Reinstall using latest Centos7 and oVirt-4.3.10 using cockpit HCI
gluster and the 'old' NFS storage domain imported at once.

[ovirt-users] NFS import storage domain permissions error

2020-06-27 Thread Joop
rmission 
settings on the specified storage path.: 'path = /rhev/data-center/mnt/pakhuis
:_volume1_nfs_data'
2020-06-27 19:39:38,453+0200 DEBUG (jsonrpc/0) [storage.HSM] knownSDs:

(hsm:2470)
202


If I make a mistake in the path I get the mount command in the logs and
correcting for the mistake let me mount it at /mnt and then I'm able to
create files and folders using the vdsm and qemu accounts so I don't
know where that error is coming from. Had a look at the source of
vdsm/storage/* but I'm not a python programmer.
A couple of other 4.4 oVirt installs don't have this problem and I used
the same usb stick with Centos-8.2 for those as for this one. Followed
the same install instructions, same versions of packages as far as I can
see. Beats me

I'm tempted to reinstall Centos7 and oVirt4.3.10 just to see what
happens, but I'm hoping someone can point me to something that I must
have overlooked.

Joop

I noticed that when I use import VM from an Export domain I see that it
sometimes uses preallocated and sometimes thin-provisioned for the disk(s).
Don't know why and I don't think there is a pattern. Old VMs from 3.3 or
new ones from 4.2/3, its mixed.
I almost always use thin-provisioned but one or two could have been
preallocated by accident.

How do I check?

As a follow up I tried a couple of other things:
- installed CentOS-7 and oVirt 4.3.10 using HCI and same problem
(the previous install of 4.3 was a upgraded version. Don't know the
start versie)
- did some testing with copying large files into the engine gluster
volume through /rhev/datacenter using 'cp' and no problems
- used qemu-img convert with the engine gluster volume as destination
--> problems
- had a good look through lots of logfiles and stumbled across an error
about missing shard which aligned with qemu-img errors
- turned features.shard off on the volume and restarted the volume
- reran the tests with qemu-img --> no problems any more.
- reinstalled Centos8.2 + oVirt-4.0, turned off sharding before starting
the engine install
--> no problems installing, no problems importing, no problems starting
vms, sofar

I need to install another server tomorrow, so I'll do that with sharding
enabled and see if it crashes too and then get the logs some place safe.

Correction, we are using ecc and ran memtest and didn't find anything wrong.

Reinstalled the server and I have the same problem again.

Started reading up on vdsm-hooks because I could get my VM up
consistently when using bootmenu=enabled.
So wrote this small piece of code, most of it is copy pasted:

#!/usr/bin/python3
#
#
from __future__ import absolute_import

import os
import sys
import subprocess
import hooking


if hooking.tobool(os.environ.get('boot_timeout', True)):
  domxml = hooking.read_domxml()

  os = domxml.getElementsByTagName('os')[0]
  bootelem = domxml.createElement('bootmenu')
  bootelem.setAttribute('timeout', '1000')
  bootelem.setAttribute('enable', 'yes')
  os.appendChild(bootelem)

  hooking.write_domxml(domxml)
#  pretty_xml_as_string = os.toprettyxml()
#  sys.stderr.write('%s\n' % pretty_xml_as_string)

Saved it in /usr/libexec/vdsm/hooks/before_vm_start as 90_wait
Played around with the timeout but lower than 1000 (1sec) and the
problem reappears.
For the time being I'm going forward with this workaround.

And maybe change the title to something else.
I'm ok with my logs/mail being added to it. I can do it sometime today

No, but what are the chances that starting a VM by using Run directly vs
using the Boot wait menu and it hitting that bad bit each and every time?
BTW: this setup worked perfectly for over 9 months using 4.3.X.

I have had this too and saw that during the test week is was also reported.
The 'solution' was to run /usr/sbin/ovirt-hosted-engine-cleanup and let
the wizard stay where it is and afterwards click Redeploy VM and then it
will run to its conclusion. Don't know what precisely it fixes. Had a
look and couldn't find it.

