Install / Upgrade from previous versions

Fedora / CentOS / RHEL

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

# yum localinstall http://resources.ovirt.org/pub/yum-repo/ovirt-release36.rpm

If you are upgrading from a previous version, you may have the ovirt-release35 package already installed on your system. You can then install ovirt-release36.rpm as in a clean install side-by-side.

Once ovirt-release36 package is installed, you will have the ovirt-3.6 stable repository and any other repository needed for satisfying dependencies enabled by default.

If you’re installing oVirt 3.6.4 on a clean host, you should read our Quick Start Guide.

If you are upgrading from oVirt < 3.5.0, you must first upgrade to oVirt 3.5.6. Please see oVirt 3.5.6 Release Notes for upgrade instructions.

For upgrading now you just need to execute:

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

oVirt Hosted Engine

If you’re going to install oVirt as Hosted Engine on a clean system please follow Hosted_Engine_Howto#Fresh_Install guide.
