  • Install and configure KVM and KVM Management Tools on CentOS 8
dnf install @virt virt-top libvirt-devel libguestfs-tools -y
  • Start and enable KVM libvirtd service
systemctl start libvirtd && systemctl enable libvirtd
  • Download the installer script for webvirtCloud KVM Management

NOTE: Now, we will add KVM Compute Hosts to Manage, but first we will generate ssh keys to access and connect these compute hosts

  • Generate ssh keys
sudo -u nginx ssh-keygen
  •  Disable StrictHostKeyChecking(Optional)
vim /var/lib/nginx/.ssh/config
  • Then add the following
Host * 
StrictHostKeyChecking no
  • Set an appropriate ownership of the SSH configuration file to nginx user
chown nginx -R /var/lib/nginx/.ssh/config
  •  Upload webvirtcloud public key into authorized keys on the compute node.

For local KVM node:

cat /var/lib/nginx/.ssh/ >>~/.ssh/authorized_keys

For remote KVM node:

sudo -u nginx ssh-copy-id root@exampleCompute1
  • On the WebVirt Cloud, go to Computes then choose SSH.
  • Choose SSH connection to add your KVM Nodes and input KVM node details as shown below.
  • If everything is Ok, the Status of the new node should show Connected


That’s it
