RHA Labs as VMs?

Hey All, 

Is it possible, or has anyone done any work, to get the Dual-Boot labs working as OVAs? My IT department is hesitant to allow dual-booting, but they would allow VMs using something like VirtualBox on local machines. Is this possible or allowed? If so, would it be possible to have the OVAs hosted via FTP downloads? 

(For REL8 labs)

Hello Tobin, one of our students created a video tutorial that details how to make a VMWare vApp from the Red Hat RHEL8  USB. His technique worked for RHEL8 RH124/134, RH294, and DO180!   Video

Enjoy!

Ah, this is really cool! Does this also include the full setup with the "workstation," "servera," "serverb" etc... with the grade scripts?

Yes, it is a virtualized file of the physical host that contains all of the imbedded VMs. Networking between the VMs has been configured and verified.

The Vapp works with VMWare Workstation, but can easily be exported into an OVF file and imported Virtualbox, ESX, etc.

Enjoy! :-}

That link seems to be down right now. Does the video exist somewhere else?

 

Edit: Nevermind. I found it. Thanks!

Yes, for RH124/134 everything is included- bastion, servera, serverb, and workstation. Classroom is hidden.

For RH294, VMs include bastion, servera, serverb, serverc, serverd, and workstation. Classroom is again hidden.

I have tried to make updated RHEL82 virtual machine for VMware Workstation 16.1. VMs with RHEL82 need lot of CPU resources compared to VMs with RHEL80.

I have installed two missing components which are needed for working display resize and clipboard. This works with also RHEL80.

dnf install -y open-vm-tools-desktop xorg-x11-drv-vmware

I had also problem with AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU. Kernel or KVM needed update. I updated Foundation0 to 8.3 which corrected CPU problem. There is also workaround for 8.2 (Insert options kvm ignore_msrs=Y to /etc/modprobe.conf/kvm.conf).


Do others have experiences with the new version?