Additional after testing snapshot functionality, I noted that not once I

[ovirt-users] Weird problem starting VMs in oVirt-4.4

2020-06-03 Thread Joop
Hi All,

Just had a rather new experience in that starting a VM worked but the
kernel entered grub2 rescue console due to the fact that something was
wrong with its virtio-scsi disk.
The message is Booting from Hard Disk 
error: ../../grub-core/kern/dl.c:266:invalid arch-independent ELF maginc.
entering rescue mode...

Doing a CTRL-ALT-Del through the spice console let the VM boot
correctly. Shutting it down and repeating the procedure I get a disk
problem everytime. Weird thing is if I activate the BootMenu and then
straight away start the VM all is OK.
I don't see any ERROR messages in either vdsm.log, engine.log

If I would have to guess it looks like the disk image isn't connected
yet when the VM boots but thats weird isn't it?

Regards,

Joop

[ovirt-users] Import VM from export domain using oVirt-4.4

2020-06-03 Thread Joop
Hi All,

I'm testing a shiny new oVirt-4.4.02, selfhosted engine HCI gluster, and
found a problem when importing my VMs from an export domain.
Import is OK but can't start the VM due to the fact that the BIOS is set
to Legacy. Manually setting the BIOS type to Cluster Default, through VM
properties, will let the VM start.
I couldn't find anything about it in the ReleaseNotes

As a side note: using gluster still doesn't install
gluster-ansible-roles and glusterfs-server and vdsm-gluster or checks
for its existance. See also another user who reported problems due to
the latter not being installed, had the same experience.

Regards,

Joop

I hate it when I have to say: me too.

BUT during test week I think Simone had the same problem and did a
/usr/sbin/ovirt-hosted-engine-cleanup?? and then you can retry the deply
from the wizard.
To recapitulate: Follow the HCI cockpit wizard until you get the error
then open a terminal and cleanup and then retry the deployment. It will
succeed. Did this yesterday and it worked.
Even tried to run cleanup before starting the wizard but thats a no success.

I followed the same procedure as for the beta releases and have come
across a new problem.
Following the HCI setup using cockit in step 3 of deplying the VM
ansible reports an error about missing /etc/pki/CA/cacert.pem which
indeed does not exist.
Can't find where this is supposed to come from and before creating my
own and trying the install again I would like to know if I'm doing
something wrong.
In essence I installed Centos-8.1 from the link provided in the email.

I successfully installed a HCI setup using glusterfs using this beta4. I
encountered the save problem as Gianluca but his workaround worked for
me too.

I have just completed a HCI setup with 4.4beta4, thanks Gianluca for you
character by character workaround for step 1 of that wizard, and don't
have the cpu flags problem.
The wizard completed successfully and I now have a working 4.4beta4
engine using glusterfs, :-)
output of lscpu:
CPU family:6
Model: 85
Model name:Intel(R) Xeon(R) Silver 4114 CPU @ 2.20GHz
Stepping:  4

And I used Pass-Through Host CPU for the VM that is acting as the next
level host and thus runs the hosted-engine.

Thanks for the message. Looking through the logs I saw references to the
blocksize but since that is contained in the ansible scripts which get
downloaded to the host I gave up finding the source versions to try to
see it I could get it going beyond that failing step.

Anyway, thanks for informing me,

Yes, thats the way I do it.
If you add the exports using the UI you don't get the right lines in
/etc/exports but if you enable ssh access you can edit the file and than do:
mkdir -p /volume1/ovirt/{he|data}
chown -R 36:36 /volume1/ovirt
install oVirt using the nfs path your.nas:/volume1/ovirt/he

That should work.

Followed the instructions and it does work :-)

But I also tested if I could setup a hosted engine but that fails.
Should that work too but did I make a mistake or is that part not ready yet?

If it should work I can try again and upload logs if needed.

