Comment 1 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-07-21 08:46:47 UTC
I suggest an async release before 3.4.4 as soon as this is fixed.

Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-07-21 08:48:33 UTC
Also I find this a bit weird, since vdsm worked fine on All In One setup, maybe we had libvirt already configured on our test systems.

Comment 3 Dan Kenigsberg 2014-07-21 10:11:20 UTC
Could it be another case of bug 1120049 ?

Would you verify by following https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1120049#c12

Comment 4 Andrew Lau 2014-07-21 11:26:03 UTC
After adding it to ovirt-engine, it adds the host, fails to install but can later be activated with service vdsmd restart (and running the latest version of vdsm)

previously I was running hosted-engine --deploy and it was failing at vdsm connection timed out (which required yum downgrade to get it running). So adding to ovirt-engine does something different to hosted-engine --deploy ?

I've successfully been able to run VMs on the newly provisioned host with the latest version of vdsmd.

I will need to re-provision and try again to verify your bug 1120049 case.

Comment 5 Yaniv Bronhaim 2014-07-22 07:20:14 UTC
it doesn't look like an issue, it only says to you - "Modules libvirt are not configured (note: this not a spelling mistake, it should specify as a list).... (alot of garbage) ... please run - 'vdsm-tool configure [module_name]' 

this happens when you install vdsm manually (e.g yum install vdsm) without using ovirt-host-deploy which performs this vdsm-tool call for you

can you specify the way you installed vdsm? after running "vdsm-tool configure" does it work?

Comment 6 Andrew Lau 2014-07-22 08:39:32 UTC
This was my summarised install flow,

yum -y install ovirt-hosted-engine-setup 
# configure NICs and ovirtmgmt

hosted-engine --deploy
.. failed - connection timed out

yum downgrade vdsm*

hosted-engine --deploy
-- successful

I did try running vdsm-tool configure, I do not have logs/exact results.. but it failed in a similar fashion.

Comment 7 Yaniv Bronhaim 2014-07-22 12:29:33 UTC
ok, this is something else that I didn't understand from your previous comments.
Sandro, can you verify that "hosted-engine --deploy" runs 
"vdsm-tool configure --force" as part of installing and configuring vdsm on host? and if it runs it and fails, where are the logs?

Comment 8 Sandro Bonazzola 2014-07-22 13:25:01 UTC
Yaniv, yes "hosted-engine --deploy" calls "vdsm-tool configure --force" as part of installing and configuring vdsm on host.

The logs including stdout and stderr are in /var/log/ovirt-hosted-engine-setup/

Comment 9 Yaniv Bronhaim 2014-07-22 15:48:19 UTC
the issue is similar to Bug 1114993 and fixed as part of it. closing the bug as duplicated. you can be sure about it when see that the command "vdsm-tool passwd" fails on finding /sbin/saslpasswd2
this command sets the vdsm@ovirt user that allows the communication between vdsm and libvirt.
you can run it manually as a workaround "/usr/sbin/saslpasswd2 -p -a libvirt vdsm@ovirt" and then restart vdsm service.
