When you added the host, did you provide a password or a ssh public key?

 Hi Nir,

 I have tried approving the host after executing setenforce 0 on the host.

 This time the error in the Management Events says - Installation Failed.
 Unable to Parse the Host key.

 What is causing this?

 Thanks for your help.

  Hi Meital,
 
  There isn't any logs in the folder - /var/log/ovirt-engine/host-deploy
 
  When I tried to ssh from the Engine to the Host I get the error message -
  Read from socket failed: Connection reset by peer .
 
  service sshd status in the Host shows - fatal: Write permission denied.

 Being able to login to the host using ssh is required for installing
 a host, and required for soft-fencing feature. You should fix your host
 configuration.

 One direction I would check is selinux issues. Try to disabe selinux and
 check
 if the login issue is fixed, and check /var/log/messages for selinux warnings
 during the login.

 See
 https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Security-Enhanced_Linux/sect-Security-Enhanced_Linux-Working_with_SELinux-Enabling_and_Disabling_SELinux.html

 
  Please find the screenshots.
 
  Appreiciate your inputs.
 
  Thank You.

Re: [Users] Unable to Remove Template, if VM exists.

2014-02-19 Thread Dafna Ron
As long as the vm is linked to the template (which means you created the 
vm as a thin provision copy) you cannot delete the template.

what you can do to work around this is:
1. export the vm and template to an export domain
2. delete the vm and template from the source setup only
3. try to import the vm as clone

other way is:
1. create a template from the vm
2. create a new vm from the template (make sure to create a clone and 
not a thin copy this time :))

 Enabled logging, logs attached.

According to sanlock and gluster log:

1. on the host, sanlock is failing write to the ids volume
2. on the gluster side we see failure to heal the ids file.

This looks like glusterfs issue, and should be handled by glusterfs folks.

You probably should configure sanlock log level back to the default by 
commenting
out the configuration I suggested in the previous mail.

According to gluster configuration in this log, this looks like 2 replicas with 
auto quorum.
This setup is not recommended because both machines must be up all the time. 
When one machine is down, your entire storage is down.

Check this post explaining this issue:

 Subject: [Users] Nodes lose storage at random
 
 Hi All,
 
 We're seeing some weird issues in our ovirt setup. We have 4 nodes connected
 and an NFS (v3) filestore (FreeBSD/ZFS).
 
 Once in a while, it seems at random, a node loses their connection to
 storage, recovers it a minute later. The other nodes usually don't lose
 their storage at that moment. Just one, or two at a time.
 
 We've setup extra tooling to verify the storage performance at those moments
 and the availability for other systems. It's always online, just the nodes
 don't think so.

In the logs, we see that vdsm was restarted:
MainThread::DEBUG::2014-02-18 10:48:35,809::vdsm::45::vds::(sigtermHandler) 
Received signal 15

But we don't know why it happened.

Please attach also /var/log/messages and /var/log/sanlock.log around the time 
that
vdsm was restarted.

Thanks,
Nir

I see no issue using ovirt to manage standalone hosts with their local

network isn't a factor in this case.
how many spindles on the host? what is the load on the disks you see at 
host level? which vdisk type are you using (ide/virtio-block/virtio-scsi)?

 Looks really nice! Is the background canvas vectorized? Isn´t it going
 to become rather slow loading such a big picture otherwise... And how is
 it going to handle scaling of browser windows? How´d it look on smaller
 resolutions e.g 960x640?

It's not vectorized. It's a PNG, size is 248.0 kB ... which isn't horrible. 
After the first load, it'll be stored in browser cache.

It's set to scale in such a way that the aspect ratio is maintained. It uses 
the CSS3 property background-size to achieve this. I think it looks pretty 
perfect at any resolution.

Here's the full CSS for it:

.obrand_loginPageBackground {
background-image: url(images/ovirt_bg.png);
background-size: 100% auto;
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-color: #1d2226;
position: absolute;
bottom: 0;
left: 0;
right: 0;
top: 0;
}

  Subject: [Users] Nodes lose storage at random
 
  Hi All,
 
  We're seeing some weird issues in our ovirt setup. We have 4 nodes
 connected
  and an NFS (v3) filestore (FreeBSD/ZFS).
 
  Once in a while, it seems at random, a node loses their connection to
  storage, recovers it a minute later. The other nodes usually don't lose
  their storage at that moment. Just one, or two at a time.
 