So I did the same routine today and followed this piece of documentation:
https://www.ovirt.org/download/ --> Install oVirt with Cockpit
Used a std Centos minimal install, used a fixed IP address with a DNS A
record and a PTR record, made one for the engine too!!, ran yum update,
reboot
Add the ovirt-release43 repo
sudo yum install cockpit cockpit-ovirt-dashboard -y
sudo yum install glusterfs-server -y # this seemed to miss but includes
the firewalld glusterfs service name.!
sudo systemctl enable --now cockpit.socket
sudo firewall-cmd --add-service=cockpit
sudo firewall-cmd --add-service=cockpit --permanent
sudo yum install ansible-glusterfs-roles #??? not sure about the exact
name but use yum info *ansiblie* | grep ^Name | sort to find it. Wizard
needs them.
login into cockpit
Select the gluster HCI wizard instead of the HostedEngine one and follow
the instructions to the t, use fixed IP adresses which DO have a DNS
entry, saves you a lot of hair pulling.

Could you tell what problems you're having and what documentation you're
following?

I just did a hyperconverged hosted-engine setup on a single server using
the cockpit installer and had just 2 problems:
- firewall-cmd uses glusterfs as a service name and that isn't
installed, its in glusterfs-server rpm but that isn't installed for some
reason.
- multipath problems but that could be my problem, anyway I manually
blacklisted both my SSD gluster drives.

Going todo it tomorrow again to get a collegue to work on it so if

Disable the epel repo and just use yum install whatever

I have posted in the past a script which you might be able to use as a
starting point.
I've got a, most of the time, a single server setup using hosted-engine
for development/testing work and shutdown my server when needed.
Recently found out that using 'sanlock client shutdown -f 1 -w 1'  will
allow me to shutdown my server cleanly.
I'll dig up the script when I'm booted into CentOS instead of Windows :-)
Nudge me if I forget to post the script :-)

They can keep the legacy architecture.

The level is determined by the server with the lowest specs qua
architecture but since it is a cluster property you can add 1 or 2 new
servers in a new cluster which you could use to run the new VMs.
So if all your servers are Nehalem than you'll need at least one new server.

Guessing that it might be a firewall problem. Check what ports are open
after this fails. You can check it too, when the Engine is up you can
try to curl to your engine and see if it is reachable on 443, if not
then the healthcheck will fail.

Re: [ovirt-users] HEVM root reset?

2017-10-29 Thread Joop

On 28-10-2017 23:25, Chas Ecomm wrote:

My issue:

I’ve inherited a 4.1 hosted-engine setup. This is for a non-profit, so 
the previous consultant did what she could to save capital expense by 
using older gear and oVirt rather than VMware/Hyper-V and newer 
equipment.  For the most part it has worked quite well as I understand 
it.  This particular setup has gone from 3.5 with a standalone engine 
to 4.1 with a hosted engine, in case that matters.


The VMs hosted on the 2 clusters associated with this engine are 
currently working fine, but I am trying to get into the hosted-engine 
VM, and either there was a problem with the root password during setup 
and the hosted-engine-setup script didn’t catch it or I’ve been given 
a bad password.  The previous admin didn’t setup any alternative 
users, which is a major no-no in my book, and so I’m trying to do that 
– but I can’t login to the VM.  I can log into the portal and manage 
the hosts, storage, VMs, etc., just not the HEVM.  As I understand it, 
even if I could set aside my need for alternate users, when it comes 
time to upgrade I will need access to the HEVM, so I have to solve 
this at some point.



I assume you checked whether you have sudo rights with the standard 
user? If not you could also try to add that user to the sudo admin group 
and that way gain root rights. Both ways you need to get to boot the HE 
from an alternative boot device.
You could use qemu to boot the HE from a rescue CD and reset the 
password or add your user to the right sudo group.
I just tried that on a copy of my HE and can boot my HE with the 
following command:

qemu-system-x86_64.exe -m 1024.000 -name HE  -hda t:\HE.qcow
Making a copy made the image non-sparse but I didn't try too hard to fix 
this since I'm trying this out on a W10 PC :-)

The problem is that it is the hosted-engine itself that is blocking the
upgrade. There is only one VM running but maybe there is one of the
shutdown VMs that is blocking this. Will have a look at all of them and
save their config to see if that helps.

