RHV 4.3 Guest Agents

“! The latest guest agent needs to be installed and running on the guest”

Documentation for RHV-M guest agent installation for RHEL6 and RHEL7 it suggests that the service name is ovirt-guest-agent – this does not look to be the case, and qemu-ga works just fine (when that fails). As an aide-memoire to myself if nothing else – the below work at the time of writing and make the above error message go away. Huzzah!

Install RHEL6 RHV Guest Agent

# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-6-server-rhv-4-agent-rpms
# yum install qemu-guest-agent
# service qemu-ga start
# chkconfig qemu-ga on

Install RHEL7 RHV Guest Agent

# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rh-common-rpms
# yum install qemu-guest-agent
# systemctl enable qemu-ga
# systemctl start qemu-ga

Install RHEL8 RHV Guest Agent

# subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-rpms
# systemctl start qemu-guest-agent
# systemctl enable qemu-guest-agent
