I tried this case about ten times, couldn't reproduce it in rhev-hypervisor7-7.0-20150105.0.

Test steps:
1. Create a VM with a multipathed disk on a SATA bus(Create two disks in virt manager, pointing to the same disk image, and both disks need the same serial
number)
2. Install RHEV-H

Comment 5 Ying Cui 2015-01-07 16:18:10 UTC
According to comment 4, Virt QE tested 10 times, can not reproduce it, so far we can not easy qa_ack+. it's related probability bug.
What is standard to verify this bug? How many test execution if can not reproduce this bug, then this bug can safe verified?

Comment 6 Fabian Deutsch 2015-01-08 19:36:51 UTC
10 times is good number of tries. Especially when it was tried on different hardware.

This bug is a race, so it is hard to reproduce.
I'd say, if you not encounter any "failed to install bootlader" message in your testing, then we can see this bug as verified.

Comment 9 Ying Cui 2015-01-26 07:53:30 UTC
haiyang, please verify this bug according to comment 6.

here i pasted my test comment here FYI only:
Tested on z600-03, 3 times on TUI installation with rhev-hypervisor7-7.0-20150114.0, all successful, no encounter failed to set bootloader error.

Comment 10 haiyang,dong 2015-01-29 13:08:31 UTC
Test version:
rhev-hypervisor7-7.0-20150127.0.iso
ovirt-node-3.2.1-6.el7.noarch

Test steps:
1. Create a VM with a multipathed disk on a SATA bus(Create two disks in virt manager, pointing to the same disk image, and both disks need the same serial
number)
2. Install RHEV-H

I still couldn't reproduce it in rhev-hypervisor7-7.0-20150127.0.iso and also according to Comment 9, verified this bug.
