Description ssoroka 2021-11-21 14:03:32 UTC
Description of problem:
During Windows VM creation there is a virtio-win containerDisk that is being used.
Previously we had Bug 1942839 which was fixed for 4.8 (fail to pull image with latest tag).
The solution was to reference this image with a digest instead of tag (the digest is taken from a configmap).
We experience now a similar issue but only for regular users (not cluster-admins).

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

How reproducible:
Try to create a Windows VM (that requires the default virtio-win drivers) in a disconnected (air-gapped) environment. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a Windows VM using a regular user (not cluster-admin)
2. Wait until the VM starts 
3. Verify that is stuck on starting phase and that the virt-launcher is in imagePullBackoff

Actual results:
VM is stuck on starting, virt-launcher fails to pull the virtio-win containerDisk image

Expected results:
Windows VM is successfully created 

Additional info:
Currently we use configmaps/v2v-vmware to let us know the clusters virtio-win image, this configmap is not readable to all.

Comment 1 Yaacov Zamir 2021-11-22 10:54:08 UTC
Moving to installation (hyper converged operator)

because HCO installs the local images air gaped environment images, and can put them in a config map that should be readable by project admin (non cluster admin users)

Comment 2 Oren Cohen 2021-12-13 12:36:12 UTC
Fixed in version:
hyperconverged-cluster-operator-container-v4.10.0-88 (https://brewweb.engineering.redhat.com/brew/buildinfo?buildID=1824536)

Comment 3 Guohua Ouyang 2021-12-15 03:34:30 UTC
Verified the bug with hco-bundle-registry-container-v4.10.0-465 and latest console, create a windows VM by non-admin user is running normally, virtio-win image is using the one in virtio-win config map and is able to pull down.
