    Your document seems to describe a natural progression from the tools I’ve become familiar with under Fedora 14. $job has taken dipped its toes into RHEV 2.X and it looks radically different – a dont-let-anything-but-the-management-interface-touch-me configuration of the hypervising host with GUI built clients. What is the relationship between the two?

      RHEV 3.x uses libvirt & some virt tools, with plans to use more in future. But even so you won’t be able to just log in to the node and start running virt-* commands directly. There’s no management tool that could manage guests sanely while allowing local users to also make random changes.
