publishing for 3.6, but this content will be published in the 3.6 Self-Hosted Engine Guide as soon as that is resolved.
