[ovirt-users] EVENT_ID not generated for VM Reboot

2019-05-08 Thread Sigbjorn Lie-Soland
Hi list,

When a user powers down a VM from within the VM operating system (poweroff), a 
"moved from 'Up' --> 'Down'" message is written to engine.log, and a EVENT_ID: 
VM_DOWN is created

When a user starts a VM from the webadmin, a "moved from 'WaitForLaunch' --> 
'PoweringUp'" and "'PoweringUp' --> 'Up'" is written to engine.log, and the 
events EVENT_ID: USER_STARTED_VM and EVENT_ID: USER_RUN_VM is created.

However when a user reboots a VM from within the VM operating system, the 
messages "moved from 'Up' --> 'RebootInProgress'" and "moved from 
'RebootInProgress' --> 'Up'" is written to the engine.log, but no EVENT_ID is 
generated. --

--

So systems like CloudForms/ManageIQ which reads the manager event log via the 
manager REST API is not notified when a VM is rebooted, and is therefore unable 
to perform any EmsEvent when the VM reboots. 

Why is there no EVENT_ID generated when a VM reboots? Is it possible to enable 
EVENT_ID's to be created for VM reboot events?

[ovirt-users] Hypervisor host CPU utilization metrics

2019-01-11 Thread Sigbjorn Lie-Soland
Hi,

Linux see twice the amount of CPUs for a host with SMT/hyperthreading enabled. 
Inspecting the individual cores presented to the operating system using mpstat 
shows that the guests are running primarily on the “physical cores”, which is 
expected as the system is SMT aware. The “hyperthreaded cores” are showing 
guest activity when the host cpu is heavily loaded. Using the traditional tools 
such as top and vmstat does not take hyperthreading into consideration when 
calculating the total cpu% usage, again, as expected.

How is the hypervisor host CPU utilization metrics in Ovirt calculated when a 
hypervisor host has SMT/hyperthreading enabled? Does Ovirt calculate in the 
same manner as the traditional vmstat/top/etc Linux tools, or does it only 
count CPU usage on the “physical cores” on the hypervisor? Does it read CPU 
metrics from the Intel PCM (https://github.com/opcm/pcm 
) ?

Does the “Count Threads as Cores” setting affect how the host hypervisor CPU 
utilization metrics are calculated?

The reason for asking is when using tools for capacity and utilization 
reporting to attempt to establish cluster growth and to anticipate when and how 
much hypervisor capacity to add, we need the input utilization data to be a 
correct representation of what is happening at the hypervisor host.

Thanks.



Regards,
Siggi

Hi,

Is this on CentOS/RHEL 7.2?

Log in as root as see if you can see any messages from ixgbe about "tx queue

currently have an open support case for RHEL7.2 and the ixgbe driver, where 
there is a driver

[ovirt-users] el6 and el7 clusters and SPM

2016-02-18 Thread Sigbjorn Lie
Hi

I am looking to migrate several el6 rhev-h nodes to el7 rhev-h nodes. There are 
multiple clusters
in the datacenter and it will take a while (several months) to have all the 
clusters in the data
center migrated to el7.

Is there be any potential issues to look out for with regards to having the SPM 
for this
datacenter running on a el6 or a el7 node in this datacenter? Any cross 
compatability issues to
look out for?

RHEV-M is currently at version 3.5.6. We are using FC storage.

[ovirt-users] aaa ldap+http sso & user portal

2015-10-26 Thread Sigbjorn Lie
Hi,

The aaa ldap+http sso works perfectly in 3.5.:)

However when logging in to the User Portal there is a slight problem. As I am 
logged in directly, I am unable to uncheck the “Connect Automatcally” checkbox. 
The user has access to several machines (Linux and Windows), and it’s not a 
good idea to simply connect to any one of them.

