Description Gordon Watson 2016-06-09 19:08:48 UTC
Description of problem:

Since upgrading to 3.6.6, we are now seeing instances of Live Merges completing, but the tasks in the Tasks pane in the RHEV Admin Portal are not being marked as having finished (an hourglass is displayed for the Finalizing step).

The 'RemoveDiskSnapshots' entry in the job table in the database is not getting changed to 'FINISHED'.

Thus it appears to the end-user that the snapshot deletion has not completed.

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

RHEV 3.6.6

How reproducible:

Not, but appears to be a repeatable problem.

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual results:

Tentatively targeting to 3.6.8 until we have an RCA.

Hi Gordon,
the operation that was performed was live merge of snapshot? or snapshot's disk live deletion?

Comment 13 Gordon Watson 2016-06-15 15:42:52 UTC
It was "snapshot's disk live deletion", i.e. a single disk live snapshot deletion as opposed to an entire live snapshot deletion. Please refer to comment #6, which provides the steps on how to reproduce this. 

When I opened the bug I didn't know exactly what caused it, hence the reproduction steps were added later.

Unfortunately, I'm going to be out of the office for an extended period of time, so I hope this helps to clarify the issue.

Regards, GFW.

Comment 20 Markus Stockhausen 2016-06-20 05:21:37 UTC

I think the solution does not cover the second bug as described in BZ1347243. 

The single disk live merge command starts its action with logging the wrong message: "Disks from snapshot deletion has been completed"

See engine log of BZ1347243:

2016-06-16 13:21:13,630 INFO Running command: RemoveDiskSnapshotsCommand
2016-06-16 13:21:13,738 INFO deletion has been completed <- WRONG!
2016-06-16 13:21:16,444 INFO Waiting on Live Merge child commands to complete
2016-06-16 13:22:42,169 INGO Merge command has completed

Comment 21 Ala Hino 2016-06-20 06:02:46 UTC
That issue reported in BZ 1344516 and already fixed.

Comment 22 Markus Stockhausen 2016-06-20 06:04:16 UTC
Good to see. Thanks for that info.

Comment 23 Allon Mureinik 2016-06-20 11:32:41 UTC
Ala - although the fix is obvious, many customers have faced this issue. Can you please provide some doctext highlighting it?

Comment 26 Allon Mureinik 2016-06-20 13:42:23 UTC
This bug does not reproduce on the 4.0 branch (the fix is for 3.6 only), but it was cloned to follow the z-stream process.

Setting to ON_QA so QA can keep me honest here.

Comment 27 Kevin Alon Goldblatt 2016-07-18 15:18:41 UTC
Tested with the following code:

Tested using the following scenario:
1. Create a VM with one disk.
2. Create a snapshot.
3. Start VM.
4. Got to main 'Storage' tab.
5. Select SD in which disk resides.
6. Go to 'Disk Snapshots' tab.
7. Select snapshot.
8. Delete snapshot.

The engine log reports that the Live Merge completed successfully
The events log in the Web Admin reports that the Live Merge completed successfully
The tasks window reports all stages of the Live Merge as having completed successfully

Moving to VERIFIED!