It might be hiding in the war file if that is used to deploy the
application (engine) on wildfly (10.x). Another thought occured, can you
use the plugin architecture to provide the extra link?

I upgraded from 4.0 to 4.1pre yesterday and had a couple of problems
that I think are of my own doing.
I'm running hosted-engine on my laptop with a NFS data domain (I know
about the deadlock possibility)
Host OS was FC23 and needed to be upped to FC24 and the engine is
running Centos-7.2 so no changes.
Updated the engine first and then updated my fedora version. That went
well except that it complained about I think vdsm needing a version that
conflicted with an existing one (libvirt-client).
After allowing the update to erase the problematic packages I ended up
with another slight problem but fixed that by deinstalling the
problematic packages and reinstalling hosted-engine. I ofcourse lost the
configuration files but they are all saved as *.rpmsave.
Finding those files and moving them back into place and reinstalling
hosted-engine-ha-setup and hosted-engine-ha fixed most of not all
problems (systemd autostarting services). Restarting my system and
everything came backup up :-)
Next up is testing all those shiny new items.

My setup is usally up in about 10min if I do nothing and if 'helping' it
I can get it up in around 6-8min. I usally don't bother and have another
cup of coffee :-)

About shutting down. I have a small script that shuts down the
ha-agent/ha-broker, then the engine and then vdsm/sanlock/nfs-server.
Search the ML for it and I can post it again if needed.
Putting the host into global maintenance and then shutting down will
work too but then you need to script --maintenance --mode=none during
startup.

I have never setup such a server but if you create the ovirtmgmt bridge
first then the deploy will leave it alone and you won't lose network
connectivity.

You need to create a storage domain first and then the storage domain
will automatically be imported into the Data Center.
That even holds true when you already have an previous storage domain.
You can't import it, you'll need to create a small dummy domain first
and then you can import an old one.

We've got around 100VMs with 175vCPUs running on 48pCPUs spread over 4
hosts. At the moment the storage layer is the limiting factor. VMs are a
mix of postgres database servers wildfly application servers with
geoserver and then some assorted infrastructure stuff and a couple of
Windows servers.

I have an idea how to get this going but you'll need to test this really
well.
You can make a replica 3 with all bricks on the same server and then
when one of your other servers are available move one brick to it and
when all is healed move the next one to it.

Now, I'll probably get publicly whipped for this idea so I'm going to

Maybe there is a another way. It involves ovirt-shell and/or a sdk
script. The idea is the create a custom property and set that to for
example, y:01 or n:02 and yes that to read that back if the host comes
up and start the vms if they have 'y' and use the number for ordering.
If reading back the properties is a problem you might be able to 'use'
the tagging feature todo something similar.

You can always create a RFE on the ovirt bugtracker.

If you have only one host then:
- have that host export a couple of nfs shares, through /etc/exports
- install hosted-engine rpms on the host
- run hosted-engine-setup, following directions, this will:
-- install the vm in one of the nfs shares
-- installs ovirt-engine INSIDE the vm
-- installs the ovirt-ha-agent and ovirt-ha-broker on your host which
will start the hosted-engine vm
- if the vm is up then you can access its webui and you'll be able to
add an additional storage domain (NFS) which will hold you other VM disks
- make sure dns info is correct, you use static ip addressing, don't use
NetworkManager

I have noticed the same behaviour but not on server hardware but on my
workstations which I use as a ovirt test setup.
One would expect that a shutdown  on a host would shut it down cleanly
but the only way to get that is to run a small script that will take
care of:
- service ovirt-ha-agent/broker stop
- shutting down engine if it runs on this host
-  service vdsmd stop
- service sanlock stop (takes quite a bit of time (~2min?))
- umount whatever is needed
- service nfs stop
- shutdown

This will poweroff my host which normally runs my hosted-engine
everytime. Sanlock seems to be indirectly the problem. wdmd(?) (watchdog
daemon) seems able to keep the host from powering off, most of the time
it will result in a reboot, or hanging at 'powering off'

I spend quite a bit of time looking into logs but have not been able to
find anything conclusive, could be my problem not knowing which log to
look at or to dig up enough info to find the root cause.

