Executing management tasks on RHEV servers

You manage a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) environment by adding a host server running RHEV Manager to BMC Server Automation . You can then browse the contents of the RHEV Manager server object type, and perform a variety of management tasks, such as creating, modifying, and deleting a domain. 

To execute management tasks on a RHEV Manager server

  1. In the Servers folder, navigate to the server running RHEV Manager and expand the Live node.
  2. Expand the RHEV Manager server object type and then expand the Virtual Machines node. This node shows all virtual machines configured within the RHEV Manager server. The icons indicate the status of the virtual machine.
