oVirt gerrit 40802 0 master MERGED packaging: setup: automatically shutdown engine VM on automated setup Never

Description Artyom 2014-07-17 16:22:29 UTC
Description of problem:
When you installed engine on hosted-engine-vm, and deployment process checked if engine is available, deployment print line "The system will wait until the VM is down" and wait until user manually will shutdown vm.
It was really useful to get to user choice:
(1) Shutdown vm automatically
(2) Shutdown vm manually
(3) Some other options

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Continue hosted-engine --deploy until you coming to stage "The system will wait until the VM is down"

Actual results:
Deployment process will wait until user shutdown vm until end of the world without give possibility to user choice to shutdown vm automatically

Expected results:
Some interact menu that will give to user possibility to choose option to shutdown vm automatically

Additional info:
Thanks to Lukas Bednar we almost have automatically hosted-engine deployment process, but because this stage not interactive, we still need to shutdown vm manually, so I also set this bug to be AutomationBlocker

Comment 1 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-07-22 14:47:09 UTC
targeting to 3.6, I suggest to backport to 3.5.z too.

Comment 2 Doron Fediuck 2014-10-01 08:21:49 UTC
Auto shutdown may be harmful is some scenarios.
The way we'll handle it is by allowing an automation flag in the answer file.

So manual installation will show the same text we have today.
However, automation using an answer file will be able to add a flag which
will auto-shutdown the VM to allow automation completion.

Comment 3 Artyom 2015-05-26 08:11:21 UTC
Verified on ovirt-hosted-engine-setup-1.3.0-0.0.master.20150518075146.gitdd9741f.el7.noarch
Add line to answer file:
Vm shutdowned automatically.

Comment 5 Ilanit Stein 2015-06-03 09:44:01 UTC
Adding test coverage flag "-", as there is no need for a test plan.
