Umvirt Fedora Live Spiced VP

Umvirt Fedora Live Spiced VP - is unofficial expeimental set of Live-disks for creating Fedora based QEMU/KVM virtualization nodes & clients. Main diference from oVirt & Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) is experimental usage (not production purposes).

If features become not enough for you, you can create your own set of disks from sources.

For using virtualization in production purposes we recommend you to use Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV).

Use cases


Server can be used for:

  • launching & connection to virtual machines
  • testing hardware for virtualization features
  • checking Fedora KVM/QEMU hypervisor
  • performing P2V and V2V migration with dd
  • QEMU/KVM virtualization node deployment without internet connection

Console server contain:

  • QEMU/KVM hypervisor
  • SSH-server,
  • Libvirt-server
  • LVM
  • Open iSCSI-client
  • NFS-client
  • Midnight Commander

X Server contain all components of console server and some of GUI frontends

  • virt-manager
  • gnome-boxes
  • gparted


Client can be used for:

  • Remote access to virtual machines thru SPICE, VNC, SSH, RDP protocols
  • QEMU/KVM virtualization client deployment without internet connection


There are some notes that you should keep in mind.

Zero L10N (localization)

There is no localization in order to reduce Live-disk usage. Localization can be performed after installation

Zero security

On disks firewall & SElinux are disabled to easy user experiments with virtualization
