oVirt gerrit 42219 master MERGED spec: require kernel version to avoid sudo hanging Never

Description Gordon Watson 2014-03-31 14:28:06 UTC
Description of problem:

The intent of this bug is just to point out a problem that happened recently and that it is currently being addressed via a kernel bug, BZ 1081282. 

The problem is that the 'sudo' command hung in getifaddrs(). 

For the customer that encountered this, when they started VDSM, the supervdsm process failed to start due to 'sudo' hanging and VDSM was therefore unable to connect to supervdsm's socket. The host then became Non-Responsive.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

RHEV 3.1
RHEL 6.5 hosts with 'vdsm-4.13.2-0.11'

How reproducible:

It only happened the one time.

Steps to Reproduce:

ovirt-3.6.0-3 release

Comment 13 Jiri Belka 2015-07-31 14:44:48 UTC
BZ1081282 is related to RHEL6. ovirt/rhevm 3.6.x won't support RHEL6 as hosts.

vdsm requires kernel >= 3.10.0-132.el7, although BZ1081282 doesn't mention anything about RHEL7 kernel...

Please put valid keyword so it's clear it doesn't require any QA action. Thank you.

# yum deplist vdsm | grep 'dependency.*kernel'
  dependency: kernel >= 3.10.0-132.el7
# yum info vdsm | egrep "^Release|^Version"
Version     : 4.17.0
Release     : 1054.git562e711.el7

Comment 14 Yeela Kaplan 2015-08-02 07:37:23 UTC
Please notice this bug is also dependant on BZ#1092400 which is rhel7.
so I think there's no need  in adding a flag.
