Description Fabian Deutsch 2016-02-18 18:50:49 EST
Description of problem:
Currently host-deploy will install a couple of packages on a system which are not required by vdsm itself, (i.e. vdsm-cli).

The question is: Why are those packages not dependencies of vdsm - if they are required by it?

The complete list of packages beeing installed by host-deploy at deploy time is here:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install vdsm on a host
2. Disable all repos
3. Try adding the host to Engine

Actual results:
After 3: Failure because vdsm-cli can not be installed.

Expected results:
By manually installing vdsm in step 2, all required dependencies willl be installed.

vdsm-cli is there since initial commit: Sun Nov 18 02:20:25 2012.
It seems it's not used in any critical path so I'm fine with dropping it.
Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-02-24 10:06:13 EST
vdsm-cli is a required dependency of the sos plugin shipped within vdsm.
Please open a bz on vdsm for adding proper dependency there.
