Hello, I have a few questions regarding migration of HostedEngine. Currently I have a cluster of 3 oVirt 4.3.3 nodes, all three of them are capable of running HE and I can freely migrate HostedEngine and regular VMs between them. However I deployed HostedEngine storage on rather edgy NFS server and I would like to migrate it to iSCSI based storage with multipathing. Quite a few VMs are already running on cluster and are using iSCSI data storage.
Documentation is rather chaotic and fragmented, but from what I gathered the path of migration is someting like: - place one host (#1), the "failover" host, into maintenance mode prior to backup - export configuration with engine-backup - set global maintenance mode on all hosts - install ovirt engine on that host (#1) (already installed, since this is HE capable host) - restore engine configuration using engine-backup - run engine-setup with new parameters regarding storage - after engine-setup, log into admin portal and remove old host (#1) - redeploy hosts #2 and #3 Last two steps are a bit confusing as I'm not sure how removing old failover host on which new HE is running would work. Also not understanding the part where hosts 2 and 3 are described as unrecoverable (but with running VMs, which I'd have to live migrate to other hosts - how, if they're not operational?). Few other things: - Should I first remove & re-add host #1 without HE already deployed on host? - Should I set global maintenance mode on all hosts before migration? I'm guessing this is required if I want to prevent HE being started on random host during transition... - Which host should be selected as SPM during the transition phase? - How can I configure iSCSI multipathing? Self-hosted engine documentation mentions Multipath Helper tool, however I cannot find any info about it. Is this tool freely available or only a part od RHEL subscription? - Can I configure existing iSCSI Domain which already hosts some VMs as HE storage? Or do I have to assign extra LUN/target exclusively for HE?
