Description Jiri Belka 2014-10-03 15:41:26 UTC
Description of problem:
ibm power8

# vdsClient -s 0 getVdsHardwareInfo
        systemFamily = 'PowerNV'
        systemManufacturer = 'unavailable'
        systemProductName = 'unavailable'
        systemSerialNumber = '8247-22L'
        systemUUID = '2116A5A'
        systemVersion = 'PowerNV 8247-22L'


intel del r210ii

# vdsClient -s 0 getVdsHardwareInfo
        systemManufacturer = 'Dell Inc.'
        systemProductName = 'PowerEdge R210 II'
        systemSerialNumber = '34SRJ5J'
        systemUUID = '4C4C4544-0034-5310-8052-B3C04F4A354A'

IIRC IBM did not sell Pseries to Lenovo yet, so Manufacturer is still IBM :D

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get getVdsHardwareInfo output

Actual results:
missing data

Expected results:
all data

Additional info:

Comment 1 Yaniv Bronhaim 2014-10-05 14:01:32 UTC
Jiri, I don't understand what field is missing. please attach your full dmidecode --system output and let me know exactly what field do you think that is missing here. afair vdsm returns all the dmidecode output, expect those who aren't provided by dmidecode, or specified as UNKNOWN.

Comment 2 Jiri Belka 2014-10-05 14:34:39 UTC
there's no dmidecode for ppc64 platform.

Comment 3 Yaniv Bronhaim 2014-10-05 16:01:53 UTC
Jiri, sorry,. totally forgot about the initial work - we have ppc64HardwareInfo.py which I prefer to leave to Vitor to take a look 

Vitor, can you share your thoughts ?

Comment 4 Michal Skrivanek 2014-10-06 08:02:57 UTC
These values are pulled from "system" table of x86 BIOS so it's not applicable to pseries. I would close NOTABUG

Comment 5 Jiri Belka 2014-10-06 08:26:48 UTC
What? Then you should get it in other way, virtualization doesn't exist only on buggy x86 platform.

Comment 6 Jiri Belka 2014-10-06 08:34:54 UTC
FYI on AIX one can to `uname -M' and `prtconf' to get some hw details.

systemSerialNumber = '8247-22L'
                      ^^^^^^^^ but model version

Comment 7 Vitor de Lima 2014-10-08 14:15:34 UTC
The proposed patch fixes this issue.

Comment 8 Lukas Svaty 2014-11-11 13:12:11 UTC
we need this build from ibm for 3.5 for this reason moving back to ASSIGNED

Comment 9 Jiri Belka 2014-11-25 09:58:32 UTC
checking via restapi / 3.4.4:

            <manufacturer>Dell Inc.</manufacturer>
            <product_name>PowerEdge R210 II</product_name>

            ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ lshw shows IBM as vendor
            <version>PowerNV 8247-22L</version>
             ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ serial: 211DA9A
             ^^^^^^^^^^^^^ model: lshw - IBM Power System S822L ??
             Model Name: 8247-22L

            ^^^^^^ ??

it would be also nice to see firmware:

[root@ibm-p8-rhevm-02 ~]# lscfg -v | sed -n '/firmware/,$p'
  firmware                               System Firmware

        Firmware.(CL).............OPAL v3 5037623

[root@ibm-p8-rhevm-02 ~]# lsmcode 
Version of System Firmware is FW810.10 (SV810_081) (t) FW810.10 (SV810_081) (p) FW810.10 (SV810_081) (b)

Comment 10 Michal Skrivanek 2014-11-25 13:35:49 UTC
the bug is fixed in 3.5, so where did you test it?

for the additional fw - open a standalone bug. it wasn't asked for in the original description.

as for the build availability - you can use the upstream oVirt 3.5 version to verify...

Comment 11 Jiri Belka 2014-11-25 13:50:23 UTC
this should be backported imo, 3.4.4 is still wrong

Comment 12 Michal Skrivanek 2014-11-25 13:53:04 UTC
(In reply to Jiri Belka from comment #11)
> this should be backported imo, 3.4.4 is still wrong

request an exception on program call then, but the likelihood is pretty low;-)

Comment 15 Artyom 2015-05-03 13:23:40 UTC
Wait for 3.6 RHEL7.2 ppc build

Comment 18 Artyom 2015-07-12 15:17:11 UTC
Checked on vdsm-
vdsClient -s 0 getVdsHardwareInfo
return nothing

Comment 19 Michal Skrivanek 2015-07-20 07:00:08 UTC
additionally, getVdsStats raises exception
