Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, attempting to register a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor with the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager would fail if the user specified port 443 as the port by which to connect to the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager but the certificate of that Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager had not been retrieved. Now, users are prompted to accept the certificate provided by the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager specified in the Management Server field when registering the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor and no certificate has been retrieved.

Description Pavel Stehlik 2014-03-26 14:37:46 UTC
Created attachment 879023 [details]

Description of problem:
 Issue found during registering REHVH via TUI & SSL port. After providing FQDN and Port the host didn't appear in rhevm. 
 Workaround is either to use port 80 or to Retrieve certificate (then Cert. status in tui is 'Verified'. 

If this is supposed workflow, feel free to change subject as 'missing error dialogue - fetch certificate first' (or similar).

Comment 1 Pavel Stehlik 2014-03-26 14:50:15 UTC
AFAIR in past there was a dialogue which provides cert info & offered Approve/Reject. Currently it's hidden behind another separate button.

Comment 2 Fabian Deutsch 2014-03-26 15:53:39 UTC
Pavel, can you just confirm:

The intdended workflow is:

Provide URL -> Retrieve Cert -> Save/Register -> Done

You did:

Provide URL-> Save/Register -> FAIL


Comment 3 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-03-26 19:09:38 UTC
Fabian, to me looks like ovirt-node-plugin-vdsm isn't?

Comment 4 Fabian Deutsch 2014-03-27 16:36:28 UTC
Hey Douglas,

we need to take crae that we are not mixing two issues here.
In the description I see the 500 error - that might be one issue.
And the "unusual" workflow might be a second issue.

Maybe someone with vdsm knowledge can tell if the 500 error is okay?

Comment 5 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-03-27 18:41:19 UTC

Please attach engine log so we can see why 500 was returned.


Comment 7 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-03-27 20:27:18 UTC
2014-03-25 20:01:34,009 ERROR [org.ovirt.engine.core.bll.RegisterVdsQuery] (ajp-/ Query execution failed due to invalid inputs. Invalid OTP for host

2014-03-25 20:01:34,009 ERROR [org.ovirt.engine.core.register.RegisterServlet] (ajp-/ Failed to run RegisterVds.

Never saw this message... and no ticket is sent:

URI= /RHEVManagerWeb/VdsAutoRegistration.aspx?vds_ip=

So it is very strange, can you please enable engine debug log and retry? Please do not use http it should not be used for production.

I would like to see this from RegisterServlet:

            log.debug("Using the following parameters to call query:\nIP: " + strIP + ", Name: "
                    + strName + ", UUID: " + strID + ", Port: " + nPort + otpMessage);

Just for the record in 3.4 I removed the entire otp handling... as it was a mess.

Comment 8 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-03-28 03:48:00 UTC
IMO ovirt-node-plugin-vdsm should popup to users the certificate when they register via https to accept it or not (even if they do not select "Retrieve Certificate" button). Pavel, raising needinfo by comment#7, we might need to split this bugzilla.

Comment 9 Douglas Schilling Landgraf 2014-04-01 21:44:16 UTC
Moving to post since the original bug report is about collect the cert without the Retrieve Certificate button.

Comment 15 Fabian Deutsch 2014-04-07 07:23:22 UTC
Removing the Regression keyword, as it has been like this since 3.3 GA.
