Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: The package ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup was not added as a requirement of the engine-setup packages. ovirt-imageio-proxy package was a dependency of the engine itself, and required ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup. Consequence: On upgrade from earlier versions, ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup was installed only in the middle of engine-setup, so could not affect it - so the question whether to configure the Image I/O Proxy wasn't asked and it was not configured. If engine-setup was ran again, it was activated, asked and optionally configured the service (actually failed configuring it, due to bug 1365451). Fix: ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup was added as a dependency of one of the engine-setup packages. Result: When following the normal upgrade instructions, upgrading engine-setup packages pulls in also ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup so it can ask and configure the service. Workaround: When upgrading, install also ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup before running engine-setup.

Description Barak Korren 2016-08-10 07:00:59 UTC
Description of problem:
BZ#1365451 raised a question - why did the 'ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup' issues occurred on the 2nd engine-setup run but not the first one?
The reason for that is that the 'ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup' package was not installed the 1st time engine-setup was run.
Following the logic of the "ovirt-engine-dwh-setup" package, it may be tha case that we need to have engine-setup refuse to run now if 'ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup' is not installed and up to date.

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

How reproducible:
The following flow should theoretically reproduce the issue:

Steps to Reproduce:
0. start with a blank host with ovirt repos configured
1. 'yum install ovirt-engine-\*setup\*'
2. run 'engine-setup'
3. run 'engine-setup'

Actual results:
The 1st engine-setup will also install 'ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup'
The 2nd engine-setup will actually try to setup 'ovirt-imageio-proxy'

Expected results:
The 1st engine-setup should require 'ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup' so it could setup  'ovirt-imageio-proxy'

Additional info:
The reason this is not failing the ovirt-system-tests ATM is because ovirt-system-tests currently does 'yum install ovirt-engine' rather then 'yum install ovirt-engine-setup'.
Please open a bug against it if this should be changed.

No sure ATM if this also made the upgrade jobs fail, those are, alas, too fragile ATM.

If you need to have ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup installed before running engine-setup (which does the upgrade), you need to add "Requires: ovirt-imageio-proxy-setup" into setup-plugin-ovirt-engine RPM (same way as we enforced installation of ovirt-engine-extension-aaa-jdbc in 3.6)

Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-08-10 09:27:17 UTC
the whole imageio stuff are handled by Amit, moving to him.
I think we can add a Known Issue on ovirt 4.0.2 release notes about it.

Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2016-08-10 09:27:22 UTC
Bug tickets must have version flags set prior to targeting them to a release. Please ask maintainer to set the correct version flags and only then set the target milestone.

General note: Bugs, and especially verifications, should be described functionally. In current case the bug should have had summary line:

imageio-proxy is not asked about, thus not configured, on upgrade from 3.6 to 4.0, but only on the next run of engine-setup after upgrade.

(or something shorter, but you get my point).

'this requires that', or 'this does not require that' is hardly a bug in itself. It can be a root cause for a bug, as in current case.

Also verification, obviously, should have been:

1. Installed and set up 3.6 engine
2. Added 4.0 repos and ran 'yum update ovirt-engine\*setup\*'
3. Ran engine-setup - was asked about imageio-proxy, replied yes
4. imageio-proxy was successfully configured
