Moving to ON_QA.

These topics correspond to the new features in ovirt for integration with OSN:

I ran into some issues following these instructions:

See Bug # 1051567 and Bug # 1051540

I also think more information about what you can actually *do* with each provider is probably warranted. This chapter guides you through adding providers but there's no linkage to anything describing what can/can't be achieved (particularly important as this is only the first implementation phase for these).

See slide 27 of this deck to get an idea of what I'm talking about:


You would need to confirm these with Frederico and then find the same information for Neutron and Foreman.

Andrew have you managed to set this up in a local environment? If not let me know and I can share mine so you can see what was required to get this working and/or take some screenshots.
Comment 6 Stephen Gordon 2014-01-10 10:51:25 EST
Additionally note that if adding a Neutron provider once you select the neutron plugin in use there is an entire "Agent Configuration" tab.

I would suggest contacting someone from the networking team for advice on how this should be filled in (I don't know).

Comment 8 Stephen Gordon 2014-01-10 10:54:23 EST
I think the issue in comment # 6 is I can't see these two in the document on the stage (maybe I'm blind :)):

4. Add Provider Settings - Agents   [ 25146 ]
6. Edit Provider Settings - Agents  [ 25147 ]
Comment 9 Andrew Dahms 2014-01-12 19:28:25 EST
Hi Stephen,

Thanks for your input - I will take a look over the section and incorporate the two new bugs you have raised in addition to the above. I should be able to test most of it in my local environment, but I will make sure to reach out to yourself if I run into any trouble.

In regards to the agent settings topics, you should be able to see them on docs-devel here:


Let me know if you have any more issues and I will see what I can do.