What version of oVirt did create this storage domain? and what version
are you using to import it?
I have imported NFS storage domains multiple times and didn't have
problems. oVirt-3.5 or higher should be able to import a storage domain.

I have that problem too once in a while. Restarting vdsmd will solve
your problem BUT its because vdsmd is active before your NFS is up. A
fix is to require nfs in the vdsmd service unit.

What you can do to get the logs down to a minimum is to do the following:
- put node-02 in maintenance
- on the host which is down (node-02) cd /var/log/vdsm; :>vdsm.log (this
truncates the log)
- activate node-02
- if it goes to non-operational: cp vdsm.log vdsm.log.error

This will give you a much smaller log and maybe the error will be more
visible.
You could do this on the engine too:
- cd /var/log/ovirt-engine
- :>engine.log
- activate
- cp engine.log engine.log.error

Can you provide the corresponding log file? 
I suspect that the scp failed. Do you allow root login with password on your

No problem, we were all once.

Run hosted-engine --set-maintenance -mode=none

After a couple of minutes you should get mail about engine events. 

Just curious.  What specs sre your host (s) and engine vm?

Are you sure you're dns is setup correctly. It looks like that node01 is
looking up or reverse looking up node02 and that can take a long time if
dns isn't working properly.

I tried but it looks like the email from BZ isn't arriving at my mailbox :-(
I had to renew my password and haven't gotten the link, yet. Creating a
new account with a different email domain didn't work either so I'm
gonna summarize what I did today.

It looks like that something goes wrong in
vdsm/storage/glusterVolume.py. Volname in  getVmVolumeInfo ends up with
a volumename with double underscores in it, then
svdsmProxy.glusterVolumeInfo is called which in the end calls a cli
script, by supervdsmd, which returns an empty xml document because there
is no such volume with double underscores. Running the command which is
logged in supervdsm.log confirms this too. Reducing the volname to have
only single underscores returns a correct xml object.
My guess is that this: rpath =
sdCache.produce(self.sdUUID).getRemotePath() probably should return what
the real name is that has been used to connect to the storage. In my case:
Real path entered during setup: st01:gv_ovirt_data01
What's used: st01:gv__ovirt__data01
Just doing a 's/__/_/' is a bit shortsighted but would work for me since
I don't use '/' when entering the storage connection above (My
perception is that if you want the NFS export of gluster you use the /
else if you want the glusterfs protocol you don't. There is a line of
code in vdsm which replaces one underscore with two AND replaces a /
with an underscore, going back is ofcourse then impossible if you don't
store the original).

I hope one of the devs is willing to create the BZ with this info and I
hope has a solution to this problem.

Joop

I have just done the following on 2 servers which also hold the volumes
with '_' in it:

mkdir -p /gluster/br-ovirt-data02

ssm -f create -p vg_`hostname -s` --size 10G --name lv-ovirt-data02 --fstype

restorecon -Rv /gluster/br-ovirt-data02

mkdir /gluster/br-ovirt-data02/gl-ovirt-data02

chown -R 36:36 /gluster/

Added a replicated volume on top of the above, started it, added a
Storage Domain using that volume, moved a disk to it, and started the
VM, works! :-)

Should I open a BZ or does someone know of an existing one?

[ovirt-users] Regression in Gluster volume code?

2015-12-14 Thread Joop
I have reinstalled my test environment have come across an old error,
see BZ 988299, Bad volume specification {u'index': 0,.