I have’t been able to find anywhere I can disable the “Connect Automatically”. 
I see that it’s code for having is configurable per user in a later version, 
but how may I make this go away in the current version? Perhaps a hack which 
rips out the ConnectAutomatically() function entirely and replaces it with a 
simple “return true”?

Re: [ovirt-users] Support for QinQ

2015-10-07 Thread Sigbjorn Lie
Ok. Thanks for your quick response. Sorry for my late reply back :)

I had a request to have multiple concurrent labs of testing end point equipment 
which required to see a vlan trunk having the exact same vlan numbers across 
all the labs. The vlans coming from each lab had to be mapped to different vms. 
The different lab networks could not be joined. This required adding the vlan 
trunk from each lab into a qinq trunk which connects to the same hypervisor. Or 
using networking equipment having the ability to rewrite the vlans of the lab 
vlan trunks into other vlan numbers before they reach the hypervisor.

Siggi

Hi list,

I've been looking around the web for QinQ support in Ovirt. I see that QinQ is 
supported in CentOS
6.x and above. However I cannot see any documented support in Ovirt. I've come

below which details QinQ as a future feature.

Is QinQ still a future feature, or is it possible to use QinQ with Ovirt today

This is a manual process for the user to be aware of and will generate

Or adding an option to work the same way as our current Secure Global

login

procedure to the Linux Desktop.

And this is a scenario that will be coming up often, as that every

In our environment the users who will use the Linux VDI solution

using a username and password from Red Hat IdM.


the problem is each authentication provider has a different method to
change password (no standard for this).
as a first step, we added in 3.3 the motd option (message of the day),
you can use that to put a text specifying in case of password

we'll another tweak to manage domains, to allow specyfing the password

then we can look about actually supporting this for specific providers.

I've installed 3.3 as a test and I can see that it's now correctly 
advising the user that his password has expired. But it does not provide 
the user with an option to change his/her password.




2. This creates a problem, as every time a password is reset in IPA, 
it's automatically set to be

expired so the user will change password at next logon.

Is there a way around this?


use the IPA web form to change the password by the user.

This is a manual process for the user to be aware of and will generate 
calls to the helpdesk. I believe it would create a much better user 
experience to allow the password to the changed as a part of the login 
procedure.


Or adding an option to work the same way as our current Secure Global 
Desktop solution allows us to do; Logging in the user with the expired 
password, and then the password is being changed as a part of the login 
procedure to the Linux Desktop.


And this is a scenario that will be coming up often, as that every time 
a new user is added or a password is reset for an existing user in Red 
Hat IdM, the password is set to be expired so that the user is forced to 
change it on next logon, and no option is provided in Red Hat IdM to 
work around this.


In our environment the users who will use the Linux VDI solution through 
the User Portal will be using a Windows desktop and this will be their 
only link into the Linux environment where they're required to log on 
using a username and password from Red Hat IdM.




I would like to see the user being able to log on the User Portal 
with the expired password, and
then he will be asked to change his password as usual once he's 
logging into his Linux VDI

machine.


for ovirt, open a BZ for an RFE to show expired password and link to 
web page for changing it.

for rhev, open a support ticket to get proper tracking, etc.


https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1037844

A ticket has been opened for RHEV referencing the BZ above.

Thanks.

[Users] Unable to log on with expired passord

2013-10-15 Thread Sigbjorn Lie
Hi,

I am doing a POC of RHEV 3.2 VDI for a customer. Their users are located in an 
IPA server, and
RHEV and IPA has been connected using rhevm-manage-domains.

During the POC we discovered that users which have expired password cannot log 
on. They receive an
Incorrect password error message.

1. They should at least receive a Your password has expired error instead of 
the Incorrect
password error message as this is confusing for the user.

2. This creates a problem, as every time a password is reset in IPA, it's 
automatically set to be
expired so the user will change password at next logon.

Is there a way around this?

I would like to see the user being able to log on the User Portal with the 
expired password, and
then he will be asked to change his password as usual once he's logging into 
his Linux VDI
machine.

