Controller  repo issue

Description of problem:

I encounter a problem of repo configuration issue. ( see log)

yum update could not install packages ( including puppet ones)

The rhel-osp-installer was stuck on 60% and Gui shows "WaitUntilHostReady"

{"host_id"=>5, "current_user_id"=>1}
{"status"=>false, "poll_attempts"=>{"total"=>742, "failed"=>0}}

We must report theses problems of repos , and timeout.

currently there is no timeout.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install staypuft and use wrong repo or subscription manager
we might give wrong user/password /  repo links or names
2.check the status of the deployment 

Actual results:

installation doesn't timeout 

Expected results:

Bad REPOs / subscription manager issues must be reported , and installation should be aborted

Some thoughts here:  

1.  there is no hook that I'm aware of to get the status from anaconda, so the only thing we can do is set a timeout for the *entire* provisioning step which is very difficult to do.  Depending on the environment, provisioning can take a long time.  

2.  Perhaps we could alter the kickstart so that it launches the install in vnc and provide a link to see the vnc (this might not even work, but it's possible)


any thoughts here?

I think first step here would be to validate rhn account details when the user inputs the detail on the installer.

Comment 6 Petr Chalupa 2014-10-08 14:22:26 UTC
a) I think at least some timeout would help, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1110528
b) Would be nice. Possibly monitor that there is new output and timeout if not.
