Description Leonid Natapov 2013-09-16 13:38:53 UTC
Description of problem:
engine monitoring fails because metadata file is missing. The file is missing because it wasn't created by setup. ovirt-hosted-engine setup should create metadata file.

Merged upstream master.

Creates the metadata file is shared by all hosts participating in the engine
high availability cluster.  Each host is assigned a 4KiB chunk according
to its host id, with a corresponding offset of host_id*4KiB.  The
initial 4KiB of the file are reserved for shared state such as a global
engine ha maintenance bit.

hosted engine is a new package, does not need errata for specific bugs during its development.
