Description Raoul Scarazzini 2015-11-30 09:31:18 EST
Description of problem:

Installing Liberty via OSPd ends in error on DELL PowerEdge R710, introspection fails, it seems because DHCP fails on all interfaces. Maybe the problem is related to the InfiniBan adapters.

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

8-director (rhos release)

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure repos with rhos-release -P 8-director (using RHEL 7.2 as undercloud);
2. Generate images:

export RHOS=1
export DIB_LOCAL_IMAGE=rhel-guest-image-7.2-20151102.0.x86_64.qcow2
export DIB_YUM_REPO_CONF="/etc/yum.repos.d/rhos-release-8.repo  /etc/yum.repos.d/rhos-release-rhel-7.2.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/rhos-release-8-director.repo"
openstack overcloud image build --all

3. Launch introspection:

openstack overcloud image upload --image-path /home/stack/images/
json_verify < instackenv.json
openstack baremetal import --json ~/instackenv.json
openstack baremetal configure boot
openstack baremetal introspection bulk start

Actual results:

Introspection didn't finish for nodes 1b652cd0-4738-45a3-9528-218203c1ffca,2f6d1b7d-50e5-4bf7-9a89-92c549729dbf,341dd84f-3016-4ade-a171-51b76dca335e,f488d010-9f53-494f-832e-d4288df0ffe3

Expected results:

Introspection completed without any error.

Additional info:

The same hardware gets installed with the release 7 of the director.

DHCP failure screenshot

The first thing that I've noticed on the target machine is failed dhcp-all-interfaces element, so I suspect it might be a DIB issue actually.

IPA data screenshot

The 2nd screenshot seems to confirm my guess. Don't pay attention to ERROR-level log messages, see the red arrow instead.

I suspect that no interfaces got any IP address, hence IPA could not possibly reach out to ironic-inspector.
Comment 4 Raoul Scarazzini 2015-11-30 11:52:05 EST
We finally find out what was causing the problem. Even if the error messages were related to infiniband device, there were others related to the firmware of the bnx2 ethernet adapter, which were missing.

So it was sufficient to upload these files into the image:

modinfo -F firmware bnx2

and, after regenerating the images, the introspection ended up successfully.

Closing this beacuse, in my opinion, this is not a bug.