  We've setup extra tooling to verify the storage performance at those
 moments
  and the availability for other systems. It's always online, just the
 nodes
  don't think so.

 In the logs, we see that vdsm was restarted:
 MainThread::DEBUG::2014-02-18
 10:48:35,809::vdsm::45::vds::(sigtermHandler) Received signal 15

 But we don't know why it happened.

 Please attach also /var/log/messages and /var/log/sanlock.log around the
 time that
 vdsm was restarted.

 Thanks,
 Nir

Re: [Users] Storage Performance Issue !

2014-02-19 Thread Sven Kieske
Just as a quick shot:

You really may want to check which IO scheduler runs inside the
vm. you probably want deadline or noop instead of CFQ, which
can have a huge performance impact inside the vms.

you can check the default scheduler with:
dmesg | grep scheduler
you should get an output similar to this:
[0.841989] io scheduler noop registered
[0.841990] io scheduler deadline registered (default)
[0.842028] io scheduler cfq registered

Yupp, just checking, since it´s not made to tile like a parallax, I was
just curious if you had some special trick up your sleave.

And maybe I´m just nit-picking here, but I made a quick test, just to
demonstrate what I would percieve as a problem of having one big picture
as background.

obrand.html:
html
  head
link rel=stylesheet href=obrand.css /
  /head
  body class=obrand_loginPageBackground/body
/html

obrand.css:
.obrand_loginPageBackground {
background-image: url(ovirt_bg.png);
background-size: 100% auto;
background-repeat: repeat-x;
background-color: #1d2226;
position: absolute;
bottom: 0;
left: 0;
right: 0;
top: 0;
}

I attached a snapshot of how scaling your browser window in the wrong
way breaks it´s aspect ratio and how that´s just handled by
background-color in a rather...boring way. Of course scaling the
window _that_ small is ridiculous, it´s just to demonstrate the aspect
issue that would be for smartphones e.g, on this welcome screen.

So my concern here is most of all about the aspect ratio issues involved
with having just one big picture as a background. Most sites I´ve seen
have either just code, a lot of small pics, parallaxing ones, or one
insanely big picture, talking Ultra-HD 4k big, just to be absolutely
sure it´s not going to scale in this unwanted way.

Am I wrong?

Re: [Users] Asking for advice on hosted engine

2014-02-19 Thread Giorgio Bersano
2014-02-18 23:25 GMT+01:00 Ted Miller tmil...@hcjb.org:

 Giorgio,

 Gluster on two hosts only is not a good idea.  Installed for high
 reliability (quorum activated), gluster requires that 50% of the nodes be
 working before anything can be written.  When you have only two nodes, that
 means both nodes must be up before anything can happen.

 You can turn off quorum, but then you are almost guaranteeing yourself a
 split-brain headache the first time communication between the two hosts is
 interrupted, even briefly (been there, done that). Ovirt is constantly
 writing to the storage, so if they are not communicating you WILL get
 different things written to the same files in both servers, especially the
 sanlock files.  This is called split-brain, and it will give you a splitting
 headache.

 For replicated gluster to work well, you need a minimum of three gluster
 nodes in replica mode.  Two nodes is a recipe for unhappiness.  It is either
 low-availability (quorum on) or a split-brain waiting to spring on you
 (quorum off).  You don't want either one.

Hi Ted,
thank you for your precious suggestion.

I was already aware of these two problems.
This setup works if I leave quorum off.
I didn't fear split-brain because - in theory - as the communication
path between the two hosts is fully redundant, it can't happen:
multiple interfaces on different nics connected to multiple switches
having redundant power supply.

Moreover, I'm using this setup exclusively as a storage backend for
the engine VM, nothing else. So - in theory - there is a single
VM/host writing at a time. Maybe not exactly this way during the
migration of the HostedEngine VM from one host to another. Maybe in
that transition there are concurrent write operations from the two
hosts. But usually not.
Now sanlock worries me more. I wasn't considering how sanlock works
(to be honest, I was totally unaware of its operating mode). Maybe
this could be the most probable cause of conflicts.

 Figure out how to use some storage on some third computer to provide a third
 gluster node.  That way only two of the three have to be working for things
 to keep working.

