Description Mike Burns 2011-09-12 23:24:00 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #723115 +++

Description of problem:
 This BZ is holder for issue - when I installed rhev-h-6.2-0.5.iso, I used management_server=IP:8443 & management_server_fingerprint=my:fp:... clauses. In this case vdsm-reg fetch wrong ca.crt (it looks it at   http://IP:8443/ca.crt). After approval the install failed. Then I changed port => 8080 in vdsm-reg.conf & restart vdsm-reg service, then host was installed successfully. 
 The problem is, that kernel param management_server & management_server_fingerprint stays there.

ovirt-node has been patched to read files in /etc/ovirt-commandline.d for a list of command line options to keep out of the default boot options.

vdsm needs to create a file with all it's kernel options listed out and place it in this directory.  File naming doesn't matter, but I'd recommend something like vdsm for the name.  Contents are simply one parameter per line in the file.

Comment 2 Yotam Oron 2011-09-14 06:23:31 UTC

vdsm-reg is taking its needed parameters from vdsm-reg.conf.
The values in this file are configured once, either via TUI or kernel params - both on installation. After that, the kernel params are not relevant anymore (at least in the vdsm-reg case).
From your description, it seems you might be using the wrong port (or older 
rhevm ?), which causes the certificate not to be downloaded etc.

Please clarify.

> Please clarify.

This is to avoid management_server* being propagated to grub config, they are installation-time only parameters so they shouldn't be present on subsequent normal boot from disk.
vdsm-config reads /proc/cmdline and changes vdsm-reg.conf on reboot after upgrade, so it might be confusing for users who changed vdsm-reg.conf to see it reverted to the values hidding in cmdline, esp. if there was a typo in the initial value which they wanted to correct.

Proposed patch is attached.

Comment 4 Dan Kenigsberg 2011-09-15 11:03:26 UTC
Is there any reason to haste this into RHEV 3.0 beta 3? If so, please wave the rhel-6.2.0 flag again.

I vote for 6.2: patch is simple and low-risk and for justification let's ask original bug submitter Pavel (bug 723115)

suggested upsteam patch

The patch seems harmless, but our typical user is not editing vdsm-reg.conf manually. I'm a bit worried about fixing a low-severity (and very old) bug during beta period.

I attach a version of Alan's patch rebased on upstream Vdsm. I prefer taking it only to there - unless there is a true reason for exception+.

Removed release_notes flag (not needed)

Comment 18 Yotam Oron 2011-10-03 13:53:39 UTC
Changing prio to HIGH.
Seems that this has a very undesired implication.
- Install a node with kernel params
- Change the RHEVM that the node is working with (using the TUI or any other 
  standard way)
- Upgrade the node
- vdsm-reg is trying to register with the old RHEVM (the IP address is in the 
  command line arguments that now seem to be parsed and processed on upgrade)

verified on vdsm-4.9-108.el6.x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor release 6.2 (20111019.2)

1. use an old version of rhev-h kernel params set vdc_host to host A
2. use TUI to change vdc_host to host B
3. register & approve to host B
4. upgrade the node from with in the RHEVM to version  6.2 (20111019.2)
5. check in vdsm-reg.com vdc_host param remains host B

same steps as Bug 744511
