Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, the pki-pkcs12-extract.sh script relied on the existence of the /dev/fd directory. In Linux, this is normally symbolically linked to the /proc/self/fd directory, allowing processes to access its STDIN, STDOUT, etc as named files. If the /dev/fd directory did not exist, the script failed. This includes, for example, trying to run engine-setup during installation from a kickstart file. With this update, the script was updated to use the /proc/self/fd directly. Now the script only requires that the /proc direcory is mounted, and does not fail if the /dev/fd directory does not exist.

Description Perry Clegg 2015-04-07 00:01:17 UTC
Description of problem:

When kickstarting a RHEV system the following error occurs in the ovirt logs:

Traceback in ovirt-engine-setup-20150302232315-a4ccw1.log
2015-03-02 23:23:59 DEBUG otopi.context context._executeMethod:138 Stage misc METHOD otopi.plugins.ovirt_engine_setup.ovirt_engine.pki.ssh.Plugin._misc

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): RHEV 5.6

How reproducible: Very reproducible, Roman Hodain  reproduced the issue with extra logging adding:

   #/bin/sh -x
   exec &>/root/pki.out

to /usr/share/ovirt-engine/bin/pki-pkcs12-extract.sh and reproducing the issue. The openssl complains about /dev/fd/1 which is not available during the installation:

   openssl pkcs12 -in /etc/pki/ovirt-engine/keys/engine.p12 -passin pass:mypass -passout pass: -nocerts -out /dev/fd/1 -nodes
   Error opening output file /dev/fd/1
   /dev/fd/1: No such file or directory

To fix the issue:

As it turns out the device is missing during the installation. A workaround can be achieve by adding the following in the post script of the kickstart:

    mkdir /dev/fd
    ln -s /proc/self/fd/0 /dev/fd/0
    ln -s /proc/self/fd/1 /dev/fd/1

Related code:

        if [ "${key}" = - ]; then
                touch "${key}"
                chmod go-rwx "${key}" || die "Cannot set key permissions"

        openssl \
                pkcs12 \
                -in "${pkcs12}" \
                -passin "pass:${passin}" \
                -passout "pass:${passout}" \
                -nocerts \
                -out "${key}" \
                ${extra_args} \
                || die "Cannot create key"

        return 0
