  1. Hello Team,

    I installed RHEVH4.0 on a virtual machine using Oracle VM Virtual Box. The installation was successful but I am not sure how to get the hypervisor admin console window and how can I register the hypervisor under my RHEVM.

    Can someone please help me on this?

    Thanks,
    Pramod
