Description Scott Shambarger 2022-06-22 19:34:22 UTC
Description of problem:
Upgrading the cephadm package removes the cephadm user (and home directory), which removes the ~cephadm/.ssh/authorized_keys file, causing the node to appear offline in the orchestrator.

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

How reproducible:
Always when upgrading the cephadm package from a prior release.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cephadm
2. Install ssh public keys in ~cephadm/.ssh/authorized_keys
3. Upgrade cephadm

Actual results:
~cephadm home directory is removed

Expected results:
~cephadm/.ssh/authorized_keys should remain unchanged.

Additional info:
I've reported this upstream at https://tracker.ceph.com/issues/55664 (now fixed)

To fix the Fedora rpm spec, two patches are required... (both applied to ceph master and being backported)

# only remove cephadm user on uninstall:

# correctly mark ~cephadm/.ssh/authorized_keys as config(noreplace):

For ref: there is also a bug for this issue fixed in Red Hat Ceph Storage: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2013085

Looks good, worked on second reinstall (of course, during upgrade from previous version, cephadm was still removed as the bug was still present in the old package... but that's to be expected)
