Upgrade from VDSM image to base Node leaves broken VDSM configuration
Last modified: 2013-10-25 10:04:50 EDT
Description of problem:
The removal of VDSM from the base ovirt-node image leaves a case where an upgrade can be performed to the next version of ovirt-node from an image without VDSM installed, and libvirtd.conf still configured for VDSM, so libvirtd fails to start.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install an ovirt-node image which includes VDSM.
2. Upgrade ovirt-node to an image which does not include VDSM.
libvirtd cannot start.
libvirtd log file complains that it cannot find /etc/pki/vdsm/certs/cacert.pem
The upgrade process should leave a configured libvirtd.conf in place if the image includes VDSM (or other plugins in the future which configure libvirtd, but replace it with a base libvirtd.conf which works out of the box.
we don't support this upgrade path (RHEV-H for RHEV to RHEV base image), so we can close this bug.
I did however opened bug 1023481 to track the creation of a sane libvirt config.