 Ted Miller
 Elkhart, IN


In the beginning I tought of having replication on three (or four)
bricks, for other reasons.
But then I was worried about the performance of a system where every
write operation has to be replicated on more than another single
brick. This was just an hypotesis by me. Do you have any figure about
write performance in this situation? I have found none (probably my
fault).

Anyway thank you very much for your suggestion, I think I'll go down your way.
Better safe than sorry.

Best regards,
Giorgio.

 Just as a quick shot:

 You really may want to check which IO scheduler runs inside the
 vm. you probably want deadline or noop instead of CFQ, which
 can have a huge performance impact inside the vms.

BTW: actually I'm already doing it (setting scheduler as deadline) at
hypervisor level for my oVirt hosts, even if it seems to me it is not
the default...
What do you think about it? This way a single process (aka vm) cannot
have such huge performance impact and you have nothing to do at VM
level...
Even in recent fedora (19) I see some situations where cfq is
suboptimal in case of heavy I/O operations...

Re: [Users] API read-only access / roles

2014-02-19 Thread Sven Kieske
Hi,

reiterating on this somewhat old mail:

Is there a read only user integrated in 3.4?

Because it's a huge overhead to install somewhere
e.g. a freeipa server just to get read only access.

Re: [Users] API read-only access / roles

2014-02-19 Thread Sven Kieske
I just looked into my test vm with the 3.4 beta
and I can't see such an user there.

I created an RFE at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1067036


I really hope this can get included in 3.4 (I know it's late)
as it should be a very very minor change at engine-setup.

Thanks

Re: [Users] Ovirt 3.3.2 Cannot attach POSIX (gluster) storage domain

2014-02-19 Thread Steve Dainard
Hi Nir,

I have a thread open on the gluster side about heal-failed operations, so
I'll wait for a response on that side.

Agreed on two node quorum, I'm waiting for a 3rd node right now :) But in
the meantime or for anyone who reads this thread, if you only have 2
storage nodes you have to weigh the risks of 2 nodes in quorum ensuring
storage consistency, or 2 nodes no quorum with an extra shot at uptime.

  Enabled logging, logs attached.

 According to sanlock and gluster log:

 1. on the host, sanlock is failing write to the ids volume
 2. on the gluster side we see failure to heal the ids file.

 This looks like glusterfs issue, and should be handled by glusterfs folks.

 You probably should configure sanlock log level back to the default by
 commenting
 out the configuration I suggested in the previous mail.

 According to gluster configuration in this log, this looks like 2 replicas
 with auto quorum.
 This setup is not recommended because both machines must be up all the
 time.
 When one machine is down, your entire storage is down.

 Check this post explaining this issue:

Re: [Users] SD Disk's Logical Volume not visible/activated on some nodes

Hello,

 Subject: [Users] SD Disk's Logical Volume not visible/activated on some nodes

 Hello,

 I have ovirt 3.3 installed on on FC 19 hosts with vdsm 4.13.3-2.fc19.
 
 Which version of ovirt 3.3 is this? (3.3.2? 3.3.3?)

ovirt-engine is 3.3.2-1.fc19

 One of the hosts (host1) is engine + node + SPM and the other host2 is
 just a node. I have an iSCSI storage domain configured and accessible
 from both nodes.

 When creating a new disk in the SD, the underlying logical volume gets
 properly created (seen in vgdisplay output on host1), but doesn't seem
 to be automatically picked by host2.
 
 How do you know it is not seen on host2?

It's not present in the output of vgdisplay -v nor vgs.

 
 Consequently, when creating/booting
 a VM with the said disk attached, the VM fails to start on host2,
 because host2 can't see the LV. Similarly, if the VM is started on
 host1, it fails to migrate to host2. Extract from host2 log is in the
 end. The LV in question is 6b35673e-7062-4716-a6c8-d5bf72fe3280.

 As far as I could track quickly the vdsm code, there is only call to lvs
 and not to lvscan or lvchange so the host2 LVM doesn't fully refresh.
 The only workaround so far has been to restart VDSM on host2, which
 makes it refresh all LVM data properly.

 When is host2 supposed to pick up any newly created LVs in the SD VG?
 Any suggestions where the problem might be?
 
 When you create a new lv on the shared storage, the new lv should be
 visible on the other host. Lets start by verifying that you do see
 the new lv after a disk was created. 
 
