I have downloaded the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3 Beta iso (rhevh-6.2-20111108.0.iso 129 mb), but i am not able to install it on VMware workstation 8, because every time it stuck on loading os. for more information check the attached screen shot
and on same workstation i am able to successfully run Hyper-v and RHEL 6.0 with KVM feature enable and also able to create a vms on these.
Could you please help me to resolve this issue
Have a visit following link. Here is a draft guideline to installation process Enterprise Virtualization 3 Beta on RedHat Enterprise.
My installation was successful. But it is not booting, throwing an error “ Kernel panic – not syncing: Attempted to kill init!’
I am trying it on workstation 7
It looks like Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3 Beta does not have a device driver for the LSI Logic SCSI controller. You should be able to work around this problem by selecting the "LSI Logic SAS" SCSI controller when creating your VM. Unfortunately, you won't be able to get much farther, since Workstation 7 does not virtualize the virtualization hardware of the physical CPU.
I'm still looking into the original poster's problem.
Thanks jmattson, it is working with "LSI Logic SAS" on workstation 7
but with workstation 8 I am slso struck exactly at the same place where RohitVCP7 is struck. log attached.
I've set up a VM based on your configuration, and I am not seeing any problems with Workstation 8. Can you press ESC in the guest console when it gets stuck and upload a screenshot?
That's where I was getting stuck before adding apic.xapic.enable=FALSE. Another workaround I found was adding vcpu.hotadd=FALSE, but this doesn't appear to be set to TRUE in your log file, so I would expect your configuration to work.
Can you try upgrading your virtual hardware (VM->Manage->Change Hardware Compatibility)?
Thanks for the help, after configure the above step i am able to install RHEVH 3.0 inside vmware workstation 8.0.
I have created the below step by step document of the same;
