[ovirt-users] Replace Engine Self-Signed Certificate

2019-05-15 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

I'm trying to replace the self-signed certificate in the engine.

I updated the four files listed here

http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-management/features/infra/pki/

But on restarting Apache and logging in I get the following error,
"sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed:
sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find
valid certification path to requested target"

What am I missing?

Thanks,

Alan

[ovirt-users] oVirt 3.6.4 / PXE guest boot issues

2019-05-15 Thread Alan Griffiths
A explanation/work-around for this issue raised back in April.

It seems that if, in UCS, you configure a vNIC with a single native VLAN it
will still add an 802.1q header with tag 0 - possibly to do with QoS. And
this extra header prevents iPXE from parsing the DHCP response.

The solution for me was to present all VLANs on a single trunked vNIC to
the blade and configure VLAN tagging as per normal. The result is the tags
are stripped off the packets before being passed to the VM and DHCP now
works.

The same issue applies to VM-FEX as packets coming off the VF will have the
802.1q header. The only solution I can see here is to configure a bridged
interface for initial build of the VM and then switch to VM-FEX afterwards.

I found a discussion on the iPXE mailing list about addressing the vlan 0
issue, but I could see no agreed solution.

[ovirt-users] nfs 4.2 support

2018-04-03 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

I noticed that when mounting nfs domains in ovirt 4.1 using
auto-negotiate it settles on v4.1.

Is this due to lack of live storage migration as referenced in this bug

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1464787

Are there other known issues with 4.2 support?

Thanks,

Alan

[ovirt-users] Engine AAA LDAP startTLS Protocol Issue

2018-02-08 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

Trying to configure Engine to authenticate against OpenLDAP and I seem
to be hitting a protocol bug.

Attempts to test the login during the setup fail with

2018-02-07 12:27:37,872Z WARNING Exception: The connection reader was
unable to successfully complete TLS negotiation:
SSLException(message='Received fatal alert: protocol_version',
trace='getSSLException(Alerts.java:208) /
getSSLException(Alerts.java:154) / recvAlert(SSLSocketImpl.java:2033)
/ readRecord(SSLSocketImpl.java:1135) /
performInitialHandshake(SSLSocketImpl.java:1385) /
startHandshake(SSLSocketImpl.java:1413) /
startHandshake(SSLSocketImpl.java:1397) /
run(LDAPConnectionReader.java:301)', revision=0)

Running a packet trace I see that it's trying to negotiate with TLS
1.0, but my LDAP server only support TLS 1.2.

This looks like a regression as it works fine in 4.0.

I see the issue in both 4.1 and 4.2

4.1.9.1
4.2.0.2

Should I submit a bug?

Thanks,

Re: [ovirt-users] Why was HE Install made OVA only?

2017-11-21 Thread Alan Griffiths
I was building my own image, using Foreman, Puppet and PXE. There's a
specific partitioning schema I'm required to use in my environment and
building my own image from Kickstart is by far the easiest way to
achieve this.

I can appreciate that in most scenarios the OVA install is the
best/easiest option, but it would have been nice to keep PXE and ISO
options.

Re: [ovirt-users] ovirtmgmt network

2017-11-08 Thread Alan Griffiths
I think you would need an IP address on IF2, otherwise the HE cannot
communicate with the host.

If you have an entry in /etc/hosts that resolves the FQDN of the host
to the IP on IF2 then I think the setup script should create the
ovirtmgmt bridge there.

Re: [ovirt-users] VM remote noVNC console

2017-10-06 Thread Alan Griffiths
I have this working through an SSH tunnel, although it adds some extra steps.

1. Figure out which port your VM console is bound to (5900 + offset).
2. SSH to the hypervisor tunneling a local port to that remote console port.
3. Click on the console link in the Engine and locally save the vv file.
4. Edit the vv file; change host to localhost and port to whichever
port you configured for the local side of the tunnel.
5. Save and run the vv file with your SPICE client.