 Try this:
 
 1. Create a new disk, and check the disk uuid in the engine ui
 2. On another machine, run this command:
 
 lvs -o vg_name,lv_name,tags
 
 You can identify the new lv using tags, which should contain the new disk 
 uuid.
 
 If you don't see the new lv from the other host, please provide 
 /var/log/messages
 and /var/log/sanlock.log.

Just tried that. The disk is not visible on the non-SPM node.

On the SPM node (where the LV is visible in vgs output):

Re: [Users] Live migration of VM's occasionally fails

2014-02-19 Thread Dafna Ron

Thanks Steve!
I am still perplexed how come one out of two identical vm's would fail 
migration... logic states that they should both fail.


On 02/19/2014 06:29 PM, Steve Dainard wrote:
I added another vlan on both hosts, and designated it a migration 
network. Still the same issue, failed to migrate one of the two VM's.


I then deleted a failed posix domain on another gluster volume with 
some heal tasks pending, with no hosts attached to it, and the VM's 
migrated successfully. Perhaps gluster isn't passing storage errors up 
properly for non-dependent volumes. Anyways this is solved for now, 
just wanted this here for posterity.

I see some heal-failed errors in gluster, but seeing as the
storage is exposed via NFS I'm surprised to think this might be
the issue. I'm working on fixing those files now, I'll update if I
make any progress.

Elad, can you please try to reproduce this?
gluster storage - at least two vm's server type created from
template as thin provision (it's clone copy).
after create run and migrate all vm's from one host to the
second host.
I think it would be a locking issue.

Steve, can you please also check the sanlock log in the second
host + look if there are any errors in the gluster logs (on
both hosts)?

[Users] Help required: Selinux disable for ovirt iso image

2014-02-19 Thread David Smith
I apologize if this comes off a little brusque, but there's really a lot of
random information out there right now, to the point where i've seen it
confuse not only myself but other new installers. Based on the problems I
still have, I have a suggestion, and I also need some help.  Again, some of
this may come off as a bit of a TLDR Rant but if ovirt is to become
popular, I believe my experience as a hardware engineer, software/hardware
QA director/manager/engineer, may be valuable to this project.

Two things keep me from getting this system working for me in a useful
manner:
#1, and the most important blocker: Disabling or fixing selinux, using
ovirt-node-iso-3.0.3-1.1.vdsm.fc19.iso.

#2, getting raritan pdu support

For issue #1: I've had a lot of people say disable selinux or fix
selinux all over this user list and in recent replies. This really isn't
fully helpful information. Even stating edit the /etc/selinux/config or
use the kernel boot command selinux=0 or read some other doc on the
internet. These all apply to full fledged releases, not to the ovirt iso
image. The main issue is that SSHD is not being allowed through selinux by
default on this image.  The right thing to do would be to fix the image and
re-release it, and DELETE the broken one that is currently available.
However a simple doc explaining how to persist the selinux disable or fix
the SSHD problem with selinux would be the easiest solution.
Others ran me down the path of edit the selinux file and persist it which
didn't work, but gave no productive help on how to make it permanent.
Equally I've been told to edit the grub config and add selinux=0 to the
kernel, however after attempting this, adding it manually at the grub boot
causes the system not to boot, and I haven't found the *right* grub.cfg
file to edit and persist to keep the changes.

For issue #2: I've hacked up some of the fence-agents scripts and am in the
process of attempting to figure out how to compile/set up my own local copy
to verify the raritan changes. Ideally the fence-agents folks would add a
generic support portion, which I may actually do myself as well, allowing
*any* PDU with at least the usual login/password/command/logout sequence to
be used. So you see, I'm not totally useless, I'm helping here.

Next suggestions:
A) Compatibility list
B) Cleanup of old project crap

For A)
For each release, I suggest there be a spreadsheet or simple document that
shows which ovirt ISO images are compatible with which manager versions.
There could be a wiki where people can add references to bug #s that have
been found and links to their solutions. Right now there are ancient docs
all over google searches that send people down paths of days of turmoil to
no avail.

For B)
When iso images or other releases are superseded because of blocking,
non-operable bugs, they should either be resolved and re-released or a
clear path to making them function be documented.  Once a re-release is
done, the old images should be wiped out or moved to a clearly marked
deprecated folder.

Thats my 100 cents worth, I really do appreciate the work and effort that
goes into this project, it appears to be a wonderful one, I hope to make
good use of it, but the initial learning curve is a real deal breaker I'm
sure for many others, especially not those willing and able to spend the
time hacking at it like I have for the past week.

