Description Yedidyah Bar David 2015-04-29 07:04:44 UTC
Description of problem:

It should be possible to install and use engine-backup on dwh/reports when they are set up on separate machines.

The code basically allows that.

Main issue is that its currently packaged inside the -tools package, which requires the engine. Need to think if we can drop this dep.

Comment 1 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2015-10-19 10:55:36 UTC
Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.

Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-03-02 12:44:25 UTC
Needed for migration from el6 to el7

Comment 3 Yaniv Lavi 2016-03-21 14:30:47 UTC
Why did you move this?
How will be backup dwh on el6 before moving it to el7?

Comment 4 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-03-22 10:04:23 UTC
Bug cloned to 3.6 since the solution will differ between 4.0 and 3.6.
