Subject Host KVM Installation documentation
Date Sun, 15 Apr 2018 04:38:49 GMT

I am surprised to see that RedHat is not supported/recommended.

What about Atomic? CoreOS?

*Homogeneous CPUs*

"All hosts within a cluster must be homogenous. The CPUs must be of the 
same type, count, and feature flags"
This appears to be an attempt to add some flesh to the definition of 
  What does type mean - AMD vs Intel? Can you really not use an Athlon 
in the same cluster as a Phenom?

Count of what? CPUs?

Surely not all feature flags matter?

What is the real restriction?

When you deploy CloudStack, the hypervisor host must not have any VMs 
already running. These will be destroy by CloudStack

Might be better expressed as
When you deploy CloudStack, any VMs already running on the hypervisor 
host will be destroyed by CloudStack.

*Configure CPU model for KVM guest (Optional)*

By default, the CPU model of KVM instance is likely QEMU Virtual CPU 
version x.x.x with least CPU features exposed.

likely??? What does this mean?

*CentOS 7 uses Firewalld**

The section on opening ports in the firewall uses iptables which is no 
longer used in CentOS 7*
