Description Jason DeTiberus 2015-10-26 15:21:45 EDT
Previously we had to set the system hostname to workaround unconfigurable code paths that would use uname to lookup the system's hostname. 

This should no longer be necessary as we can override all of the necessary hostnames using configuration.

Comment 3 Jason DeTiberus 2015-11-18 15:09:50 EST
We need to make sure that this change doesn't break OSE 3.0.0 deployments as well.
Comment 4 Ma xiaoqiang 2015-11-19 02:33:03 EST
If the system hostname is not resolved, we can get the error messages in the log

Is it worse to set the system hostname?
Comment 5 Jason DeTiberus 2015-11-19 10:42:57 EST
Can you provide the following files from the system that threw that error?
- /etc/origin/node/node-config.yaml
- /etc/ansible/facts.d/openshift.fact
- ansible inventory file
Comment 10 Johnny Liu 2015-11-30 00:49:46 EST
This is breaking QE's auto installation, so raise its priority.
Comment 12 Gaoyun Pei 2015-12-03 01:05:13 EST
This issue is also blocking the installation of atomic-openshift-installer when setting hostname needed, since there's no way to specify the value of openshift_set_hostname during the interaction. 

Test with:
Comment 13 Brenton Leanhardt 2015-12-03 08:48:53 EST
Hi Gaoyun,

When you say there is no way to set openshift_set_hostname do you mean using atomic-openshift-installer?  Jason will probably chime in if I'm confused by I think you would would need to set it in your inventory:

Comment 14 Brenton Leanhardt 2015-12-03 08:53:46 EST
This should be testable with the latest puddle.

Also, I see now that Comment #12 is indeed referring to atomic-openshift-installer.  I'm removing needinfo.
Comment 15 Brenton Leanhardt 2015-12-03 08:54:24 EST
To be clear, this bug is for testing the feature by running ansible directly.
Comment 18 Ma xiaoqiang 2015-12-10 21:35:50 EST
Get the expected result. Move it to VERIFIED.
