Re: [ovirt-users] WARN VdsBroker

2018-04-14 Thread Vrgotic, Marko
Dear Roy,

Thank you. I noticed after completing the upgrade of the engine, and update of 
the hypervisors, that one hypervisor could not enter Maintenance state, as it 
was showing to be still hosting one VM. However, I could not find which one, 
the list showing hypervisor VMs was empty.
I was able to connect the relation between WARN message and “invisible” VM, and 
its solved now.

I will definitely look more into vdsm, as it is new to me, thank you, this 
information is valuable.

I think we can close this case.

Kind regards,
Marko Vrgotic

Every VDSM(host) reports the application list per installed vm, every time the 
engine asks for the vm statistics. The list probably contains an illegal value 
or we fail to convert it , anyhow it doesn't interfere with the rest of the 
monitoring process.  Please share the output of this command from one of your 
hosts that have running vms:
vdsm-client Host getAllVmStats

Hi,

the vnc device is there by default (I copied it out of my own hosted
engine instance), I do not know why it was missing in your case.

 Hi,

 the serial console will show output if the kernel knows to use it.

 The VNC approach is also possible and I believe we already have a
 graphical device present. What you are looking for is probably this
 (VNC method is described there):

        Hey Guy's,

        If I'm looking to setup the oVirt engine in an HA

VM's (non

        I want to setup two to four active oVirt engine
instances
        elsewhere and handle the HA via something like
haproxy /
        keepalived to keep the entire experience seamless
to the user.


    You will need to set up the oVirt engine service as
well as the PG
    database (and ovirt-engine-dwhd service and any other
service we
    run next to the engine) as highly available module.
    In pacemaker[1], for example.
    You'll need to ensure configuration is also sync'ed
between nodes,
    etc.
    Y.


    So already have one ovirt engine setup separately on a vm that
    manages two remote physical hosts.  So familiar with the
single host
    approach which I would simply replicate.  At least that’s
the idea
    anyway.  Could you please expand a bit on the highly available
    module and  syncing the config between hosts?


That's a different strategy, which is also legit - you treat
this VM as a highly available resource. Now you do not need to
sync the config - just the VM disk and config.


I think there's a postgres component too and if oVirt engine keeps
all it's date on the postgres tables, then synchronizing this
piece might be all I need?  I'm not sure how the separate oVirt
engines sitting on various separate physical hosts keep their
settings in sync about the rest of the physicals in an oVirt
environment. (Assume we may have 100 oVirt physicals for example.)


There's more than just the database, although it contains 99% of what 
you need. See the content of the result of 'engine-backup' command.
I think you might be somewhat confusing between the number of oVirt 
hypervisors (we support hundreds) and the Engine - the management, 
which is single - and with hosted-engine, it's a single, but highly 
available virtual machine - that can run on one of several (I suggest 
3-8) of those hypervisors.

Y.


Yah, still very new to much of this.  Thank you again.

I’ll take that away and do some reading.

Cheers,
Tom



"that can run on one of several (I suggest 3-8) of those hypervisors."
To clarify.  So if I have 3-8 copies of the oVirt Engine in a 
self-hosted config, only one can run at any one time?  Is this correct?


Cheers,
Tom




Perhaps something like

https://www.unixarena.com/2015/12/rhel-7-pacemaker-configuring-ha-kvm-guest.html


.

But if you are already doing that, I'm not sure why you'd
prefer this over hosted-engine setup.


I'm comparing both options.  I really don't want to ask too many
specific until I have the chance to read into the details of both.

Y.


Cheers,
Tom

        From what I've seen in oVirt, that seems to be

Re: [ovirt-users] vdsm hook noipspoof on interface level

Thanks,

this was the last part into my puzzle, HOST INTERFACE params.

The example hook provided in
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1366905#c8,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=1232201 looks good, but
it seems to set the IP param on all interfaces too, regardless on
which interface the NIC PARAM is set.

The hooks should be called per vNIC, as reading the
https://www.ovirt.org/documentation/admin-guide/appe-VDSM_and_Hooks/#the
- -vdsm-hook-domain-xml-object,
the one/several of thees hooks should be used or maybe I'm wrong ;(
