Developers All In One


Currently compatible for working in non-secure mode only.

All In One Developer’s Environment Installation step by step


  1. Linux based operating system with support for OpenJDK 1.6.0, Maven and PostgreSQL 8.4.8 (or higher).
  2. An Internet connection.

Installation flow

From now on work under your personal user.

  $> mkdir ~/dev/
  $> cd ~/dev/

Installing vdsm

  $> git clone
  $> yum install pyflakes python-pep8 automake autoconf python-devel python-nose
  $> ./ --system && ./configure
  $> make rpm
  $> yum localinstall ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/vdsm ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/vdsm_python ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/vdsm_cli ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/vdsm_xmlrpc ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/vdsm_bootstrap

Installing ovirt-engine

follow the steps in

  • Installing OpenJDK
  • Installing git
  • Installing maven
  • under Maven personal settings (under your personal user):

        oVirtEnvSettings                      /usr/share/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final             /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk.x86_64             always             ~/dev/jboss         
  • Please notice that when using F17 you should update to java 7

Installing JBoss AS - Manually (From Zips)

  $> cd /usr/share `$> wget `[``](
  $> tar zxvf jboss-as-7.1.1.Final.tar.gz
  $> ln -s /usr/share/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final /usr/share/jboss-as
  $> # Change the JBOSS_HOME environment variable to the new location:
  $> echo "export JBOSS_HOME=/usr/share/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final" >> ~/.bashrc
  $> su - -c 'chmod -R 777 /usr/share/jboss-as*'
  $> mkdir ~/dev/jboss

Working with jboss profiles

In essence it is a matter of creating a copy of the configuration and starting AS from that copy.

   $> cp -a $JBOSS_HOME/standalone ~/dev/jboss/standalone
   $> vi dev/ovirt-engine/pom.xml

Search for “jbossServer” and change the line to:


To start the jboss-as in standalone mode: $> $JBOSS_HOME/bin/ -Djboss.server.base.dir=$GIT_HOME/standalone # make sure to change $GIT_HOMR to your user’s directory

  • Clone oVirt-engine codebase into: ~/dev/ovirt/
  • Installing the database (/wiki/Installing_PostgreSQL_DB)
  • Creating the database
  • Build (mvn2 clean install -Pgwt-admin,gwt-user -DskipTests=true)
  • Deploy
  • Deploying engine-config & engine-manage-domains
  • Install ovirt_engine_sdk rpm
  • set vds install to false:

    $> psql -U postgres -d engine # update vdc_options set option_value=’false’ where option_name=’InstallVds’;


  • Set engine-ovirt secure mode to false:

    $> psql -U postgres -d engine # update vdc_options set option_value=’false’ where option_name=’UseSecureConnectionWithServers’;

  • Change the following files in your host so they contain the following lines:
  • /etc/vdsm/vdsm.conf



  • /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf



    lock_manager = ”sanlock”

  • /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf

    listen_addr=”” unix_sock_group=”kvm” unix_sock_rw_perms=”0770” auth_unix_rw=”sasl” save_image_format=”lzop” log_outputs=”1:file:/var/log/libvirtd.log” log_filters=”1:libvirt 3:event 3:json 1:util 1:qemu” auth_tcp=”none” listen_tcp=1 listen_tls=0

  • Try:

    $> vdsClient 0 getVdsCaps

If it works then vdsm is in non-secure mode.

Create the bridge

  $> brctl addbr ovirtmgmt
  $> service vdsmd restart

verify the creation of the bridge:

  $> ifconfig -a
  • Switch jboss on:

/usr/share/jboss-as-7.1.1.Final/bin/ -Djboss.server.base.dir=/home/ykaplan/dev/jboss/standalone

  • Add new host:

with local IP ( and check that the host status is: Up.

Congratulations, you’re good to go!
