Description Benny Zlotnik 2021-06-22 12:10:26 UTC
Description of problem:
Once bug 1955375 is ready, the manual steps for installation should become redundant. That is, python3-cinderlib and ceph-common would be installed automatically on the ovirt-engine machine, as well as python3-os-brick and ceph-common on the Vdsm hosts

Also openstack 16.2 should be used instead:
the change required is:
# subscription-manager repos --enable=openstack-16.1-cinderlib-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
# subscription-manager repos --enable=openstack-16.2-cinderlib-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms

Bug 1955375 is for upstream, but we are not having those packages in errata to be included in our repositories ....

Downstream we have only Appendix C where we document Installation of Ceph:

I am raising this because current candidate in errata tools is failing as it requires ceph-common on host to be installed:

error: Failed dependencies:
ceph-common is needed by ovirt-host-dependencies-4.4.8-1.el8ev.x86_64

ceph-common + its deps are not in any of our channels nor they are in errata tool to be shipped

Comment 3 Marina Kalinin 2021-09-22 02:18:39 UTC
I believe first of all we should fix this bz#1997666 on the subject, with much higher priority. 
Cause current instructions are incorrect, as bz#1997666 explains.
