Description Madison Kelly 2015-03-06 02:47:23 UTC
Description of problem:

I foolishly tried to migrate a VM service that was stopped.

[root@node1 ~]# clusvcadm -M vm:vm01-rhel6 -m node1.ccrs.bcn
Trying to migrate vm:vm01-rhel6 to node1.ccrs.bcn...Temporary failure; try again

The error written to syslog was:

Mar  6 02:43:05 node1 rgmanager[2865]: BUG! Attempt to forward to myself!

This could be a more useful message, I would think. Something like:

Trying to migrate vm:vm01-rhel6 to node1.ccrs.bcn...failure, vm is off


Mar  6 02:43:05 node1 rgmanager[2865]: Failed to migrate stopped VM.

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


How reproducible:

100%, I think

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Stop a VM
2. Try to migrate it

Actual results:

Odd error

Expected results:

An error politely telling me to wear a dunce cap.

Closing WONTFIX as only critical bugs are being accepted at this point in time for rgmanager.

Comment 4 Madison Kelly 2015-12-18 00:35:57 UTC
OK. Is this generally the take on cman/rgmanager from this point on? If so, then I'll consider the severity of future issues before opening future rhbz's.
