Description Gordon Watson 2016-02-15 14:17:53 EST
Description of problem:

After some VMs were restarted on a specific host, they got stuck in a 'Waiting for Launch' state, but only as seen by the engine. On the host, they were all 'Up' and the guests were accessible and working as expected.

As a test, one of these VMs was started on a different host and it came up ok. When it was then started on the same host as the ones that were "stuck", it too became stuck in 'Waiting for Launch'.

This sounded like a host-related issue at first, but since the easiest thing to try was to restart ovirt-engine, that was performed and that resolved the problem. Nothing was done of that host at all to affect this.

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

RHEV 3.5.7
RHEV-H 7.2 (20160105.1.el7) hosts 

How reproducible:

Ok after all our investigations did go no where, I need to ask some more questions:

- Are/Were there any 'Stateless' VMs running on the affected host?
- Is that issue still reproducible to the customer? If so, could you please try to give some more information on what you do when this happens?
