Hi Didi, thanks for the attention! I created a clean slate test using four identical (Atom J5005 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD) boxes and virgin SSDs.
Three-node hosted-engine using oVirt node 4.3.5 (August 5th) image. Tested adding an n+1 compute node with the same current oVirt image, which worked fine (after a long serious of trouble with existing CentOS machines). Since EL7 seems to have equal standing as oVirt nodes, I couldn't quite believe that it fails always. I tried to isolate if there was something specific in my way of setting up the CentOS nodes that caused the failure. So I started with a clean sheet CentOS 7 an another clean SSD. CentOS 1810 ISOs, developer workstation install variant, storage layout identical to the oVirt recommended, updated to the latest patches. Added oVirt repo, cockpit oVirt dashboard, ssl key etc. with all the proper reboots Test 1: Add 4th node as host to three-node cluster. Works like a charm, migrate a running VM back and forth, activate maintenance and remove 4th host Experiment 1: Add epel "yum install epe-release", yum install yumex, pick Cinnamon in Yumex (or basically yum groupinstall cinnamon) Test 2: Try to add 4th node again: Immediate failure with that message in the management engine's deploy log. Experiment 2: yum erase group cinnamon; yum autoremove; reboot Test 3: Add 4th node again: Success! (Adding Cinnamon afterwards, no problem, re-install seems likely to fail) Yes, I saw that bug report. Noticed it was REHL8 and... wasn't sure it would be related. And, like you, I can't really fathom why this would happen: I compared packet versions on both sides, oVirt nodes and CentOS for everyone involved and they seemed identical for everything. I had installed the yum priorities plugin and made sure that the "full" epel repository had prio 99 while the oVirt repos had 1 to ensure that oVirt would win out in case of any potential version conflict... As I understand it, this log on the engine lists actions performed via an ssh connection on the to-be host, and that OTOPI might actually be gathering packages through some time of y miniyum to then deploy on the to-be host in the next step. So I don't know if the Python context of this is the normal Python 2 context of the to-be host, or a temporary one that was actually created on-the-fly etc. Somehow I never found the 200 page oVirt insider bible .-) If you can help me with some context, perhaps I can dig deeper and help filing a better bug report. At the moment it seems so odd and vage, I didn't feel comfortable. Can't see any attach buttons, so I guess I may have to fiddle with my browser's privacy settings.. _______________________________________________ Users mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to users-le...@ovirt.org Privacy Statement: https://www.ovirt.org/site/privacy-policy/ oVirt Code of Conduct: https://www.ovirt.org/community/about/community-guidelines/ List Archives: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/message/54X3236S4PFQTIA6Z6O4ZXYA25AY3JMY/
