[RHEV] Unable to perform VM SmartState Analysis when VM is down on NFS
Last modified: 2015-12-21 07:27:02 EST
Description of problem:
Performing a VM SmartState Analysis fails when the VM is down on NFS. However, it succeed if the VM is up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define RHEV Provider
2. Provide Credentials
3. Refresh Relationships and Power States
4. Provide Host Credentials
5. Run a SmartState Analysis on a VM residing on NFS with host UP, VM down
Failure with "No active SmartProxy found to analyze this VM
Successful SmartState Analysis
May be due to using the Host the VM is running on to perform the SmartState Analysis when the VM is UP (Host = Nil if down).
The VM is part of a RHEV cluster. From the cluster, can find the Hosts UP on that cluster and select one to perform the SmartState Analysis.
Thom, I haven't been able to reproduce this problem. For RHEV SSA, we never use the hosts, so that can't be the issue. Also, there should be no need to add credentials for the hosts.
The SmartProxy in question is the appliance itself. For RHEV, the SmartState role needs to be set on the appliance, and the appliance needs to reside in the same datacenter as the VMs being scanned. Is that the case in your environment?
Yes, the SmartState role was set and the appliance resided in the same datacenter. I'll try to reproduce it.