At the end of that BZ there is mentioning of a problem with '_' in the
name of the volume and a patch is mentioned but the code has since been
change quite a bit and I can't find if that still applies. It look like
it doesn't because I have a gluster volume with the name gv_ovirt_data01
and it look like it gets translated to gv__ovirt__data01 and then I
can't start any VMs :-(
Weird thing, I CAN import VMs from the export domain to this gluster domain.

As Nir pointed out its possible.
I'm using such a setup at home where a NAS provides NFS storage for
hosted-engine and also iso/export/data domains for VMs. Besides that I
have an NFS server on my host for VMs which need a bit of disk
throughput, its got a nice SSD in it. Moving VM disks from the SSD
storage domain to the 'slow' storage domain on the NAS and vice versa
works fine.
Problem with these kind of setups is redundancy which is ofcourse
non-existant :-)

You probably mean the sanlock error.
After installing hosted-engine, which is not a problem, I got to the
webui and import the hosted-engine Storage, that is OK too, then I try
to activate it and thats where I get the sanlock error.

I have a hosted-engine installation on my laptop (F22) and have the
exact same error message about sanlock when activating the hosted-engine
storage domain.
Situation as follows:
- export a NFS share from local disk for hosted-engine vm
- export a NFS share from local disk for regular data domain
- export a NFS share from local disk for iso/export domain.
Hosted engine setup (Centos7) completes without problems, using the
webui works too, importing the hosted-engine storage domain is also OK
but then activating it gives the dreaded sanlock error.
Have started with a clean slate a couple of times but it happens
everytime. Regular ovirt-engine setup from  the same repository works fine.

Time permitting I'll do a clean slate install and make available all the
logs.

Upgrade to the latest version of 3.6RC and still having the sanlock error.
Cleaned up the install by cleaning the nfs shares. Reinstalling goes OK,
importing the hosted_engine storage work upto the point that its NOT
attached. Attaching it gives the above mentioned sanlock error.
Will start it later on and move logs to my main machine and I'm able to

You will need vdsm-nestedvt installed on all your hosts. It will pass through 
the vtx vtd bits from the hypervisor to the guest. 
You will need a relatively new kernel for this. Centos7 or Centos6+elrepo 3x 
kernel or Fedora.

Go to the Storage tab and Import Domain, fill in the required fields and

[ovirt-users] Trying hosted-engine on ovirt-3.6 beta

2015-08-28 Thread Joop
Hi All,

I have been trying the above and keep getting an error at the end about
unable to write to HEConfImage, see attached log.

Host is Fedora22 (clean system), engine is Centos-7.1, followed the
readme from the 3.6beta release notes but in short:
- setup a nfs server on the fedora22 host
- exported /nfs/ovirt-he/data
- installed yum, installed the 3.6 beta repo
- installed hosted engine
- ran setup
- installed centos7.1, ran engine-setup

Tried with and without selinux/iptables/firewalld.

Hi Alon,

I'll take the bait :-)

I have just installed the extension and the examples are there.
I also installed the migration tool. Now it comes.
We use Samba4 as our AD provider and have succesfully connected
Foreman-1.8 to it using the cert that I got from the server.
The same cert doesn't work with the migration tool. So either I'm
confused or .. The first possibility is most likely. I always trip over

 For RHEV I don't have an answer.

 But for anyone that cares, we've been running oVirt 3.5 and GlusterFS
 3.6 for about three months in production now. We run a Gluster cluster
 and a seperate virtualization hosts cluster. The Gluster cluster is
 installed, configured and managed seperately from oVirt as there is no
 way to have a seperate storage network in oVirt 3.5

I run something comparable but using a split dns to get a separate
storage network but also a storage cluster and virt cluster. The storage
is managed through ovirt though because of the split-dns.

 There have been no specific incompatibility issues, so we are very
 happy. But as we don't use every feature mileage may vary.
Question: do you use fuse mounts or libgfapi?

I use libgfapi in test, using special vdsm packages and need to test if
rebooting gluster nodes has an impact on running VMs. Select GlusterFS
storage domain in oVirt isn't guaranteed  to give you libgfapi!