You have two minutes to connect from downloading the vv file before
the password expires.

[ovirt-users] Ovirt 4.0 and EL 7.4

2017-10-04 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

Is 4.0 supported/known to work on CentOS 7.4?

I've just tried to upgrade one of the hosts in my lab from 7.3 to 7.4
and now vdsm-network fails to start with

vdsm-tool: libvirt: XML-RPC error : authentication failed: authentication failed

To even get this far I had to exclude gluster packages as 7.4
introduces 3.8 but ovirt 4.0 repo is still on 3.7.

So, more generally. If I'm on ovirt 4.0, gluster 3.7 and EL 7.3. What
is the best ordering for getting to ovirt 4.1 and EL 7.4?

Thanks,

Alan

2017-09-15 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

Currently testing my recovery plan for HE failure.

I run a hosted engine, but in the event of some failure of the engine VM i
want to be able to quickly restore the engine to a standalone host running
independent of Ovirt (in this case a VM running on ESXi).

On a dry run I restore the backup onto the ESXi VM and run engine-setup. At
this point it fails with an error that I am not in Global Maintenance mode.

If I put the cluster into maintenance mode before performing the backup
then it works correctly. So is it necessary to do this on every backup? I
can find nothing in the documentation detailing this as a requirement?

Alternatively it seems I can manually update the ha_global_maintenance
column in the vds_statistics table before running engine-setup, but not
sure of the implications of doing this.

ovirt-4.0.6.3

Thanks,

Alan

Re: [ovirt-users] Ovirt 4.1 testing backup and restore Self-hosted Engine

2017-08-25 Thread Alan Griffiths
As I recall (a few weeks ago now) it was after restore, once the host had
been registered in the Manager. However, I was testing on 4.0, so maybe the
behaviour is slightly different in 4.1.

Can you see anything in the Engine or vdsm logs as to why it won't remove
the storage? Perhaps try removing the stale HostedEngine VM ?

I am planning to live migrate VMs. From my testing this works fine
providing cross cluster hosts can talk to each other and they share a
common migration network.

Just found this in the RHV docs. I think sections 2.8 to 2.12 cover
everything you could wish to know about SPM process. It made it clear for
me anyway. Once SPM is elected then all communication is via the storage
domain, no TCP/IP comms required.

It's my understanding that when you activate a host part of the process is
to verify that it can connect to all active storage domains. If it cannot
connect to any domain then it will refuse to go to the "up" state. In my
case the storage domains are FC so completely outside the TCP/IP stack.

[ovirt-users] Inter Cluster Traffic

2017-08-22 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

I'm in the process of building a second ovirt cluster within the default
DC. This new cluster will use the same storage domains as the original
cluster, and I will slowly migrate VMs from the old cluster to the new.

Given that the old and new cluster hosts have a firewall between them I
need to ensure that all relevant ports are open, with particular attention
to the correct operation of SPM.

Is it sufficient to open TCP ports 16514 and 54321 to achieve this?

Thanks,

Alan

Looking at vdsmd.service on one of my 4.0 hosts.

Requires=multipathd.service libvirtd.service time-sync.target \
 iscsid.service rpcbind.service supervdsmd.service sanlock.service \
 vdsm-network.service

Are all these services present and running?

Is rpcbind running? This is a dependency for vdsmd.

I've seen issues where rpcbind will not start on boot if IPv6 is disabled.
The solution for me was to rebuild the initramfs, aka "dracut -f"

Re: [ovirt-users] Ovirt adding routes

2017-06-26 Thread Alan Griffiths
Thanks for the clarification, I see now why it's not working. In the GUI
there is no gateway configured for ovirtmgmt network on my single host.
However I can't add one as the network is "in use" by the HostedEngine.
Other than adding a second host is there anyway to work around this?

