    Been looking to possibly take the plunge to try oVirt out.
    Looks amazing for what it is and it's capabilities.

    Will CentOS minimal ISO be sufficient enough for the base OS, or is the full DVD ISO required?

    You can use the Minimal install. I think I had to add a few dependencies but it wasn't awful.

    Thanks all.. was able to get it installed in a VM, using the CentOS 7 minimal install ISO.

    is this correct in how these are compared (equivalent): ?

    oVirt Engine = vcenter
    oVirt Node = esxi host

    the dependencies to oVirt are a bit extreme for me. Why do they insist on you configuring a database on your box ( a source for attack vectors ) to manage your VMs?

    I'll have to go and look but I thought it only installed the database on the management node. This is pretty standard with any kind of central managed system.

    My Ovirt node is turned off at the moment and I;n not near it so I can't look. The OVirt engine is a VM and is running and does have postgres on it but like I said above I expect that with any central management engine.
