diff -r -q affected_datastore_extracted non_affected_datastore_extracted.out

Description of problem:
Appliances originally running 5.3.0 are using automations not present in their current release even after reset of the appliance's datastores

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

How reproducible:
all the time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a 5.3.0 appliance
2. create a sample automation
3. upgrade to 5.4 using the documented path from the release notes
4. reset the datastore

Actual results:
in the ManageIQ and RedHat automations, content dating from 5.3.0 will continue to be present even after reset of the appliance datastore, such as /ManageIQ/Infrastructure/VM/Retirement/

Expected results:
the datastore of ManageIQ and RedHat are comparable to the contents of a deployed (if is the level the apppliance is updated to)

note : to reset the datastore the UI is used.

Could you please provide the logs after you done the reset from the UI.

Hi Felix,

Do you have an environment setup to reproduce this issue?  If so, can I access it?

Comment 11 Tina Fitzgerald 2015-11-24 12:30:45 EST
While I investigate your issue further, there are rake tasks that might help you in the meantime. You can import and export the domains you want.

Detail about the import/export commands:
rake evm:automate:usage

sample export
rake evm:automate:export DOMAIN=ManageIQ EXPORT_AS=different_name_here_if_you_want EXPORT_DIR=./db/fixtures/ae_datastore

sample import
rake evm:automate:import DOMAIN=ManageIQ PREVIEW=false IMPORT_AS=can_rename_it_here_as_well IMPORT_DIR=./db/fixtures/ae_datastore

thanks for the commands - it may interest you that for cfme- deployed systems updated to the /var/www/miq/vmdb/db/fixues/ae_database/ManageIQ content does show the /ManageIQ/Infrastructure/VM/Retirement/StateMachines/Methods.class/startretirement.rb but that is not showing up in the automation explorer at all.
Comment 16 Tina Fitzgerald 2015-11-25 17:02:18 EST
Hi Felix,

I'm still investigating your issue, but there are few things I'd like to mention.

My understanding of the attached datastores.
datastore sample - initial pristine datastore
datastore affected - after reset

The datastore contents look like they're reversed using the count of instances and methods for /Infrastructure/VM/Retirement/StateMachines/Methods(I'll refer to that as IVRSM) as an indication. It almost looks like you started with and the datastore reset did the right thing and brought it to the level.

datastore sample IVRSM - 7 instances/ 8 methods  
datastore affected IVRSM -  11 instances/ 9 methods

I've attached the ManageIQ domains for versions,, and which I've gotten from checking out the various branches. IVRSM - 11 instances / 9 methods IVRSM - 11 instances / 9 methods IVRSM -  7 instances / 8 methods

vm-207's ManageIQ domain has the IVRSM 11/9 count like it should and the preserved ManageIQ_5.4.3.1 IVRSM counts of 7/8 look like that of the version.

We're on holiday for a few days, but I'll check in on the ticket.

my reference system was not in the state I thought it was - closing as not a bug.
