    Its not required to remember list of all the rpm names for installing. Just install “yum groupinstall virtualization-client virtualization-platform virtualization-tools” will take care of meeting all dependencies.

    Does every new virtual machine need a new storage volume?

  3. chris h says:

    heads up, yum install virtualization\ hypervisor has qemu-kvm package not virtualization\ platform, other than that very nice tutorial. To list these groups use yum groups list hidden -v or yum groups list hidden id, followed by yum groups info virtualization-hypervisor.

    Mount your rhel 7 or centOS 7 dvd and disk dump it to a folder as an iso. Use the disk dumped iso in your number 13 above as a workaround for you so-called silly bug:

    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
    dd if=/dev/sr0 of=/rhel7.iso
