Description Matthew Farrellee 2016-01-05 13:38:01 EST
Description of problem:

using ansible-playbook directly, not the installer wizard, and localhost as one of the nodes for an ha master deployment. the install fails.

the inventory file contains -
localhost openshift_hostname="{{ ansible_default_ipv4.address }}"
192.1.0.[4:5] openshift_hostname="{{ ansible_default_ipv4.address}}"

localhost is and this bug does no occur when changing the inventory to -
192.1.0.[3:5] openshift_hostname="{{ ansible_default_ipv4.address}}"

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. create inventory w/ localhost as above
2. ansible-playbook -i inventory /usr/share/ansible/openshift-ansible/playbooks/byo/config.yml
3. there is no 3

Actual results:

TASK: [Retrieve the etcd cert tarballs] ***************************************
fatal: [localhost] => Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/ansible/runner/__init__.py", line 586, in _executor
    exec_rc = self._executor_internal(host, new_stdin)

    f = open(dest, 'w')
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: u'/tmp/openshift-ansible-S0CPusr/etcd-'
FATAL: all hosts have already failed -- aborting

Hi Matthew, what user are you running ansible as?

I'm curious if we should use 'become' here to escalate privileges.  I'll summon Jason.
Comment 2 Matthew Farrellee 2016-01-08 18:07:53 EST
username was cloud-user, which had sudo access
Comment 3 Jason DeTiberus 2016-01-11 12:56:04 EST
Can you provide the following:

- version of ansible
- full inventory file(s)
- the ansible.cfg file if you have made any changes...  (lookup path is /ansible.cfg, ~/.ansible.cfg, /etc/ansible.cfg)
- The permissions and SELinux contexts of '/tmp/openshift-ansible-S0CPusr/' and '/etc/etcd/generated_certs/etcd-'
- The error when running ansible-playbook with -vvvv

When running under localhost, the task that failed *should* work, since it should be running under sudo already, otherwise the tarball creation would have failed, since it's created under /etc/etcd/generated_certs/ and cloud-user wouldn't have permission.

There could be some oddities around our use of the fetch module or SELinux preventing us from accessing the temp directory created without sudo.
