Expected results:

ctdb-2.5 be able to upgrade to ctdb-4.x without installing samba packages.

Comment 1 Michael Adam 2016-02-09 19:07:41 EST
As already discussed by mail, currently it is not possible to install ctdb without installing samba from the rhgs channel due to these dependencies:

-> samba-client-libs
   -> samba-common
     -> samba-vfs-gluster
        -> samba
        -> samba-libs
        -> glusterfs
        -> glusterfs-api
     -> samba-common-tools
        -> samba-common-libs
        -> samba-libs
   -> libwbclient

We will fix the deps and ship an update.
The fix will consist in removing the
dependency to samba-vfs-glusterfs from samba-common.
This will require explicit installation of samba-vfs-glusterfs.

Not sure in which release we would ship this fix though. (3.1.2 or later?)
Comment 6 Jose A. Rivera 2016-02-12 01:43:49 EST
Looks fixed in latest builds:

RHEL6: https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com//buildinfo?buildID=479855
RHEL7: https://brewweb.devel.redhat.com//buildinfo?buildID=479854
Comment 7 surabhi 2016-02-12 03:06:22 EST

Does this build contains following two fixes or any other change?

1. Remove samba-vfs-glusterfs dependency from samba-common
2. Add a dep of samba-vfs-glusterfs to samba main pkg
Comment 8 Michael Adam 2016-02-12 03:14:05 EST
(In reply to surabhi from comment #7)
> Jose,
> Does this build contains following two fixes or any other change?
> 1. Remove samba-vfs-glusterfs dependency from samba-common
> 2. Add a dep of samba-vfs-glusterfs to samba main pkg

This build contains exactly those two changes compared
to the last build (-12).
Comment 9 surabhi 2016-02-12 14:27:02 EST
Verified as follows on RHEL6:

1.Install RHGS3.1 ISO
2. Subscribe to Live, add rhel,rhgs channel
3. Yum update
4. yum install ctdb (Which will install ctdb2.5 package in Live)
Note : No samba installed yet.
5. Add samba channel + latest puddles
6. yum update (CTDB gets updated to ctdb-4.2.4-13 without installing samba main and samba-vfs-glusterfs package)

Install       8 Package(s)
Upgrade      27 Package(s)

rpm -qa | grep ctdb

Verified on RHEL6, looks fine. Will be verifying on RHEL7 and will update the results soon.
Comment 10 surabhi 2016-02-16 04:36:03 EST
Verified with RHEL7.

Install 3.1 rhel7 iso
Update from Live
yum install ctdb 

rpm -qa | grep ctdb
ctdb2.5.x86_64 0:2.5.5-7.el7rhgs 

add samba channel 
yum update
samba will also get installed because of this BZ.

Now add puddles to get latest CTDB package with the fix .

1. If we do yum update it will update all the packages including samba package.
Everything will updated to latest including samba package.

From 3.1.2 onwards the ctdb package will not pull in the samba main package as dependency.