Siggi

 earlier in the year we did a survey for feature requests / improvements / etc.


 since a lot of things were added, and priorities usually change, I'd like to 
 ask again for what
 do you need the most from oVirt / what are your pain points next?

 below[1] I've listed my understanding of what already went in from previous 
 survey requests (to
 various degrees of coverage).

 Thanks,
 Itamar


 [1] from the top 12
 V Allow disk resize
 V Integrate Nagios/Zabbix monitoring - via a ui plugin
 V Highly Available engine - via hosted engine[2]
 V Open vSwitch integration - via neutron integration
 X Allow cloning VMs without template
 ? Enable hypervisor upgrade/updates through engine[3]
 V Allow engine on an oVirt hosted VM - via hosted engine[2]
 V Enable guest configuration (root password, SSH keys, network) via
 guest agent in engine - via cloud-init X Integrate v2v into engine
 ? Bond/extend ovirtmgmt with a second network for HA/increased
 bandwidth[4] X Integrate scheduling of snapshots and VM export for backups in
 engine[5] V Spice – support Google Chrome - via mime based launch



 Other items mentioned in previous survey which should be covered by now:
 - Fix timeout when adding local host during all-in-one configuration
 - Fix engine set-up when SELinux is disabled
 - Provide packages for el6 (CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux)
 - Allow multiple VMs to be deployed from the same template at the same
 time - ISO domains on local/GlusterS
 - Show IP addresses in Virtual Machines-Network Interfaces
 - OpenStack Quantum support (now called Neutron)
 - noVNC support
 - Support spice.html5 and websocket proxy
 - Add other guest OSes to list
 - Port oVirt guest agent to Ubuntu[6]
 - SLA - Allow resource time-sharing
 - Spice - Mac client (via mime based launch)
 - Spice - port XPI plug-in to Windows (not sure this will happen, but
 mime based launch allows using firefox now) - Spice - client for 
 Ubuntu/Debian (should be covered
 via mime based launch)


 [2] hosted engine is in active development, but not released yet.
 [3] host update is supported, but not for general yum update.
 [4] a lot of improvements were done in this space, but i'm not sure if
 they cover this exact use case [5] backup api is now being pushed to master, 
 and orchestration of
 backups should probably happen via 3rd part backup vendors? [6] I'm not sure 
 packaging exists yet,
 but ubuntu is covered for the basic functionality of the guest agent.

I've seen a pdf document describing how to configure Red Hat Cluster and GFS

[Users] Single Sign On (Kerberos) to the user portal

Hi,

Is it possible to do Single Sign On to the user portal using Kerberos?

We have deployed FreeIPA where all our workstations are authenticating. 
We are already using SSO w/kerberos for web servers, and it would be

What I would like to do is to support external authentication in ovirt, so that 
it will take the user name out of the ajp protocol ?remote_user field, which 
maps into the HttpServletRequest.getUserPrincipal() at J2EE side.

Then use mod_auth_kerb to authenticate the user as I guess you would already 
have...




Yes we use mod_auth_kerb with Apache today. It works well.

I do not think I will be of much use with the programming, sorry.

Is there any ongoing work to get this implemented?

Hi,

Have you looked at Teradici PCoIP? They have a hardware solution based on a 
PCIe card in the host
machine, and a PCoIP thin client. The performance is stunning. You don't even 
notice that you're
connected to a thin client. I'm using this on a daily basis myself.

To get a broker you can use Leostream's Connection Broker which supports 
Teradici PCoIP both for
Windows and Linux.

You will be needing the thin client when connecting. I don't think you can use 
a software client
to connect to the physical machines. You can ask Leostream about this.

See the following youtube video for more info:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWjhAHDQZ7E

This solution is for physical machines, not virtual machines.

Siggi

Then you should still have a look at the Leostream Connection Broker.

They support a wide variety of protocols and flexible configurations as well.
