Install / Upgrade from previous versions

Fedora / CentOS / RHEL

In order to install it on a clean system, you need to install

# yum localinstall

If you’re upgrading from a previous version you should have ovirt-release package already installed on your system.

You can then install ovirt-release34.rpm as in a clean install side-by-side.

If you’re upgrading from oVirt 3.4.0 you can now remove ovirt-release package:

  # yum remove ovirt-release
  # yum update "ovirt-engine-setup*"
  # engine-setup

If you’re upgrading from 3.3.2 or later, keep ovirt-release rpm in place until the upgrade is completed. See oVirt 3.4.0 release notes for upgrading from previous versions.

oVirt Live

A new oVirt Live ISO is available:
