KVM is a robust virtualization technology, strongly supported by Red Hat and easily scaled up to commercial levels of use on CentOS or RHEL. These notes are aimed at generic installation of CentOS 6 or RHEL 6 for such servers, aimed specifically at TUSK 4 or OpenTUSK.

Determine the Server Network Configuration First
Configuring KVM bridges, especially with pair bonding is a manual process. See the child pages:
If your environment uses tagged VLAN's, see:
- Configure Pair Bonding, VLANs, and Bridges for KVM HypervisorFor tagged VLAN's as well: Configure Pair Bonding, VLANs,
Note that taged VLAN's are not suggested: if you need multiple VLAN's, it's sually safer and more reliable to install additional network ports and use pairs of network ports for individual VLAN's.
For normal KVM hypervisor environments, see:
Install KVM Software
Critical software for running KVM is in the kickstart file, but for manual OS installations needs to be installed by hand. Run these commands to install them.
