Description Candace Sheremeta 2019-06-27 15:44:47 UTC
Description of problem: For some reason, 3.11.123 prerequisites playbook does not seem to be setting the openshift_use_crio variable to the default of false when it is not explicitly defined in the inventory file, leading to these errors:

TASK [Verify SELinux is enabled] ***********************************************
task path: /usr/share/ansible/openshift-ansible/playbooks/init/sanity_checks.yml:42
fatal: [openshift.example.com]: FAILED! => {"msg": "The conditional check 'not openshift_use_crio | bool' failed. The error was: error while evaluating conditional (not openshift_use_crio | bool): 'openshift_use_crio' is undefined\n\nThe error appears to have been in '/usr/share/ansible/openshift-ansible/playbooks/init/sanity_checks.yml': line 42, column 5, but may\nbe elsewhere in the file depending on the exact syntax problem.\n\nThe offending line appears to be:\n\n  # https://docs.openshift.com/container-platform/3.11/install/prerequisites.html#prereq-selinux\n  - name: Verify SELinux is enabled\n    ^ here\n"}

Version-Release number of the following components:
rpm -q openshift-ansible


rpm -q ansible


How reproducible: I was not able to reproduce this after some simple testing, but I did check through the plays/tasks being run in my ansible logs vs customer ansible logs and did not see any significant difference between the plays/tasks run and the output between the two logs.

Additional info:

Will attach logs as private attachments

I was not able to reproduce this issue however a PR has been opened to ensure all defaults are loaded for all hosts during sanity checks.

Comment 7 Weihua Meng 2019-06-28 09:00:33 UTC
I can reproduce this.

Fixed in openshift-ansible-3.11.124

Hi, Candace

Although this bug is fixed, install is likely to fail due to not meet selinux settings

this is from master sosreport

Hey Weihua,

Excellent catch, thank you so much!
