Description Akshay Kapse 2022-02-14 05:26:40 UTC
Description of problem:
- SSH REX job fails on Satellite 7.
- Logs in dynflow console shows StandardError
- After debugging observed that foreman public keys were not copied but error logs haven't pointed it out.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- satellite-7.0.0-0.5.beta.el7sat.noarch

How reproducible:

- Easily.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Register a host to the Satellite.
2. Run the REX ssh commands job.

Actual results:

Job execution failed 

Expected results:
- Logs should point to the proper error description.

This is already fixed in tfm-rubygem-smart_proxy_remote_execution_ssh-0.5.2 which should be available starting with snap 9.

Comment 3 Peter Ondrejka 2022-02-14 15:33:11 UTC
Verified that ssh log level has been bumped on Satellite 7.0 snap 9. In the case of missing keys, the proxy.log says:

2022-02-14T10:17:46  [E] error while initializing command RuntimeError Unable to create directory on remote system /var/tmp/foreman-ssh-cmd-9b4d94fe-87fe-40c6-a15a-bdd5786ae2ef: exit code: 255
 root@hostname.redhat.com: Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic,password).

That points to the issue. But the original request was about the dynflow console, which in this case still reports the generic "StandardError: Job execution failed", so I'm wondering if more can be done there.

Comment 4 Adam Ruzicka 2022-02-14 15:55:39 UTC
Not really, no. Dynflow console gives access to low-level information and should be only used if the primary means (ie host output) give no hint towards what's going on. It isn't meant to be consumed by users directly

Comment 5 Adam Ruzicka 2022-02-17 13:34:59 UTC
Otoh, on snap 9 it is not visible in host's output, that should be fixed with smart_proxy_dynflow-0.6.2 and then #4 will finally apply.

Comment 9 Peter Ondrejka 2022-07-22 11:11:33 UTC
verified on Satellite 6.12 sn 3, the default ssh log level has been increased
