Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1283140
No way to add two providers on same address and different port
Last modified: 2018-01-05 18:51:14 EST
Description of problem:
CFME seems to disallow adding two providers sharing same Hostname (IP), but differing in port.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add provider A on hostname A.B.C.D port X
2. Try adding provider B on hostname A.B.C.D port Y
I understand this may be quite esoteric requirement, but I think there may be some NAT machine doing port-forwarding to different API serves based on port for example. In that case, the MIQ won't be able manage more than one of the API servers at a time.
John, is this a typical deployment for customers?
technically you can do this via https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1287834.
But, note that we're likely to close that loophole at some point in the future. We've never allowed more than one provider to reside on the same host.
If John Hardy (CFME Product Manager) comes back and says this is an important feature for us to support, we can reopen this issue.