Generate a new vnc password with hosted-engine (see hosted-engine

You could setup a vnc server and connect to it and then run

Using Zabbix as a monitoring system instead of letting vdsm do it solves
most of not all of your problems. Zabbix does have a proxy daemon which
can buffer data when either hosts or vms go down and send that to the
main server as soon as the link is restored. Thins work OK as long as
the agent or proxy isn't down and should thus not be part of the cluster.

Jeremy Utley jer...@ifuzioncorp.com schreef op 6 december 2014 00:21:22 CET:
Hello everyone!

I just finished setting up our new demo Ovirt implementation, but am
having
some issues once I get to the point of starting up a VM.  Every time we
try
to start a VM, we get the error:

The host {hostname} did not satisfy internal filter Network because
network(s) are missing.

Try looking at vdsm.log on the host where the vm is being started. You can 
force a host by using runonce and the host tab. Looking at engine.log migt also 
help

This is trying to launch vm with the Cirros image from the OVirt glance
repository.  This is confusing, because we only have one network
defined
(the ovirtmgmt network), and each of our 4 nodes shows it attached
and
indicated as functional.

Our nodes are all CentOS 6.6 installations, with the ovirtmgmt bridge
bound
to eth2.  If I go to Networks/ovirtmgmt under my datacenter, and click
on
the Networks tab at the top, select the ovirtmgmt network, and Hosts
tab at
the bottom, it shows that ovirtmgmt network is up on all 4 nodes.  Even
if
I tell the VM to not attach itself to any networks at all, the machine
fails to start with the same error.  Have done a lot of google
searching to
no avail.


We're also worried we did not get our gluster storage network set up
right.  We added the Storage Domain as type Data (Master)/GlusterFS,
but it
looks like Ovirt is using Fuse rather than the new libgfapi
functionality -
since we can see the gluster mounted /rhev/data-center/mnt/glusterSD/
with
fuse.glusterfs, which would indicate we are not using the native
Gluster
integration.  However, the latest info I can find seems to indicate
that
the gluster integration should be working in latest CentOS builds.
It should start working as soon as a patch is in mainline. It doesn't right now 
but it will if you use glusterfs as a data store.  There is a recent thread on 
the ML about it with me as OP.

 Hi,

 In my experience, having ovirt traffic on the same nic that gluster
 can make your platafrom unstable. I was using it for large file
 storage and gluster has so big traffic that ovirt got confused and
 started marking hosts as unavailable because of hi latency.
 I've opened an RFE over a year ago, but had no luck with the team to
 get it done. In the RFE I was asking to have a way in the UI to decide
 which nic to use for gluster other than the MGMT net that is the one
 ovirt lets you use.
 There's another way to do this and it's from outside ovirt. There you
 have to unregister and re register the bricks using gluster console
 commands. This way, when you register the bricks, you can specify the
 IP address of the spare NIC and then the traffic will not interfere
 with the mgmt.
 There's a step that I don't recall much, but ovirt is going to need to
 know that the bricks are no longer is the mgmt IP, maybe someone else
 in the list can help with this. I can tell you that if you search the
 list you'll see my posts about this and the replys of those who helped
 my back then.
 Regards,

The way I split this is using a split-dns solutions, either with bind or
hosts files. This way engine sees the mgmt address and the gluster
servers see their storage address.

FYI,

Just spend the better part of the day debugging a weird issue. Running
'yum update' on a CentOS-6.5 VM causes a kernel OOPS on the host :-(
The oops is in the nfs module (_put_nfs_open_context) and it looks like
there is work being done on it. Kernel(s) tried are all 3.16.x.
Switching back to the latest F19 kernel (is an updated system) and then
there is no crash anymore.

Tried all kinds of variations with different NFS servers, different
hosts, different kernels but I get the OOPS always during the yum update
sooner or later.
(updated ofcourse a lot of things before I hit this :-( )
