Description Karel Volný 2010-06-17 03:38:34 EDT
Description of problem:
Please see the history for dell-pesc1420-01.rhts.eng.bos.redhat.com

at 2010-06-16 13:04:11 the system got reserved by mbanas, but at 2010-06-16 13:04:12 I got the system, and I was able to start provisioning, but then the machine was "stolen" from me because of the earlier reservation

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version - 0.5.43
Comment 1 Ales Zelinka 2010-06-21 06:11:28 EDT
Raising severity - this looks like a serious problem that could lead to hours of lost work. Also proposing for beaker_blocker - it is not a regression pre se, but an unreliable machine reservation is IMHO serious enough to stop us from switching from RHTS.

Please look into this. Thanks.
Comment 2 Marian Csontos 2010-06-21 09:47:52 EDT
Hint: This will not steal machine already reserved for some time as this only happens when machines are reserved concurrently - notice the small time interval within which this happened. Looks more like a transaction lock is missing somewhere: concurrent threads/processes runs as follows:

1.   check the machine is available

  2. check the machine is available

1.   reserve the machine

  2. reserve the machine
Comment 3 Bill Peck 2010-06-21 10:57:31 EDT
Ok, I found the code for manual reservation and indeed there is a chance that it can happen.  Should be easy to fix.
Comment 4 Bill Peck 2010-06-22 15:58:13 EDT
Fixed in git.  Will go out in Tomorrows upgrade.
