thanks a lot.
So i understand everything is fine with my nodes and i'll wait until the
update GUI shows the right version to update (4.1.5 at the moment).

oVirt node ng is shipped with a placeholder rpm preinstalled.
The image-update rpms obsolete the placeholder rpm, so once a new
image-update rpm is published, yum update will pull those packages. So
you have 1 system that was a fresh install and the others were upgrades.
Next, the post install script for those image-update rpms will install
--justdb the image-update rpms to the new image (so running yum update
in the new image won't try to pull again the same version).
Regarding the 4.1.6 it's very strange, we'll need to check the repos to
see why it was published.
As for nodectl, if there are no changes, it won't be updated and you'll
see an "old" version or a version that doesn't seem to be matching the
current image, but it is ok, we are thinking of changing its name to
make it less confusing.
Hope this helps,

i still don't completely understand the oVirt Node update process
and the involved rpm packages.
We have 4 nodes, all running oVirt Node 4.1.3. Three of them show as
(i don't want run release candidates), one of them shows
'ovirt-node-ng-image-update-4.1.5-1.el7.centos' (this is what i
like). The node that doesn't want to upgrade to '4.1.6-0.1.rc1'
lacks the rpm package
'ovirt-node-ng-image-update-4.1.3-1.el7.centos.noarch', only has
Also the version of ovirt-node-ng-nodectl is
'4.1.3-0.20170709.0.el7' instead of '4.1.3-0.20170705.0.el7'. This
node was the last one i installed and never made a version update
I only began using oVirt starting with 4.1, but already completed
minor version upgrades of oVirt nodes. IIRC this 'mysterious'
ovirt-node-ng-image-update package comes into place when updating a
node for the first time after initial installation. Usually i
wouldn't care about all of this, but now i have this RC update
situation that i don't want. How is this supposed to work? How can i
