Description Gaoyun Pei 2017-02-07 10:04:26 UTC
Description of problem:
Enable metrics deployment during installation with setting openshift_hosted_metrics_deploy=true, installation playbook failed as

TASK [openshift_metrics : Check that hawkular_metrics_hostname is set] *********
Tuesday 07 February 2017  09:22:39 +0000 (0:00:00.268)       0:15:16.403 ****** 
fatal: [ec2-54-152-80-115.compute-1.amazonaws.com]: FAILED! => {"changed": false, "failed": true, "msg": "the openshift_metrics_hawkular_hostname variable is required"}

Seems like a new option openshift_metrics_hawkular_hostname is required for metrics deployment, but it wasn't introduced in https://github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible/blob/master/inventory/byo/hosts.ose.example

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set openshift_hosted_metrics_deploy=true in ansible inventory, run the installation playbook

Test this issue with openshift-ansible-3.5.7-1.git.0.5010dec.el7.noarch.rpm.

Still got the same error.

    "failed": true


the openshift_metrics_hawkular_hostname variable is required

Comment 5 Gaoyun Pei 2017-02-15 04:41:48 UTC
Test this bug with openshift-ansible-3.5.8-1.git.0.0e02ef8.el7.noarch.rpm, it could work well on rpm env, will verify whether it works on containerized env after BZ#1421011 fixed.

For rpm installed ocp-3.5 env, set openshift_hosted_metrics_deploy=true in ansible inventory file, installation could be finished, and metrics related pod are all running.

Comment 6 Gaoyun Pei 2017-02-17 10:03:03 UTC
AS BZ#1421011 has been fixed, metrics basic deployment could be done via installer now, verify with openshift-ansible-3.5.10-1.git.0.ba66b63.el7.noarch
