@dclarizio can you review this question from @han and forward to a SME if necessary.


#3

@blomquisg can you look into this? Perhaps the multiple endpoints will be addressing it, but may also be an existing bug.


#4

@rpo, @Fryguy, does this look familiar? I don’t know what restrictions are in place for what types of ESX hosts can be added directly.


#5

We don’t support adding Hosts like this anymore. The button to do so should probably be removed (I thought it already was, but I guess not).

@han If you want to manage a single ESX Host, you should be able to add it as a new Infrastructure Provider directly. If you are trying to provision a new ESX Host, you would have to use the bare metal provisioning option.

@gmccullough I think you know about this the best…is there anything I left out?


#6

It sounds like @han is trying to add an existing ESX host, not bare-metal provisioning. The proper way to do that is adding it as a Provider as @Fryguy pointed out.


#7

thanks:grinning:
could i add a ovirt host directly by this way (from Infrastructure Provider)?


#8

I don’t believe so. The VMware Provider is able to talk to a host directly because it relies on the fact that an ESX host exposes the exact same API that vSphere exposes. So the underlying code doesn’t know the difference. I don’t believe Rhev does this, so it won’t work.