Thanks!

side note ,reinstalling the nodes to resolve the selinux issue really isn't
a great proposition, its time consuming, an after-the-fact method of
editing the grub line and adding selinux=0 or enforcing=0 whichever it may
be would be ideal.

I managed to dig,dig dig and have finally resolved issue #1 without

steps
1.  put host in maintenance mode
2, log in to host and:
2a. mount -o,rw,remount /run/initramfs/live

2b. edit /run/initramfs/live/grub2/grub.cfg and add selinux=0 to the

2c. reboot the host

3. log in and try getenforce - selinux says disabled.

iirc, you need an ESX currently.
Some of us are stuck without a way to try out ovirt because of this.  ESX is 
not the only platform that people run VMWare on.  I am trying to bring over 
VMs from an old VMWare Server setup on Centos 5.  Works fine, but there is no 
migration path.  Other people may have VMs on VMWare Workstation or other, 
older products.  We just get told to go fly a kite?


If the only choice is to bring up a full-blown, working ESX instance, I may 
bring up ESXi and stay there.

  Yes, that's a valid point (however it _should_ be set to 'Guest Agent' by
  default).
 
  To sum it up, SSO should happen (on the engine side) if all these
  conditions are true:
  - user is connecting via userportal (not webadmin),
  - guest agent presence is reported to engine,
  - state of VM is strictly Up
  - VM has SSO method set to Guest agent (Itamar's mail).
 
  If these conditions are fulfilled and SSO still doesn't work, there must
  be something wrong with the engine (or with reporting GA presence).
 
  Also VmLogon command should print some information to engine's log -
  could you take a look?

  Hi,
 
  Can someone share me sample java code for assigning IP address for VM on
 eth0
  through Java SDK via CloudInit ?
 

 Hi Tejesh,

 I've attached a sample code that sends the required request (as the output
 is demonstrated in debug mode).
 Note that the code is jdk-7 compliant.
 I haven't configured cloud-init and haven't tested it end-to-end.
 Please try to test it on your environment and provide a feedback for it.

 Thanks,
 Moti

  Something Like this but in Java:
  network_configuration
   nics
 nic
   nameeth0/name
   boot_protocolSTATIC/boot_protocol

   Nothing in engine.log about VmLogon nor Guest agent reportion to

   Is there another way to know if the agent is correctly reporting

   Yes, that's a valid point (however it _should_ be set to 'Guest
Agent' by default).
  
   To sum it up, SSO should happen (on the engine side) if all
these conditions are true:
   - user is connecting via userportal (not webadmin),
   - guest agent presence is reported to engine,
   - state of VM is strictly Up
   - VM has SSO method set to Guest agent (Itamar's mail).
  
   If these conditions are fulfilled and SSO still doesn't work,
there must be something wrong with the engine (or with reporting GA
presence).
  
   Also VmLogon command should print some information to engine's
log - could you take a look?
  
   Cheers,
   Franta.

Hi, Maurice,
Have you tried virt-convert to convert vmx image to virt-image(raw or qcow2) 
format?
Which support off-line conversion without a running ESX server

Forgive my noobness, but are you telling me that I can convert an ESX image 
without the existence of a running ESX server? If someone gave me an ESX image 
on a DVD or hard drive I could then use virt-v2v to convert it?

Yes.
So:

VMware non-ESX - ESX, using VMware's tool, then ESX - RHEV using virt-v2v

no?

If this is viable, it's easy to understand why nobody wants to put effort into 
supporting a bevy of VMware VM formats, when there's a tool already available 
to convert to one and they can focus on it.

My recollection is that VMware provides a converter to change your
VMware non-ESX VMs into ESX format.
Do you have to buy ESX to gain access to it?

can you comment on the gaps from virt-v2v which does this today
(in the bug as well).

thanks,
 Itamar


iirc, you need an ESX currently.

Some of us are stuck without a way to try out ovirt because of this.
ESX is not the only platform that people run VMWare on.  I am trying
to bring over VMs from an old VMWare Server setup on Centos 5.  Works
fine, but there is no migration path.  Other people may have VMs on
VMWare Workstation or other, older products.  We just get told to go
fly a

kite?

If the only choice is to bring up a full-blown, working ESX instance,
I may bring up ESXi and stay there.
