Description Tomáš Golembiovský 2018-03-05 00:17:35 UTC
Add support for querying the following information from QEMU Guest Agent:

- host name
- operating system
- time zone
- active users

Comment 1 Petr Matyáš 2018-03-19 10:06:39 UTC
Can you please provide feature page or proper description of this feature so I can consider making a test plan.

guest-agent communication is described here:

The test should focus on the new information being reported when ovirt-ga is NOT running anymore, and those are provided by the qemu-ga instead

Comment 3 Tomáš Golembiovský 2018-04-03 15:09:32 UTC
adding NIC address reporting

Comment 4 Petr Matyáš 2018-04-16 11:43:34 UTC
Using vdsm-4.20.25-1.el7ev (and qemu-guest-agent-2.8.0-2.el7.x86_64)

The only thing that is reported to webadmin (and visible in RESTAPI) is the NIC, neither hostname nor TZ, OS, active user info is reported.

Comment 6 Petr Matyáš 2018-04-16 11:47:44 UTC
Maybe also reporting local IPv4 and v6 addresses is not the best idea. At least I don't think I can connect to that particular machine with IP

Comment 7 Tomáš Golembiovský 2018-04-16 12:52:44 UTC
From vdsm.log it seems you have older version of QEMU-GA. You need at least 2.10 or newer.

Comment 10 Petr Matyáš 2018-04-17 14:39:09 UTC
Moving back to MODIFIED as we don't have qemu-guest-agent-2.10 on RHEL yet.

Comment 11 Petr Matyáš 2018-05-04 13:39:12 UTC
Verified on vdsm- using RHEL7 with qemu-guest-agent-2.12.0-1.el7.x86_64

IP, FQDN, OS, TZ and active user is reported
