These are the main packages that are needed to deploy a virtualized Openshift Management cluster.

sudo dnf install dnsmasq radvd vim golang podman bind-utils net-tools httpd-tools tree htop strace tmux -y

Additionally, you need to enable and start the Podman service using the following command:

systemctl enable --now podman


We will utilize Kcli to deploy the Openshift Management cluster and various other virtualized components. To do so, you'll need to install and configure the hypervisor using the following commands:

sudo yum -y install libvirt libvirt-daemon-driver-qemu qemu-kvm
sudo usermod -aG qemu,libvirt $(id -un)
sudo newgrp libvirt
sudo systemctl enable --now libvirtd
sudo dnf -y copr enable karmab/kcli
sudo dnf -y install kcli
sudo kcli create pool -p /var/lib/libvirt/images default
kcli create host kvm -H local
sudo setfacl -m u:$(id -un):rwx /var/lib/libvirt/images
kcli create network  -c default
