Hi,It worked (thanks Ekin, I'd probably had not turned it off and it would indeed been restarted), restarting libvirtd and vdsmd made all machines set their status to up. Seems the cuprit is libvirtd in this case, as I could see some errors in the log. I'm attaching the log FWIW.
Thanks. El 07/08/16 a las 19:37, Ekin Meroğlu escribió:
Hi,Just a reminder, if you have power management configured, first turn that off for the host - when you restart vdsmd with the power management configured, engine finds it not responding and tries to fence (e.g. reboot) the host.Other than that, restarting vdsmd has been safe in my experience...

I actually don't know how (and when) did this happen, but I'd like to restore service possibly without turning off these machines. The host is up, the VMs are up, 'qemu' process exists, no errors, it's just the VMs running on it that have a '?' where status is defined. Is it safe in this case to simply modify database and set those VM's status to 'up'? I remember having to do this a time ago when we faced storage issues, it didn't break anything back then. If not, is there a "safe" way to migrate those VMs to a different host and restart the host that marked them as unknown? Hi Nicolás, I assume that the host these VMs are running on is empty in the webadmin, right? if that is the case then you've probably hit . Changing their status to up is not the way to go since these VMs will not be monitored. Hi Arik, By "empty" you mean the webadmin reports the host being running 0 VMs? If so, that's not the case, actually the VM count seems to be correct in relation to "qemu-*" processes (about 32 VMs), I can even see the machines in the "Virtual machines" tab of the host, it's just they are all marked with the '?' mark. No, I meant the 'Host' column in the Virtual Machines tab but if you see the VMs in the "Virtual machines" sub-tab of the host then run_on_vds points to the right host.. The host is up in the webadmin as well? Can you share the engine log? Yes, the host is up in the webadmin, there are no issues with it, just the VMs running on it have the '?' mark. I've made 3 tests: 1) Restart engine: did not help 2) Check firewall, seems to be ok. 2) PostgreSQL: UPDATE vm_dynamic SET status = 1 WHERE status = 8; : After a while, I see lots of entries like this: 2016-08-04 09:23:10,910 WARN [org.ovirt.engine.core.dal.dbbroker.auditloghandling.AuditLogDirector] (DefaultQuartzScheduler4) [6ad135b8] Correlation ID: null, Call Stack: null, Custom Event ID: -1, Message: VM xxx is not responding. I'm attaching the engine log, but I don't know when did this happen for the first time, though. If there's a manual way/command to migrate VMs to a different host I'd appreciate a hint about it. Is it safe to restart vdsmd on this host? The engine log looks fine - the VMs are reported as not-responding for some reason. I would restart libvirtd and vdsmd then Is restarting those two daemons safe? I mean, will that stop all qemu-* processes, so the VMs marked as unknown will stop? Thanks. Thanks. Yes, there is no other way to resolve it other than changing the DB but the change should be to update run_on_vds field of these VMs to the host you know they are running on. Their status will then be updates in 15 sec.  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1354494 <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1354494> Arik. Thanks.
