Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization supports SPICE (Simple Protocol for Independent Computing
Environments) — an adaptive remote rendering protocol able to deliver an end user experience comparable to that of physical desktop. I got the solution ! Some error is happened and I solved it.
The procedure is too long and there is necessary a Windows Server (recommended 2008).

1. Install & configure of Windows Server 2008 and
2. Install RHEVM (Manager)
NOTE: When install, be careful to select the following
3. Web Admin
4. Web Portal
5. Database
6. Service
7. User Portal
8. Select RHEV Domain and User
9. Supply Net Console Point
10. Configure DNS Server
11. Connect to Domain Controller / Join an Active Directory
12 Add Components (.net Framework 3)
13 After installation completed there will Manager Interface
14 Install RHEV Hypervisor
15. Now connect to Manager
16. After the complecation of the above, it is necessary to install Hypervisor to local storage
17. Add Host to Manager interface and activate it

Now the 2nd part…. how to set up Storage
Add NFS Storage and add FCP Storage (for SAN etc, but u may use other like NAS)
I used here NAS….
Remember, to connect virtual comps with spice via the Portal, the plugin for internet explorer is only compatible with 32 bit IE 7/8. When install Windows Server 2008 it is necessary for .net Framework, IIS, Winscp or Putty.

Hope it helps to the some extent !

    Could you please post the solution ? It would be nice if you can at least write a summarized guide that could help others looking for an answer to the same question in the future.

    The summary of RHEV.... 1. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor: It is a standalone, high-performance and secure hypervisor based on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux kernel. It is for Storage purpose. 2. Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager: For Directory Services. A centralized management console with a comprehensive set of management tools that helps to administrators to use to create, monitor, and maintain their virtual desktops. 3. An Web Browser: Which end-users can log into their virtual desktops. 4. SPICE: End-user desktop runs inside a virtual machine on a server in the data center, and the user connects to it from a stateless thin-client using a remote rendering technology called "SPICE". Only one piece of monitor, a keyboard and a mouse is required to open browser. OR Any thin client that supports a browser and RDP. But it is expensive ! Thanks
