Description John Pittman 2018-12-07 22:41:04 UTC
Description of problem:

After installing libstoragemgmt and libstoragemgmt-nfs-plugin, attempts to connect fail with the following error:

[root@localhost ~]# lsmcli -u nfs:// fs-export --fs 800 --exportpath /export1 --rw-host
PLUGIN_BUG(2): Unhandled exception in plug-in Data: Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/lsm/_pluginrunner.py", line 109, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/lsm/plugin/nfs/nfs.py", line 536, in export_fs
    efile = NFSPlugin._open_exports(readonly=False)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/lsm/plugin/nfs/nfs.py", line 269, in _open_exports
    efile = open(filename, mode)
FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/etc/exports.d/libstoragemgmt.exports'

The error is due to the /etc/exports.d/ directory not being present.  This can be fixed by installing the nfs-utils package.  To prevent the end user from encountering this failure, install nfs-utils when the libstoragemgmt-nfs-plugin is installed.

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


How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:

# yum install libstoragemgmt*
<lsmcli nfs command>

Actual results:

nfs-utils not installed automatically with libstoragemgmt-nfs-plugin

Expected results:

install nfs-utils automatically when libstoragemgmt-nfs-plugin is installed

the 'exportfs' command from that package is also required, so i have submitted a pull request that adds the relevant Requires line to the rpm spec file.

Comment 3 Jakub Krysl 2019-08-21 11:37:37 UTC
libstoragemgmt-nfs-plugin-1.8.1-2.el8.noarch.rpm requirements:
libstoragemgmt-nfs-plugin-clibs = 1.8.1
*** nfs-utils ***
python(abi) = 3.6
python3-libstoragemgmt = 1.8.1
python3-libstoragemgmt = 1.8.1
python3-libstoragemgmt = 1.8.1
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(FileDigests) <= 4.6.0-1
rpmlib(PartialHardlinkSets) <= 4.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1
rpmlib(PayloadIsXz) <= 5.2-1

Not nfs-utils is required for the plugins and /etc/exports.d is present.
