Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1305009
cinder.conf gets overwritten on controller nodes upon redeploying an existing overcloud
Last modified: 2016-12-07 09:25:28 EST
The controllers are initially deployed with standard cinder configuration. Then the file is manually edited to integrate it with emc vnx on controllers.
Then they started scaling compute nodes gradually in this deployment. like add 2 compute nodes today, add another 2 after two more days, etc. When they scale compute nodes, some times cinder.conf on controllers gets overwritten to the default one. Some times the changes that they manually made remains without any effect.
We would like to first understand how it's actually expected works. When we scale compute nodes, is it expected that cinder.conf on controllers will always get overwritten? If yes, then why it's not overwritten during some attempts? If yes, then we should have to drive this manual change via director as a permanent solution. Right?
If it's not expected to overwrite, then why is it overwriting some time? If it's not expected to overwrite, then isn't it a bug that we need to fix?
They have put the next compute node scaling on hold to help us collect as much as details and logs. We need to tell them what logs we need to investigate if this is the bug that I mentioned earlier. They will scale and collect those logs.

This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release. It is being deferred to OSP 10.
This is a bug it would be good to fix sooner than later. Adding some people that could possibly check it during other OSP10 testing.
What version were you running in #c15?
Do we know if this is still an issue in OSP10/Newton?
Paul, looks like this doesn't happen any more.
On a RHOS10 build date: 2016-11-22.3
Added a #comment on cinder.conf on all 3 controllers
Reran deployment command, comment on cinder.conf remains post redeploy.

Closing current release accordingly.