[ovirt-users] Ovirt adding routes

2017-06-13 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

When installing an ovirt host I got these routes automatically added

default dev ovirtmgmt  table 2886865805  scope link
172.18.19.128/26 via 172.18.19.141 dev ovirtmgmt  table 2886865805

What is their intended purpose? It seems to be stopping packets from being
correctly routed to the local gateway.

Thanks,

[ovirt-users] KVM Import with Thin Provisioning

2017-05-26 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

I don't seem to be able create thin provision disks when importing from
KVM. Once import is complete the disk allocation policy is reported as
thin, but the actual size is in fact slightly larger than the virtual size.

For example, original qcow2 file size - 6G. Virtual size - 1024G. Imported
actual size (according to Engine GUI) 1126G.

Is this a known issue?

Running 4.0.4.

[ovirt-users] Resolving host non_responsive

2017-05-03 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

Following a short network outage a couple of HE hosts are reported as
non_responsive in the engine. Storage was not affected and the VMs continue
to run on those hosts. Is it possible to bring the hosts back under
management without disrupting the running of the VMs? Is it as simple as
confirming host has rebooted?

Thanks,

Re: [ovirt-users] Recent Install Docs?

2017-03-30 Thread Alan Griffiths
I believe that is the required setup - dedicated storage domain for HE.
It's certainly the case on 4.0, I haven't played with 4.1 yet.

For docs you can always check the RHV set, they are generally applicable to
oVirt.

[ovirt-users] Guest Agent Running unconfined on Centos 7

2017-02-10 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

I'm running ovirt-guest-agent from Centos 7 EPEL and I notice that it's
running unconfined rather than within its own domain.

I see there is a rhev_agentd_exec_t type, which I attempted to assign to
ovirt-guest-agent.py but it still starts up as unconfined. Is there a
supported process for getting ovirt-guest into its own domain? Or a reason
why it's not possible?

Thanks,

I can see it's possible to edit CPU and memory allocation of HE in the GUI,

[ovirt-users] Storage Domain High Latency

2016-10-11 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

One of my hosts is periodically reporting high latency to a storage domain
(FC). There is almost no load on the SAN so the issue must be either fault,
mis-configuration or internal ovirt issue.

Can anyone enlighten me on how ovirt/vdsm goes about calculating the
storage latency? As I'm struggling to find anything in the logs.

Thanks,

[ovirt-users] oVirt 3.6.4 / PXE guest boot issues

2016-10-04 Thread Alan Griffiths
A explanation/work-around for this issue raised back in April.

It seems that if, in UCS, you configure a vNIC with a single native VLAN it
will still add an 802.1q header with tag 0 - possibly to do with QoS. And
this extra header prevents iPXE from parsing the DHCP response.

The solution for me was to present all VLANs on a single trunked vNIC to
the blade and configure VLAN tagging as per normal. The result is the tags
are stripped off the packets before being passed to the VM and DHCP now
works.

The same issue applies to VM-FEX as packets coming off the VF will have the
802.1q header. The only solution I can see here is to configure a bridged
interface for initial build of the VM and then switch to VM-FEX afterwards.

I found a discussion on the iPXE mailing list about addressing the vlan 0
issue, but I could see no agreed solution.

[ovirt-users] Resizing Disks on Active VMs

2016-08-01 Thread Alan Griffiths
Hi,

I'm currently testing 4.0 and trying understand what the capabilities are
regards re-sizing of volumes on running VMs.

>From reading the documentation it appears that I should be able to extend a
volume on a running VM, but I find that all the fields are greyed out in
the Edit Virtual Disk dialogue box. In order to get access to the fields I
have to power down the VM.

Is this expected behavior?

I'm running 4.0.1 with a GlusterFS data store.

Hi,

I'm seeing the same PXE boot issue with 3.6.4 on Centos 7. Booting from ISO 
DHCP works fine. With PXE I can see the offer coming back from the DHCP server 
but the VM just seems to ignore it. I also tried swapping the ROMs as per 
previous post, but had no effect.
